Pharrell Remixes A Tribe Called Quest Classic “Bonita Applebum”
Rap icons A Tribe Called Quest will be reissuing their 1990 LP People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm on November 13th with remixes from CeeLo Green, J. Cole, and Pharrell Williams. Pharrell just released his percussion-heavy rendition of “Bonita Applebum” ahead of the LP’s remastered release. He’s been noted as having a lot of respect for ATCQ and often cites them as a huge inspiration. In a deleted scene from the 2011 documentary Beats, Rhymes, and Life, Pharrell explains:
“A Tribe Called Quest is cerebral. It’s priceless. It’s music theory for anybody that wants to be a producer. Go study that.”
Check back for the legendary reissue on November 13th!
