The Pharcyde

Tuesday, April 4 by ivan

if you're into oldschool/oldschool style hiphop and have yet to check out The Pharcyde, then i strongly suggest doing so. they started out in the early 90's in south central and quickly became a favorite alternative hiphop act though their first album "Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde" (1992) didn't really sell all that well.

if you ask me, The Pharcyde still sounds pretty fresh even today which is no easy feat. anyway, i've attached a couple of tracks off "Bizarre," one of which you may already be pretty familiar with as well as a crazy music video that was directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation).

Nice, I'm digging the old school hip hop.

The video is a bit silly. The backwards vid seems overused now but I can vaguely remember seeing it for the first time eons ago. It's still mesmerizing to watch though.
