Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest

[15]

United States 2012, 97 mins
Director: Michael Rapaport

Best known for songs such as 'Bonita Applebaum' and 'Can I Kick It?', and classic albums such as 'Midnight Marauders' and 'The Low-End Theory', the influential Queens-based group pioneered a jazzier, sunnier sound at a time when Gangsta rap was on the ascent.

Their 1998 break-up shocked the industry, and this film picks up with Tribe in 2008, when they reunited to perform sold-out concerts across the country. It wasn’t all plain sailing...

This all-access film focuses on the inner workings, personal relationships and behind-the- scenes drama that define the band.

No stone is left unturned, with a host of musical legends (including Kanye West, Common and Mos Def) on hand to pay tribute.

You won’t need to be a die-hard hip-hop head to enjoy this revealing, funny and finally very moving film.
