Weed dealers of today can only look back in anger at the levels reached by The Pharcyde ‘s connect, Quinton , who was immortalized on that one skit off the classic Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde back in ’92 (“Quinton’s on his way with another J…”). Homie not only got mad pub for his services, but actually got a short-lived deal with Tommy Boy, releasing a single, “Quinton’s Here.” Hell, he even shot a video for it.
While we’ll be the first to admit that not everything is OK with Q’s rhyming, he at least didn’t front, choosing to call the b-side, “I’m Not an MC.” All that aside, the dude appeared to be having a blast being a rapper even if it didn’t last. Those who remember this era well will spot members of the Jazzyfatnastees, Da Wascals and, of course, The Pharcyde in this clip.
