Labcabincalifornia is the second album by The Pharcyde, released in 1995, three years after their debut Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde. The album's production was handled by The Pharcyde themselves and Jay Dee, with additional help from Diamond D and M-Walk.

The first single was "Drop". The video for "Drop" was directed by Spike Jonze, and used footage of the group performing the song backwards, replayed backwards, giving it a surreal quality. The backwards theme of the video is also a reference to the song itself, which features a backwards sample. "Drop" was a hit, as was the follow-up single "Runnin'.

Overall, this album is a more mellow and introspective affair than their debut and features more somber themes such as dealing with fame and success, drug abuse, and broken down relationships. - Wiki

“Compared to their debut, The Pharcyde pushed the envelope not only lyrically but sonically as well. There’s live instrumentation on a handful of tracks; “Something That Means Something” and “Moment In Time” feature signature drum, bass and guitar riffs and melodies that serve as a precursor to other sounds in hip-hop and later, neo-soul. “Drop,” the album’s sleeper single, is a significant example. An innovative and unconventional staple in Jay Dee’s work that features a trippy inverted looped organ sample as its blueprint, the offbeat bass, and matched with an amazing music video; it only gets better from there.” - Treble Zine
