A Tribe Called Quest, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm (1990)
Label: Jive, RCA
Big Boi: "I like this album because it was their first record. It was the first one. And I'm into the breakout stuff, and what made me fall in love with the group. You know, 'I Left My Wallet in El Segundo,' man Tribe was just cool as hell. Of course, I could've went The Low End Theory or Midnight Marauders, but I don't go with what everybody else do. I listen to all of the music.
"And then, 'Bonita Applebum' was on that record. How you gonna not get past 'Bonita Applebum?' Come on now. You know they play that shit in the club every Friday."
