Michael Rapaport’s A Tribe Called Quest documentary trailer (which has been taken down off YouTube) was pretty juicy: it features Q-Tip and Phife Dawg arguing, bickering and accusing each other of being the reason why Tribe is no longer together. Apparently Tip has taken some umbrage with his portrayal in the film: He’s taken to his Twitter to complain about the film, essentially disowning it.
I am not in support of the a tribe called quest documentary. The filmmaker should respect the band to the point of honoring the few requests that’s was made abt the piece. The filmmaker shld respect the band enough to honor our request regarding the the film
It’s likely Tip thought Rapaport would be delivering a love letter, and this one seems like it’s that, plus an honest look at how the band disintegrated. We’ll all get to judge how Tribe is treated once the movie premieres at Sundance next month. [Daily Swarm]
