“Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest” documents the inner workings and behind-the-scenes drama that follow the band, A Tribe Called Quest, even today and explores what’s next for a group many claim are the pioneers of alternative rap. Having helped to pave the way for innovative hip hop artists, A Tribe Called Quest has kept a generation hungry for more of its groundbreaking music since the group’s much-publicized breakup in 1998. A Tribe Called Quest has three platinum albums – “Midnight Marauders,” “The Low End Theory” and “Beats, Rhymes & Life,” multiple Grammy nominations and headlined the 2008 “Rock the Bells” concert series alongside Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan.
