Go here to view A Tribe Called Quest's video interviews discussing the upcoming documentary that the members aren't all gung-ho about. ARTISTdirect.com covered the breaking news stories about the legendary rap group being less than thrilled about the finished product and they've now endeavored to tell their side of the story when it comes to the doc.
On Monday, March 14th, A Tribe Called Quest members Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi (via phone) spoke with MTV's Sway for an exclusive interview on their concerns with the ATCQ documentary, Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest. The film, directed by TV and film actor Michael Rapaport, premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival and there has been controversy surrounding the group's support. With this interview, A Tribe Called Quest clears up its point of view and discusses the actions that led them to finally speak out.
The videos are broken up and it certainly sheds light on the issues about being on the inside and outside and ATCQ talk about Nas' involvement in the project. The band also feels deceived by Rapaport.
