!!The Pharcyde provides examples of the following tropes:

%%* ADateWithRosiePalms: One of the things talked about in their song "On The DL".
%%* AllMenArePerverts: "On The DL"
%%* DidNotGetTheGirl: "Passing Me By"
%%* DirtyRap: One of the verses from "On The DL".
* MurderBallad:
** "On The DL" contains a verse about killing somebody.
** Fatlip spends his verse on "4 Better Or 4 Worse" crank calling a lady and then detailing exactly how he plans to murder her and mutilate the body. She reacts how you'd expect.
* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: The Pharcyde was a pioneer in fusing {{Jazz}} and HipHop, along with Music/ATribeCalledQuest, Music/DeLaSoul and Music/JungleBrothers.
* RewindGag: The video for "Drop" runs entirely in reverse. Thus, we see the band members spring to their feet from a lying position, rolling up stairs, repelling a bucket full of water upwards, and near the end, instantly piecing together a mural painted on glass with a hammer before wiping the paint off with paintbrushes.
* TeacherStudentRomance: The first verse of "Passin' Me By" involves Bootie Brown singing about how he used to have a crush on one of his teachers and made a point to always attend her classes.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Should I pursue to do you, or just stroke my knot?" A [[MaleToFemaleUniversalAdaptor knot]] would not be a unusual description of the anatomy of a canine, but unless the narrator is a FunnyAnimal, this lyric is strange.
%%* TheStoner: "Pack The Pipe" and "Blaze"
%%* YourMom: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Yo Momma"]]
