#tbt A Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It?

Celebrating the life of lead singer Phife Dawg, our TBT today is the classic ‘Can I Kick It?’. The music video, directed by Jim Swaffield, features A Tribe Called Quest and various others, including members of De La Soul, literally kicking the word “it” while rapping in a film set, an alley, and a construction site. With so many samples used on the track, including Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’, the band literally did not receive a penny when it came out!
