When The Pharcyde came out in the late-’80s and early-’90s, they were labelled as “alternative” because their humorous, playful style did not align with either of the West Coast gangsta rap sound nor conscious rap umbrellas. Turns out, the two remaining members are still as open-minded as they were back then. In a recent Billboard interview at the BottleRock festival in Napa Valley, California, Imani describes his openness to new music:

“It’s fun to be able to still just be able to do our thing, you know, that’s what it is. And not be grumpy old men that [are] hating and sh*t, because a lot of our compadres and people that came up with us, a lot of them fools be hating on the young millennials.”

He shares that ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar and Kaytranada as contemporary artists he enjoys listening to, but also said that he likes a lot of music by people he doesn’t know.

“That’s the deal with the Internet: People send you shit and you’re like, ‘What is this? It sounds good. Who is this?’ There’s just a lot of that kind of stuff.”
