Labcabincalifornia, the second album by The Pharcyde, emerged in 1995, marking a three-year gap since their debut, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde. The production of the album was a collaborative effort by The Pharcyde themselves, Jay Dee, with additional contributions from Diamond D and M-Walk. The music video for the album’s lead single, “Drop,” directed by Spike Jonze, showcased the group performing the song backward, played in reverse, imparting a surreal quality. “Drop” achieved notable success, as did the subsequent single “Runnin’,” which reached #55 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In contrast to their debut, Labcabincalifornia is characterised by a more mellow and introspective tone. The album explores somber themes, including the challenges of fame, success, drug abuse, and fractured relationships. Despite its critical acclaim for consistency, smooth production, and poignant subject matter in retrospective reviews, the album’s sales did not match the success of Bizarre Ride, falling short of Gold status. Although initially met with mixed reviews due to the group’s shift in direction from their previous album, Labcabincalifornia gained recognition for its depth.

Following the release of Labcabincalifornia, Fatlip departed from the group to focus on his solo career.
