Why They Broke Up: Things started to fracture when the group realized that their producer J-Swift was making as much money off their music than all four members combined. After bringing Jay Dee on board for their follow-up Labcabincalifornia, Fatlip's drug problems started to get in the way of things and the group lost their key member. Slim Kid also left shortly after to pursue solo stardom, the remaining group members would use the Pharcyde name over the years for a series of increasingly mediocre projects.
Why They Got Back Together: A decade later, none of the members had any significant career prospects, so after Fatlip cleaned up his act, the much-needed reunion was on. They've since headlined a series of tours, including the 2008 Rock The Bells tour and the All Points West Festival in 2009. No new music with all four members has been released since 1995.
