Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest

Beats is a welcome blast of ’90s nostalgia, taking us back to a time — and a sound — that pulsates with optimism.
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest” gives the seminal early ’90s hip-hop group as stylish and intimate a treatment as fans could hope for, paying as much attention to the music in question as it does to the characters who made it
- Andrew Barker, Variety
The film serves both as a welcome document and reminder of the group in its prime, while also creating a portrait of lives still in motion, grown men trying to move on from yet respect the work of their younger selves.
- Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times


En anglais seulement BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST is a documentary film directed by Michael Rapaport about one of the most influential and groundbreaking musical groups in hip-hop history. Having released five gold and platinum selling albums within eight years, A Tribe Called Quest has been one of the most commercially successful and artistically significant musical groups in recent history, and regarded as iconic pioneers of hip hop.
