On a Quest

I never really thought about the name of the group, but of course if you do a documentary and have such a weird band name, that will be one of the things explored. While this was to be expected, seeing so many high profile musicians giving their insight on how Quest affected them or the music landscape overall, is quite interesting to say the least.

And all that by one of the whitest Dudes/actors on this planet. Michael Rappaport created this and he really did good. I would think through the friends he has, he had quite the connections to other artists. Nicely edited, with a coherent line to follow for anyone watching. This could have been an episode of the Netflix show that explores Hip Hop, but let's just see this as an added extra

You're going to wet your pants watching this if you're a huge Tribe fan.

You're going to wet your pants watching this if you're a huge Tribe fan. If you're just like me a regular hip-hop fan, it's eight, it's fun. You get a playful, frank, intimate look at their origins, their rise and fall, and the relationships between the members and, in particular, the tension between the brilliant, messianic, somewhat oblivious Q-Tip and the headstrong, straightforward, more humane and related Phife Dawg, whose close childhood friendship and complementary talents generate much of the band's energy and atmosphere, but w

An excellent look at the classic hip-hop group that is an excellent experience for any music fan.

"Beats, Rhymes, and Life" does a very good job of exploring A Tribe Called Quest's beginnings as well as it's influence, and is the type of music documentary that all others should look to when trying to tell an artist's story in a impactful and informative way, and it checks off all of the boxes that one should expect such a movie to go through, but it doesn't just cover the group as a whole- it covers all of the members personal lives in a good yet relevant way. The reason why it works better than many other films in this genre is that it covers the bands breakup and fallings out as those things are actually happening; not everything is current and not everything is in hindsight-it's a really healthy and good mix, and that's something I really admire it for. In addition to that, interviews from other musicians that've been impacted by the group's influence do a decent (albeit sometimes generic) job of informing the viewer on the impact the group has actually had. My biggest issue with this film is that it feels a little too long, and sometimes there are interviews that don't feel entirely necessary, and become a little boring and inflate the running time, when what I really want to see is more info from the actual members of the tribe. Overall, I really enjoyed this film and would easily recommend it. 7.4/10
