*A new documentary, highly anticipated by most and long over due for others, hits theaters this weekend.

Michael Rappaport’s long awaited tribute to 90s hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest takes us behind the music for an intimate look at the ups and downs of one of the genre’s most beloved bands.

We went one on one with both Phife Dawg (in this posting) and Rappaport (in another posting) to discuss the film.

Take a first look here at “Beats, Rhymes & Life,” aptly coined after the band’s 1996 album of the same name, and recall why we think the  film is a MUST SEE and why we’ve decided to repurchase our lost Tribe CDs.
