Overview

LabCabinCalifornia is a more mature record than The Pharcyde's debut. That's not necessarily a good thing, as the group's playful attitude and comic raps were much of what made them so irresistible. True, age has enlightened The Pharcyde on "Moment in Time" and the single "Runnin'," the former a salute to the past and the latter a description of their flight from South Central's Pharcyde Manor to the Hollywood Hills. But the music is much of the problem here. Though the raps are solid, tempos never vary from the usual mid-tempo jam. The keyboard-driven melodies are good -- some better than others -- but a little variety is needed. The last three tracks ("The Hustle," "Devil Music," "The E.N.D.") do evoke the spirit of the debut, but by that time it's too late -- the sophomore jinx has hit. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide

One of the hottest joints that came out in 1995 along with Rae's Cuban Linx, Smif n Wessun's Shining and The Infamous. Everything about this album is hip hop. No sophomore jinx for these cats. They elevated their game with this joint with sharp production and crisp rhymes. Labcabin in my opinion is a must have for true hip hop fans.
