Yes, they most definitely can.
Currently riding the celebratory waves of their 1990 debut album Peoples Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythms 25th anniversary, the original members of A Tribe Called Quest shared the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon stage last night for a special reunion performance. Thrillingly backed by the legendary house band The Roots, Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi blessed the in-studio audience and viewers at home with a sparkling, nuanced rendition of their classic track “Can I Kick It?”
To commemorate 25 years of their classic first long player, A Tribe Called Quest reissued an expanded version of the album yesterday, November 13th, featuring three fresh new remixes, including Pharrell Williams take on Bonita Applebum and J. Coles reimagining of Can I Kick It? Next month, the Get On Down record label unveils a limited edition 45s Box Set vinyl companion piece comprised of eight 7-inch singles on black vinyl.
In case you retired early last night and neglected to set your DVR, check out the performance in full below and enjoy! Plus, peep the throwback videos for the original track and Tribe’s memorable 1991 “MTV Unplugged” appearance!
