 A Tribe Called Quest: Bonita Applebum

You gotta put me on

Sunday morning and i’m in a Tribe Called Quest kinda a mood, after recently watching their documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, the 2011 documentary directed by Michael Rapaport I’ve been listening to a lot of their old stuff. Bonita Applebum was such a major track back in 1990 I remember at the time thinking this was a sublime tune that cemented A Tribe Called Quest’s place in hip-hop royalty along with De La Soul.

The song contains samples of Mathar by The Dave Pike Set, Daylight by RAMP, Memory Band by Rotary Connection, and Fool yourself by Little Feat.

Bonita Applebum was the second single from A Tribe Called Quest's debut album People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.

A popular Why remix was made, which heavily sampled the song Why by Carly Simon. Another remix was done in 1993, with a new beat and new lyrics. There is also a third remix titled Bonita Applebum (Hootie Mix) that samples The Isley Brothers' Between the Sheets and also has new lyrics. Between the Sheets was briefly featured in the film Poetic Justice, which coincidentally stars Q-Tip.
