Q-Tip Renounces A Tribe Called Quest Doc

It was all good just a week ago. Q-Tip took to his Twitter account yesterday (December 2) to announce that he no longer co-signs Michael Rapaport’s documentary on his group A Tribe Called Quest.

“I am not in support of the a tribe called quest documentary,” he wrote on Thursday afternoon. “The filmmaker should respect the band to the point of honoring the few requests that was made ab[ou]t the piece. The filmmaker sh[ou]ld respect the band enough to honor our request regarding the film.”

When asked to comment further on his problems with the movie, titled Beats, Rhymes & Life, a rep for Q-Tip said the Queens native did not want to speak at this time.

Conspicuously a trailer for the project showing Tip arguing with Phife Dog made it’s way onto YouTube earlier this week, only to be quickly removed.

The flick, which has been in the making for years, will be making its premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival this January. —Elan Mancini
