My 90s Playlist

TRACK 5: "Can I Kick It?" by A Tribe Called Quest


Track five is when the listeners trust you, so you put on a song you really love. It may seem simple -- fun lyrics, call and response, a bassline that sounds familiar -- but you could talk about it for hours. And if you’re listening to your playlist with Hanif Abdurraquib, the writer of the incredible book Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes on A Tribe Called Quest, you’ll want to talk about “Can I Kick It?” for as long as possible Credits - Hosts: Tracy Clayton and Akoto Ofori-Atta - Guests: Hanif Abdurraqib - Lead Producer: Eric Silver - Editor: Brandon Grugle - Executive Producers: Amanda McLoughlin and Tracy Clayton - Produced by: Multitude & Sony Music Find Us Online - Website: my90splaylist.com - Twitter: twitter.com/sonypodcasts - Instagram: instagram.com/sonypodcasts - Facebook: facebook.com/sonypodcasts About The Show The 90s are back in so many ways, but our favorite tracks never left.
