The 1st track of the 1st album. A perfect introduction to the jazzy and eclectic sound of A Tribe Called Quest. An insanely creative track listen to it and note there is no actual bassline, just a bass-kick! Ali Shaheed Muhammad masterclass on the production tip complemented by some clever bragging and boasting rhymes by Q-Tip and Phife — dopeness. Humorous and cheeky, you just gotta love Bonita Applebum. Hard not to get energized by the Busta Rhymes sample chorus. Oh my God! An all-time party classic.

How do you feel about that. I really hadn't considered a lot of the points people have brought up. If you can only think of alcohol and coffee for a good time, you're very disappointed. Good luck to both of you on working this out, and if you decide that interfaith marriage is something you can handle and your gentlemen turn out to be the right men for you, then welcome to the club. Know her limits on substances. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there. I have many friends and members of my family who married within the church and later divorced. Love in Different Languages.
