Labcabincalifornia is the second album from The Pharcyde, a hip hop collective consisting of 4 members. Although it has a very different, less playful style than the first record (Bizarre Ride), it's still an excellent album, and in my opinion is even better than their first effort. The album has many stand-out tracks (She Said, Emerald Butterfly, Hey You!, Drop etc.), the best is the J Dilla produced classic 'Runnin'' which is a hip hop staple that every fan of the genre should hear.

This is an absolute classic hip-hop album, its easily my favourite pharcyde album and one of the best hip-hop cds that I own. It has some really good samples and the pharcyde are some of the best MCs I've heard.
I seriously recommend this to anyone into happy, chilled out hip-hop like de la soul, people under the stairs or tribe called quest, or if you're just looking to get into some new hip-hop you cant go wrong with LabCabin California.
Thats it... get this!

..... is there any more explanation needed as to why you should buy this?

It's their early stuff. Straight outta what many call the golden era of hip-hop.
Shootin Hoops, Wearing Nikes, Bright Clothes, Wanting to have fun.
Thats what this album is about.
It's no Bizarre Ride, but it is early Pharcyde. That should be enough!

Most important point first: This album must be judged on it's own merits and not by comparison to "Bizarre Ride"; the artists are older, hip-hop has moved on, etc.
That out the way (and I AM a fan of that album): this album is brilliant. "Runnin" is probably one of the greatest all-round hip hop tracks ever, and should make any fan of the genres top 10, but even without it the album is entirely strong. It sounds amazing production-wise; a smooth and consistent listen from start to finish (even with the skits), the beats all different but with a coherent sound. Lyrically, far from sounding "uninterested" as the main product review suggests, this is one of my favourite group efforts with regards to a mix of conscious and laugh-out loud lyrics. Sometimes the lyrics on a record are just so satisfying to listen to, not just simply one dimensional rapping over the top but almost bending around, playing with words and tones, and for me this is a great example, really emphasising how uninteresting and monotonous modern MCing is. This is one you'll be joining in with after a coupla listens...
I'm not guaranteeing every person would like every single track on this, but if you like this era and style of hip-hop, this is entirely essential. My only regret is waiting so long to buy it!

A must have if you love this era of hiphop, 90's produced the best quality and quantity in my opinion.

This is one of the greatest album ever, filled with feel good nostalgic classics, on par with Bizzare Ride II, I'd say. and the album art!!!! Omg I love the album art more then life itself.

What a brilliant album. At first I was very sceptical but after a few listens i fell in love with this smooth hip hop lp. It is ear friendly and tracks like runnin make this a must have for any true hip hop fan.
