A Tribe Called Quest Coming To A Theatre Near You with New Documentary
By Len Brown
Regarded as one of the most iconic pioneers of alternative/conscious hip-hop music, A Tribe Called Quest were at the forefront of the hip-hop community until their untimely breakup in 1998. Thanks to actor Michael Rapaport, fans and music historians alike will get an in-depth look at the group in the documentary, 'Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.'
The Rapaport-directed documentary takes viewers on an hour and a half trip through the trials and tribulations of the group, including their Queens origins, revealing interviews with members and what caused the rift in what some consider the most influential hip-hop group of its time.
Saturated with ATCQ's music, excerpts from artists like Beastie Boys and Common, behind-the-scenes footage and more, this documentary will surely give you a new outlook on the group, whether you're a fan or not. 'Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest' hits theatres in NY and L.A. July 8.
