People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm is the debut album by the alternative hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, originally released April 10, 1990 on Jive Records. Though the album was well-received critically, it had little mainstream appeal. The album did earn the band a devoted following, however, within the alternative hip hop community. People’s Instinctive Travels was praised for its lyrical inventiveness and bizarre sense of humor, mixed with socially aware and literate message tracks. The record was given the perfect rating of 5 mics in The Source in 1990. It is one of three A Tribe Called Quest albums included in The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums. It also was certified gold by the RIAA on January 19, 1996.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, Hip-Hop pioneers A Tribe Called Quest are releasing the original album remastered from the original tapes and re-released with exclusive new remixes by Pharrell Williams, CeeLo, and J. Cole.
