Can I Kick it? Super deluxe 25th anniversary pressing of ATCQ's classic debut. Jive went all out on this piece, hooking up the masterful jazz thing album with a double 180 gram vinyl pressing featuring freshly remastered sound by Grammy award winning engineer Bob Power, 3 new bonus remixes by Pharrell, Ceelo Green, and J. Cole, an essay by Harry Allen, and a beautiful iridescent gatefold jacket. With Phife Dawg's (RIP) recent passing, there is no better time to revisit this influential golden era hip-hop classic. Includes surprise favorites like "After Hours" and "Footprints" that continually grow on you between the hits "Bonita Applebum," "I Left My Wallet," and "Can I Kick It?." Plus: Push It Along, Luck Of Lucien, Pubic Enemy, Youthful Expression, Ham N Eggs, Mr Muhammed, Go Ahead In The Rain, and Description Of a Fool. Recommended.
