They can kick it — and they will again on Friday.

A Tribe Called Quest, who last performed together in 2013, will reunite on the Nov. 13 installment of NBC’s The Tonight Show.

The performance on Jimmy Fallon’s show is tied to Friday’s 25th anniversary reissue of the seminal hip-hop group’s first album, 1990’s People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, which contained such tracks as “Bonita Applebaum,” “Can I Kick It?” and “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo.” The special edition contains remixes by Pharrell, J. Cole, and Cee-Lo.

A Tribe Called Quest formed in 1985, called it quits in 1998, only to reunite in the mid-2000s. In 2013, Q-Tip tweeted that ATCQ’s final performances would be opening for Kanye West that fall.
