As a member of The Pharcyde, Fatlip contributed to the critically acclaimed Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde as well as the follow-up release Labcabincalifornia. After the release of the Labcabincalifornia album, Fatlip was kicked out of the group for leaving the supporting tour for their second album in favor of working on his own solo efforts. It is rumored his departure from the group may have also been linked to his use of cocaine.
