A Tribe Called Quest Hates “Can I Kick It”

Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Jarobi & Phife stopped by Hot 97 this morning and joined Ebro for a little game of “One Gotta Go.”  The hosts presented the trio with 4 classic A Tribe Called Quest records, “Bonita Applebum,” “Can I Kick It,” “Electric Relaxation” and “Scenario” and asked them to pick which one they wished they had never made.

Which, if you asked me that question, you may as well be asking me which one of my kids I love the least. I mean, how do you erase any of those from the Tribe catalog? I guess, gun to my head, it’d have to be “Bonita,” because all of the rest of them are so undeniable.

As it turns out, Phife and Ali fucking hate “Can I Kick It,” and Jarobi wasn’t all that enthusiastic about it either. I feel like Q-Tip might disagree, but this was very distressing to watch as a Tribe stan.

The reissue of People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm drops next Friday and you can catch the guys performing on Fallon tomorrow night.
