This jam comes from the boutique brand and record label, Gummy Soul, which was created by Nashville producer Wally Clark along with producer/emcee Amerigo Gazaway. Together, they recently released a 55 minute mash-up album titled, Bizarre Ride: A Quest to the Pharcyde, which is the perfect soundtrack for a mellow weekend. It features reinterpreted instrumentals with select original lyrics from a few hip hop legends: A Tribe Called Quest (ATCQ), The Pharcyde and Black Moon.
This particular song has perfectly balanced rhythms with just the right amount of understated pitch. Between the iconic vocals from The Pharcyde’s “Passin Me Bye” that eventually lead to the soulful funk rendition of ATCQ’s “1nce Again” and the classic hip-hop tune “How Many Emcees” by Black Moon, this track exudes quite the affectionate and calming aura that many hip hop fans of the Golden Era can certainly appreciate.
