A Tribe Called Quest's debut album, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, is getting a special reissue to celebrate its 25th anniversary, including remastered versions of straight classics like "Can I Kick It?" and a new opportunity to catch up on the underrated songs (we see you, "Luck of Lucien"). As part of the rerelease strategy, there's a bit of new music, including a remix of "Bonita Applebum" by Pharrell himself. "Bonita Applebum" is one of the best hip-hop love songs, period, and it's beat is as distinctive as pretty much everything else about the brightly-clad, goofy young Tribe from the People's Instinctive Travels period, but this remix more or less effectively updates the vibe of the track, and is chill enough listening for your late night tonight. Listen to the remix below, and read Pharrell and Al Gore in conversation for Paper here. [via Complex]
