If you’re not up on J. Cole the producer, now is your chance to get up on him.
The rapper stepped behind the sound board to remix A Tribe Called Quest’s “Can I Kick It?”
Keeping Q-Tip and Phife Dawg’s bars in tact, the emcee modernized the 1990 track with some added flair and instrumentation.
The revamp will appear on the 25th anniversary edition of People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm (Nov. 13), which also recruited Pharrell and Ceelo for remakes of “Bonita Applebum” and “Footprints.”
Listen to Cole’s version and then the original below.
