The Wascals | The Dips [On My Jammie Mix] | 1994

The Wascals (also known as Da Wascals and The Lil’ Waskals) was a group from the West Coast formed by Bucwheed, Spit-Anky, Alphie, and St. Imey (all named after the characters from the 1992 movie “Our Gang”) The group signed to Delicious Vinyl in 1993 and were often compared to their labelmates The Pharcyde to the extent that they were referred as “The Baby Pharcyde”. Their album “The Greatest Hits” was produced by J-Swift (also producer of The Pharcyde), and by Mr. Delicious Vinyl himself, Michael Ross, although it was eventually shelved and later re-released in 2007. The Wascals jumped into the game with their first 12″ “The Dips”, which was followed by “Class Clown” b/w “Hard Rhymes”

The Pharcyde feat. Bucwheed — I’m That Type Of Nigga [Original] /

Produced by J-Swift
(1992)

This track appears on all copies of Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde, but only the first pressings have this version. The remix that appears on most editions of the album features the same drum break, but removes the guitar and some of the other instrumentation present in the original. The subsequent reissues also replace the original “Passin’ Me By” with the video remix re-recording.

Guest MC Bucwheed (then known as Buckwheat), who also rapped a taste on “On The DL”, was a member of The Wascals.

To find an original pressing of Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde, look for the album cover without the infamous embedded black-and-white PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT LYRICS logo (thanks, Tipper Gore!). Also, you should not see a Delicious Vinyl website address written within the rear cover’s copyright information, as the World Wide Web didn’t exist in 1992.
