Slim Kid3

Adjunct Instructor


Slimkid3 of The Pharcyde is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut album Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde. Rolling Stone Magazine put the album at number 73 in the Top 200 Hip Hop Albums of all time. A great accomplishment for this, South Central Born, LA Native. Under the mentorship of Reggie Andrews (R.I.P. producer of hit song, Let it Whip, by The Dazz Band and Patrice Rushin), Slimkid3 honed his chops alongside J Swift (producer of Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde), and L.A. Jay (Pharcyde Producer of Otha Fish). In these early days, he and his band, 242, also mastered music production and performing as a dance crew back in the day; most notably, as The Fly Guys aka 242 on In Living Color in the Vanilla Ice Skit with Jim Carey. This crew later became The Pharcyde, connected with DJ P (Paul Stewart), signed to Delicious Vinyl and the rest is history. After moving forward with his solo album, "Liberation", Slimkid3 also formed a collaboration with DJ NuMark of Jurassic 5, called TRDMRK, featuring Austin Antoine. Together they brought tracks that are musical fire. Slimkid3 is currently a Portland native, DJing the local circuit when he’s not on the road with his original band, The Far Side, formerly of The Pharcyde. In 2022 they are touring the US for the 30th anniversary of the release of Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde.
