Pharrell Remixes A Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Applebum"

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."

The Chinese startup that made one of the best Android phones of 2014 is coming out with another new phone

OnePlus ThreeThe Verge

Documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (via Phone Scoop) appear to show a new phone from OnePlus, the company behind a series of cheap smartphones that received excellent reviews. 

The new phone, which is unnamed beyond "E1005," has a 5.5-inch display which places it directly competition with the iPhone 6S Plus. The design appears to be a blend of the 6S and the iPhone 4, with rounded edges and a speaker/micro-USB setup that is similar to new iPhones.

Both the OnePlus One and OnePlus Two run a version of Android which has been "forked" — a process that essentially removes Google’s services — making them popular in countries such as China, where Google is banned. The phones are incredibly cheap, especially when compared to high-end Android devices or the latest iPhones. The OnePlus Two is set to cost around £239 ($366) for the 16GB model. 

OnePlus has an event scheduled in India today where the new handset may be unveiled.
