The Pharcyde Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde on 2LP
Originally released in November 1992, Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde emerged at a time when gangsta rap dominated what people were hearing, seeing and buying, especially on the West Coast. The Pharcyde's refreshing sound – lively, humorous and inventive lyrics over lush, jazzy productions – changed hip hop's trajectory and influenced a generation of artists. Produced entirely by J-Swift with easily some of the tightest and most inventive beats of the era, Bizarre Ride II features only one guest appearance, provided by little known Los Angeles rapper Buckwheat. The iconic album is home to the singles "4 Better Or 4 Worse," "Otha Fish" and their biggest hit "Passin' Me By," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Rap charts and #52 on the Hot 100. In the last 20 some odd years, Bizarre Ride II has solidified its reputation as a timeless five-star classic beloved by critics, fans and artists alike!
