The Hip Hop Documentary: Ice T & A Tribe Called Quest
was released in 2011. Directed by actor Michael Rapaport, I found this to be a solid story of the journey of Tribe from their beginnings in Queens, NY--and very informative about the details of their coming together...and near falling apart as of late.
Tough to see Phife battle his issues with diabetes, but heartwarming when his wife stepped in to give him her kidney. Again, a part of the story I never would have known...but it makes the essence of the group and what they represent to hip hop culture as a whole that much more powerful.
