The Pharcyde, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde

A deviation from the gangsta rap that had been coming out of L.A. in the 1990s, this 1992 debut from The Pharcyde was both sonically varied (a bit more jazzy) and a lyrical risk, infused with humor instead of violence. It contained the classic single "Passin' Me By."
