Random Jam: The Pharcyde-"She Said"

This song used to jam but it seems like the only songs/singles people remember from The Pharcyde's Labcabincalifornia album are "Runnin" and "Drop." Granted both of those songs were effing great, but "She Said" is pretty jamming too.

This version that I'm posting isn't the original that appeared on the album or in the American version of the video. Rather, this more laid-back, Jay Dee (J-Dilla) produced version that I'm posting is on the Cydeways: The Best of The Pharcyde CD and is referred to as the "Amsterdam version."

Folks already thought that Tre and Fatlip were the stars of the group and their performances on this song, on top of not having Imani and Bootie Brown's high-pitched voices on it, pretty much cemented that. I always thought the way Tre could go from rapping to singing without missing a beat was dope, just like how Fatlip's ability to sound like he was talking on a track made him standout. Hated that this group wound up dissolving.

Anyways, hope you enjoy this track. I never saw this version of the video on TV back in the day though. Thanks youtube.

I play this song at least once a week. That Heatwave sample is smooth as hell. I had to put both She Said videos on the hard drive.
