It’s always interesting to see what an actor will choose for their first film to direct. Some pick blockbusters, other pick small personal films to make. Michael Rapaport has opted to give real life a little bit of the reel life by looking at one of the most influential bands in hip-hop, A Tribe Called Quest, with Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest
Plot Summary: Having forged a 20-year run as one of the most innovative and influential hip hop bands of all time, the Queens NY collective known as A TRIBE CALLED QUEST have kept a generation hungry for more of their groundbreaking music since their much publicized breakup in 1998.
Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest will be released in New York and Los Angeles by Sony Classics on July 8.
