THROWBACK THURSDAY: Passin’ Me By – Pharcyde

Ok! This beat is bananas (produced by J-Swift). I could play this instrumental 43792x over and never get tired of it. This track shows off their story-telling skills, keeping it 100 with the audience. “Passin’ me by” is a truly relatable tune. Boy crushes on girl, admires her, wants his love reciprocated, but she has a “nincompoop” of a boyfriend and he has to let her pass. He “proves to be a better man” by doing so. True hip-hop, no garbage lyrics. And real production containing 6 samples, and being a sample itself… Ohhh yessss. You can find this goody on Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde (1993)
