Tre Hardson and Fatlip - Emo's - October 25, 2007

From the Gary Larson department... Tre Hardson and Fatlip of The Pharcyde @ Emo's on Oct. 25th... along with The Tre Hardsons, Omni, DJ Cee Brown, and DJ Twist One...

As I sit here writing this and watching Kinsey, some damn fool upstairs is bouncing some golf ball or some sh*t... so annoying... I feel like going upstairs and complaining but I'm sitting here in my underwear and too lazy to move. Damn laziness will one day be the end of me...

More info:

The Pharcyde is a rap group from the West coast of the United States. The group was formed in South Central Los Angeles (now South Los Angeles), where the group's members grew up. The original members of the group are "Slimkid3" (Tre Hardson), "Fatlip" (Derrick Stewart), "Imani" (Emandu wilcox) and "Bootie Brown" (Romye Robinson). The group is best known for its hit singles "Passing Me By" and "Runnin'," as well as its first album, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde.

The group was largely missing from the Hip Hop scene between 1997 and 1999. The three remaining members returned in 2000 with an EP titled Chapter One: Testing The Waters. They released a full studio album later in the year titled Plain Rap. The album had a luke-warm reception, critically and commercially. Soon after the release, member Slimkid3, now going by his birth name of Tre Hardson, left the group to pursue a solo career. In 2002, he released his first solo album "Liberation".

The two remaining members, Bootie Brown and Imani, continued with the group name and released an album in 2004, Humboldt Beginnings. The album received even less attention critically and commercially than their last effort. Former member Fatlip released his solo debut in 2005, titled The Loneliest Punk. A Pharcyde compilation was released in 2005, titled Sold My Soul-The Remix & Rarity Collection, featuring a number of remixes and rare songs.

In 1998, Tre contributed vocals to Korn's song "Cameltosis" from their album Follow The Leader.

In 2003, Bootie Brown and Imani were featured on the DJ Danger Mouse and Jemini the Gifted One Ghetto Pop Life album track "Medieval".

In 2005, Bootie Brown featured on the Gorillaz track Dirty Harry.

In 2007, Fatlip featured on The Chemical Brothers track The Salmon Dance.

The next Pharcyde album, tentatively titled, Eclectic Compassion is scheduled for an early 2007 release date.
