I have never listened or even heard of The Pharcyde before this week. This alternative hip hop group came across my attention while at work. Their song “Passing Me By” came on the radio and I didn’t know that the song had been sampled by Joe back in the 2000s. I bought their first album “Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde” and I have to say I understand why this album has been regarded as one of the best in classic hip hop. The album has many stellar tracks with goofy and interesting lyrics.
One of the best songs on the album is “On the DL” which is produced by J- Swift and has a jazzy feel to it with its lyrics on sexual desire. Check it out above.
