Instrumental version of Amerigo Gazaway's Tribe x Pharcyde mash-ups! Ya'll should remember Amerigo from his last mash-up effort Fela Soul, and here on Bizarre Tribe he puts those blending skills to work on classics from two legendary rap groups. The combination of Tribe and Pharcyde works perfectly like peanut butter & jelly as heard on "Runnin," (now with the beat of "Electric Relaxation") "Bonita Keeps Passin' Me By" ("Bonita Applebum" raps over "Passin Me By"), "Ya Mama And Stuff," and "Otha Otha Fish." The flawless mixing and matching of raps and beats makes every track on here a win-win situation. Don't get it twisted, though. The tracks featured here are not just the instrumentals from those seminal hip hop songs. They're fully reworked to great effect by Amerigo Gazaway. Think of these as classics that never were, from a parallel universe. Recommended for hip-hop heads and mashup fans alike. Full instrumental version.
