Pharrell Remixes 'Bonita Applebum' For A Tribe Called Quest Album Re-Issue: Listen
Twenty-five years after their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, legendary rap group A Tribe Called Quest are reissuing the classic record.
The reissue is set to feature remixes by many artists including CeeLo Green, J. Cole and Pharrell Williams, whose version of the group's “Bonita Applebum” premiered Tuesday (Oct. 13) on Rolling Stone.
This is a big moment for Pharrell, who has shared his admiration for the group many times over the years -- especially because of the song he had the opportunity to remix for them
