A little late on this, as I seen it was released in 2010. Caught a couple of trailers back before it came out but never followed up on the release. It turned out to be a pretty cool documentary.
The film features the participation of the late Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, DJ Premier, Nas, Mos Def, Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman, Adbusters Foundation’s Kalle Lasn, Talib Kweli, STS9, Tucker Carlson and experts on media, pop culture, and education.
Roll one & Enjoy!
Q-Tip is one of hip hop’s greatest MCs and producers. As a member of A Tribe Called Quest, he helped to shape the sound of hip hop throughout the ’90s. The group’s exceptional run of full-lengths became a blueprint for MCs looking to balance the literate and the absurd, as well as producers searching for the perfect (and unexpected) break—Tribe’s influence is pretty much unmatched in hip hop circles. Since Tribe’s split in 1998, Q-Tip has kept busy with a solo career that has included four albums as well as countless productions and guest appearances in places both expected (Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, and Jay-Z) and improbable (Chemical Brothers, R.E.M.). He has also honed his DJ chops, spinning regularly in New York City and beyond.
