Last week, rapper Q-Tip Tweeted that he does not support actor Michael Rapaport's upcoming documentary about his group, seminal hip-hop act A Tribe Called Quest. Tip explained the source of his beef during an interview on Sirius XM's Shady 45, saying, "I can't really go too much into it, but what I will say is, a lot of people when they look at that, they automatically assume I'm speaking just as the subject, that I'm not supporting it 'cause I ain't like it." Q-Tip also told new morning host Elliott Wilson that "I'm a producer on the film, Tribe is a producer on the film. I'm speaking for the whole group... Different things need to be done edit-wise. The sentiment of the film is there, 80% is there, it's just not done."
Q-Tip also hinted that director Michael Rapaport might be rushing into the release because he is inexperienced as a director. "It's tough when you are an up-and-coming director and you're working on something out of your pocket, you kinda wanna see it... and you start speeding a little," he said. "Not saying that's the case, but, one can connect the dots. It's not done yet... It's just that simple."
Does the drama surrounding this doc make you want to see the film?
