The Pharcyde
In the early 90’s, when gangsta’ rap consumed the airwaves, and the majority of West Coast rappers strapped on their Locs, Chuck Taylor’s & Ben Davis’, The Pharcyde decidedly maintained a willfully weird vision. Opting to stay true to themselves with their left field but still South-Central sensibility, rap had seen few groups so self-deprecating and so smart, a group of visionary rappers adroitly able to split the difference between helium-voiced and hard-core.

Listening to “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde” two full decades after its release, its sense of timeliness is unmistakable. Every song on the album inverts a hoary hip-hop cliché. With classics like “Oh Shit,” “Otha Fish”, “Ya’ Mama,” and hit single, “Passing Me By,” it is not surprising that it shipped over a million units, garnered comparisons to De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest, and everyone from Pitchfork Media to The Source has hailed it as one of the greatest albums ever made.

Speaking on the passage of time, their second release “LabCabInCalifornia” has revealed exactly how far-reaching The Pharcyde’s vision was. From enlisting a young and then unknown James Yancey aka J DILLA to produce beats, the classic “Runnin” to collaborating with director Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich” “Adaptation”) on the video for “Drop,” it has consistently reinforced their steadfast refusal to tread familiar artistic grounds.

Today, The Pharcyde is still performing and touring the globe. They continue to hone their individual abilities yet carry on the name & legacy in its original fashion. They still seduce their audience with the same boyish charm that founded them at the beginning. Now, it’s combined with the knowledge that has been bestowed upon them as men who have taken on, and rose to the challenge of the rap game. The end result of all this hard work is a band that’s still influencing the hip hop artists and sounds crowding our radio waves today and will continue to for many years to come.

A LITTLE ABOUT 5Ve:
Born in Motown Detroit in 83', then living in Atlanta until moving out to CO in 96', Quinn '5Ve' Lynch' comes from a rich upbringing of composing & producing all original and organically made beats, singing, songwriting, rapping, recording engineering and performing hip hop since around 1997. He formed his first group, Audible Audities, in Boulder, CO at the turn of the century, and released his first studio record in 2007, Audible Audities-Last Call Poets. 5Ve later created his second group, Glitta Kings, in 2010, and have since released 2 studio albums with this project.
in 2014,, he made his first efforts at creating his still all original music outside of his comfort zone, pushing the envelope exploring the whole new genre of throwback soul and r&b, and released 5iVe-Radioland feat. Jessica Jones in 2015, showcasing his self taught singing and ability to adapt to any given environment.
5Ve signed to local label/movement Universal Language Entertainment, where he now lends his production, singing, songwriting and rapping, and will release his first solo hip hop album, 5Ve featuring GaDJet-Facetious in early 2018 under the label.
With such a wide array of range and diversity in his talent and craft, 5Ve has become a seasoned music artist and curator and continues to make his music with 100% creative control for over 20 years now. Expect much, much more out of him for the future.
