Photos: The Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief bring a night of classic hip hop to Cervantes Denver

Anyone who says hip hop is dead wasn’t at Cervantes in Denver last night. California OG’s The Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief made a clear statement about the status of classic rap, rocking a completely sold out house and reminding us why both groups have managed to stay relevent for over 30 years straight.

Souls of Mischief set things off proper with veteran stage presence and group synergy, as each unique emcee stayed in their lane, stepping in and out of the spotlight seamlessly. They rocked a full set with cuts from their debut album as well as quite a few fan favorites from Hieroglyphics discography. They closed out the set with the timeless banger, “93 til’ Infinity,” and the venue completely erupted.

After a quick intermission, DPG’s DJ Cell took the stage to drop a few classic records to get the crowd ready for the The Pharcyde. The Los Angeles group took the stage with their unrivaled energy to a frenzied audience that knew every word from jump. It’s easy to forget just how many classic they have in their discography, but they quickly reminded the fans why they’re considered one of the greatest hip hop groups of all time. Starting the set with selections from their debut album “Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde” they took fans on a journey through the hits and album cuts including “Yo Mama,” “Pack The Pipe,” “Runnin,” “Drop,” “She Said,” and of course the massive hit record that put them on the map forever, “Passin’ Me By.” Fatlip, Imani, and Slimkid Tre each played their part in an unforgettable performance that’s going to be tough to top for any acts coming through cervantes in the near future.
