The Pharcyde – Drop

Los Angeles-based Pharcyde, formed by rappers Imani Wilcox, Romye “Booty Brown” Robinson, Tre “Slimkid” Hardson and Derrick “Fat Lip” Stewart, released a surreal light-hearted fresco of the ghetto, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde (Delicious Vinyl, 1993), which stood up in the age of gangsta-rap’s doom and gloom. However, LabCabinCalifornia (Delicious Vinyl, 1995) tried to mix rap and pop in a rather straightforward manner: it is merely funny, whereas the debut was lunatic. Plain Rap (2001) was a jazzier album, probably the most musical of the three. Only two of the original members were left on Humboldt Beginnings (2004): Wilcox and Robinson.
