Exclusive Video: A Tribe Called Quest Get Nostalgic

Jarobi White gets reflective outside Q-Tip's childhood home

Celebrating 25 years since their breakthrough debut album, ‘People's Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm', A Tribe Called Quest have released a special anniversary edition of the album, which features bonus tracks remixed by CeeLo Green, J.Cole, and Pharrell Williams.

It's a welcome and suitably affectionate recognition of the impact and influence that the Queens, New York, hip-hop crew had, and continue to have.

Formed as a quartet in 1985 with MCs Q-Tip and Phife Dog, DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and rapper Jarobi White, they became a trio when White left a year after their debut's release. It contained perhaps their most famous hit, ‘Can I Kick It?’, but most significantly, it introduced a group that extolled an effusive and penetrating facet of jazz-infused hip-hop quite at odds with the gangsta rap so pervasive at that time.

Four albums, 25 years and three solo careers later, the group have reunited a handful of times – most notably as part of Kanye's 'The Yeezus Tour' – and assembled once again to compile this commemorative release.

Catching the group in a nostalgic mood, Clash presents this global exclusive video of founding member Jarobi White ruminating on their formative years outside the childhood home of Q-Tip. Check it out:
