Legendary hip hop group



We’re not going to talk about how Imani, Slimkid3, and Fatlip created two of the most classic back-to-back Hip Hop albums in the 1990’s as The Pharcyde (Bizarre Ride II: The Pharcyde and Labcabincalifornia).

We’re not going to talk about how The Pharcyde was one of the most popular Hip Hop acts of that era nor are we going to talk about the necessary lineup changes needed to move forward.

No. We’re going to talk about where they are now and how Imani, Slimkid3, and Fatlip made what was once only a dream finally come true. Officially reunited as The Pharcyde, the talented West Coast trio is preparing to embark on a three- week spring European Tour in March, Australian Tour in June & Asia Tour in November.

But before that was even a possibility, Imani had to go through some spiritual transformations that took him to a place of forgiveness and acceptance. After all, in 2015 interview, IMANI said it would essentially take an act if God for him to reunite with Slimkid3 and Fatlip, who’d been performing as Bizarre Ride following The Pharcyde’s split. But after the death of his grandmother, life looked different.

“That’s just really what it was, just to keep it real.” IMANI says. “I was dealing with issues inside my own head, and thought it was the world, but it was inside my own mind. I created my own demons. “I asked myself, ‘What do you want if you don’t have to worry about what anybody else wants or to make anybody else happy?’ And the first thing that came up to me, the universe said, ‘You got to make it right with your brothers.’ And the universe didn’t say, “Make music with them.” It said, ‘Make it right.’”

And that’s precisely what we did. The Pharcyde is currently working on new music and a 30th anniversary project to commemorate the release of Bizarre Ride II. A limited-edition producer’s tape was released on January 22nd, 2020 (digitally available April 2nd, 2022, through “Spear of the Nation” artist’s pages) featuring The Pharcyde, Wu-Tang Clan luminary Inspectah Deck and more. Executive produced by Spear of the Nation, the tape kicks off yet another colorful chapter in IMANI, Slimkid3, and Fatlip’s story, one that’s just beginning.
