Equal parts musical visionaries and impish class clowns, the fresh-faced Los Angeles natives ushered in a golden era of hip hop with their critically acclaimed debut, Bizarre Ride II: The Pharcyde. The album, released in 1992, gave hip hop one of its most enduring classics—“Passing Me By”—and unwittingly defined the sound of a generation.From his Gold-selling early-90s debut to his chart-topping new release, Slimkid3 brings a timeless quality to music that has long propelled hip hop’s golden-era sound into the future.

When it comes to making good music there are certain key components that make the music. Time, feel, groove and pulse are all part of what makes the drummer important to the sound. Understanding what the artist wants and the musicality, is why Tyrone Hendrix is one of the more sought after drummers in the industry. Currently, Tyrone is playing with Mike Phillips, Liv Warfield Experience, Doo Doo Funk All-Stars, Tony Furtado and has recently graced the stage with the incomparable Stevie Wonder.
