5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Laid back Hip Hop, 21 Feb 2004
By 
This review is from: Labcabincalifornia [Us Import] (Audio CD)
This is a classic piece of 90's East coast hip-hop, very much in the 'Daisy Age' vibe of De La Soul and Tribe called Quest.
This is their 2nd and Best Album, following on from the excellent but slightly overly zany 'Bizarre Ride'
If you haven't heard track 4 'Runnin', then at least check that out, it's a good indicator of what this is all about.
Good lyrics, excellent raps and some great samples all add up to make this a real easy listen and a definite all time-favourite for me.
'Drop' is another good'un on here, as sampled by the Beastie Boys, which has the classic Band going backwards only played backwards so they're all going forwards video clip by legend Spike Jonze.
This is very much at the R & B end of hip-hop, so if you like it rough, rugged and raw - this isn't going to be for your taste.
My recommendation is to take a ride with the Pharcyde, all the way back to 1995!
