A Tribe Called Quest is getting the documentary treatment with the film Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest, in theaters this summer.
The legendary hip hop crew’s entire career is covered in the movie, from lead rappers Q-Tip and Phife Dawg first meeting in church as children to the eventual drama that caused the group to split. Several of the rap world’s biggest names provide the commentary, including Common, ?uestlove, Kanye West, and Mos Def.
A Tribe fan himself, director Michael Rapaport said that to him the band “meant the same thing as the Beatles, Led Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones.” Rapaport also promised footage of “unplanned and unexpected moments of truth and honesty.” Maybe we’ll find out whatever happened to that wallet in El Segundo.
