A documentary film about one of the most influential and groundbreaking musical groups in hip-hop history (A Tribe Called Quest released a number of gold and platinum selling albums within eight years). Michael Rapaport, so far only known as an actor sets out on a reunion tour with them in 2008, ten years after their sudden break-up, and captures the story of how tenuous their relationship has become; how their personal differences and unresolved conflicts continue to be a threat to their creative cohesion. This is a brutally honest revelation to the group's impact with commentary from De La Soul, Large Professor, Pete Rock, Busta Rhymes and the Beastie Boys.

In original language.
