Humboldt Beginnings

Humboldt Beginnings

by The Pharcyde



Whittled down to only two original members, Imani Wilcox and Bootie Brown (aka Romye Robinson), the Pharcyde embraced the immensely soothing aspects of weed for fourth album Humboldt Beginnings. This 22-track record, leavened with the contributions of new members Spaceboyboogie X and "Greg" Smooche, begins with a bongo-led jam called "Homegrown" and benefits from a raft of workmanlike productions. In the Pharcyde's attempt to crawl back into the hip-hop limelight, though, they scatter their efforts working in a variety of styles. The frequent weed songs are interspersed with club thumpers ("The Uh-Huh"), smooth '80s-influenced lovers tracks ("Knew U," "Right B4"), and one of the most hilariously overblown gangsta tracks (perhaps humorous?) ever performed ("Bongloads II").

Another amazing outing for the Pharcyde. Once a fan always a fan. The beats can't be denied, and BB and Imani bring it as strong as ever. BigMess
