About Can I Kick It?

"Can I Kick It?" is the third single from A Tribe Called Quest's debut album People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. The song, which has a call and response chorus, was recorded in 1989, when the band members were aged 19. It contains samples of "Walk on the Wild Side" by Lou Reed, "What a Waste" by Ian Dury and the Blockheads, "Spinning Wheel" by Dr. Lonnie Smith, "Dance of the Knights" by Sergei Prokofiev and "Sunshower" by Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band. Band rapper Phife Dawg has stated that, because of the use of the "Walk on the Wild Side" sample, the group didn't receive any money from the single, with Lou Reed instead claiming the profits."Can I Kick It?" appears on the band's 1999 compilation album The Anthology, where the outro of "Bonita Applebum" is added to the beginning of the song.
