Hot! A Tribe Called Quest Documentary Set For Release

Hip-Hop fans are preparing for the release of an exciting new documentary focussing on one of the most influential groups in the genre’s colourful history.

Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest will release on September 3rd and document the multi-platinum selling group’s influence within rap as well as details of their sudden break up in 1998.

Travelling with the band members, Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White, director Michael Rapaport captures the story of how tenuous their relationship has become, how their personal differences and unresolved conflicts continue to be a threat to their creative cohesion.

When mounting tensions erupt backstage, the documentary reveals a behind-the-scenes look at their journey and contributions as a band and what currently is at stake for these long-time friends and collaborators.

Described as ‘Raw’ and ‘Thrilling’ by the Indie Wire, the documentary also includes interviews with The Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Mos Def, De La Soul and Common.

A screening of the film will be shown tonight (August 31) at Rough Trade in London as well as the Tribe’s own Ali Shaheed Muhammed performing in Brixton on September 15th.
