We The People... - A Tribe Called Quest

Speed: 93 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Never thought I'd cover another new single from this group. Glad to be wrong. Definitely feels like a Tribe track; guttural guitar riff, thumping, head-nodding percussion, and the unmistakable presence of QTip and Phife Dawg. Worth a spin on a hiphop night or at an anti-Trump rally. If you're staying key-compatible, consider mixing or mashing up with:

Don't You Need Somebody - RedOne
Work - Rihanna ft. Drake
Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Lean Back - Terror Squad, Fat Joe & Remy
Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home) [feat. Plies] - Usher
Gold Digger - Kanye West
Try Again - Aaliyah
