Right turn, 'Cyde

Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of The Pharcyde's debut album, and yet their performance of Ya Mama on the British youf TV show The Word in 1992 still hasn't found its way to YouTube. Never mind, though, because some fanboy on the 'Tube has made a video for the Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde song which was never a single but really, really, really shoulda been:

The Pharcyde - Officer (unofficial video)
(From YouTube; 2017)

Oi Terry "Tezza" Christian - remove that Nonce Harris video from your The Word YouTube channel, homie, and put the Pharcyde video up in its place.

Bonus beats: we'll always have the times Public Enemy, Onyx, Digable Planets, Cypress Hill, and Snoop performed on The Word. LMFAO @ the show's bookers choosing Craig Mack over Biggie during the 1995 Bad Boy U.K tour, though.

The Word also had performances from Da Lench Mob, Arrested Development and The Gravediggaz. All dope.

Mark Lamar called Arrested Development "one of my favourite groups" on there (or words to that effect.)

I mean, I quite liked Everyday People meself, but 'cmon, m8.

Lamarr hosted a "greatest ever" list show on channel 4 for rappers round the turn of the century, got to number 1, prefaced it w lots of "also my fav" n it was only Will Smith :)

tbh I kinda feel him on that one though.

The only time I've heard Lamarr mentioned this decade is when somebody said Tom Hardy's portrayal of Reggie Kray was a dead ringer for him circa the 90s.
