Watch The Pharcyde “Runnin'” 1995 throwback classic music video, directed by Block.
From The 1995 Album : Labcabincalifornia. Produced By : J Dilla ( Jay Dee )
The song samples popular jazz artist Stan Getz’s “Saudade Vem Correndo”, from his 1963 album “Jazz Samba Encore”. The sample loops a small section of the track’s bridge, layering on additions from other sections of Getz’ song (such as Getz’ sax solo parts).
“Rock Box” by Run–D.M.C. is also sampled, the “Run” sample plays the part of the hook.
The track “Qtio” by Brothomstates samples a line from this song.
In 2003, singer Mýa sampled the song for her single “Fallen”, which led to a collaboration between Mýa and The Pharcyde.
