On November 13, A Tribe Called Quest will reissue their debut LP, 1990’s People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. In addition to the remastered album, the reissue will feature remixes from Pharrell, CeeLo Green, and J. Cole (in collaboration with Raphael Saadiq). Today, Pharrell has shared the first remix. Hear his take on "Bonita Applebum" below, via Rolling Stone.
In 2013, Pharrell spoke to Elle about the group’s influence: "I did not have a style back then," he said. "I was just then discovering A Tribe Called Quest, which led me to the understanding that I could be whatever I wanted to be, even if at a minimal level, it was just being different. That’s when I learned I could be different. And then my identity started to really come out. And then, right around 1990, I started having style."
