Entertainment Reviews:

It's this tension -- between the joyful nostalgia for the group's glory days and these spikier present-day predicaments -- that captures perfectly the essence of what A Tribe Called Quest always represented: beats, rhymes and life.

3.5 stars out of 5 -- [I]ts mix of elements makes it a notable statement on the band and their creative process. Inimitable in form and content, it has something for everyone: a robust mix of experimental artistry, unbridled passion and intense conflict.

BEATS is a welcome blast of '90s nostalgia, taking us back to a time -- and a sound -- that pulsates with optimism. -- Grade: B+

Product Description:

Actor Michael Rapaport turns documentary filmmaker with this look at the turbulent career of progressive New York hip-hop outfit A Tribe Called Quest. Interviews with such fans and contemporaries as the Beastie Boys, De La Soul, Ludacris, Kanye West, and Common reveal how the group helped steer collective hip-hop consciousness in an exciting new direction by combining divergent styles and penning positive lyrics before deciding to call it quits back in 1998. Additional interviews with members Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Q-Tip, and Phife Dawg during their 2008 reunion tour offer added insight into their glory days as hip-hop pioneers, and life after A Tribe Called Quest.
