VIDEO OF THE WEEK: A TRIBE CALLED QUEST – ‘CAN I KICK IT?’

May 11, 2020

One of the most creative outfits to have emerged from the hip-hop scene of the early 90s…

A Tribe Called Quest always managed to convey intelligent messages without resorting to over-earnestness or hectoring seriousness. A sense of fun and joy always beat at the heart of their music, and it’s entirely palpable throughout the video for ‘Can I Kick It?’

Rooted in a sample of Lou Reed’s ‘Walk On The Wild Side’, this Jim Swaffield-directed video captures the fun of the single thanks choreography, colour and a feeling that nobody is taking things too seriously. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that!
