A while back, I mentioned that actor Michael Rappaport was filming a documentary called "Beats, Rhymes & Life" on the iconic rap group A Tribe Called Quest. During that time, the film garnered some controversy due to the group's unhappiness with the film and its director. After the controversy settled, the film finally found distribution through Sony Picture Classics, and will be shown in Milwaukee at The Oriental in July. Now the official trailer for "Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest" has been released and you check it out below. The trailer features cameos from Questlove, Ludacris, Pharrell, and others. The film has been getting rave reviews even with the early controversy.
