Currently playing: The Pharcyde ‘Labcabincalifornia’ 20th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

If you’re a Hip Hop head – best mixtape you’ll likely hear this week. Classics from The Pharcyde, as well as a bunch of the original songs that they sampled for their album – as well other groups and songs THEY in turn influenced.
DOPE.

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Pharcyde’s sophomore album Labcabincalifornia, our friend Chris Read has crafted a fly-as-pie mix of album tracks, remixes, and original sample material. Tune in and enjoy!
