The Pharcyde - "My Bad"

There's some controversy on whether "My Bad" is a new track from 90's hip hop legends The Pharcyde or just a Fatlip solo song that features verses from Slimkid3, Imani, and Bootie Brown that weren't originally planned for a Pharcyde song. (We're not going to get into that as it's pretty drama filled and convoluted, but if you're curious there's an extensive Rolling Stone article about it.) But, if you're a fan of The Pharcyde from way back in the Bizarre Ride II... days, hearing these four all on one song is absolutely thrilling. Is this as great as the songs off Bizarre Ride II...? It's not, but what truly is? "My Bad" is more along the lines of 1995's Labcabincalifornia, and that is not a bad thing. It's a laid back track that seems to show all four members apologizing to each other, which can only make diehard fans dream of what could be.

You can watch the video for "My Bad" below. The song is currently available on Fatlip's album Sccit & Siavash The Grouch Present... Torpor which you can find over at Bandcamp. For more on Fatlip, check out his Instagram.
