In 2008, when actor/director Michael Rapaport announced that he was making a documentary on the legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, we had one reaction: Finally!

Now the first trailer for the highly-anticipated 'Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest' has hit the internet, and it's gotten us even more hyped for the upcoming flick.

The two-and-a-half-minute clip features snippets of interviews with some of the biggest names in rap, as well as Tribe emcees Q-Tip and Phife Dawg.

"Myself, Kanye -- we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Tribe" says Pharrell Williams.

"Everything about that was magic" says Roots drummer ?uestlove.

"They completely mastered the form and culture of what hip-hop is supposed to be" added Ludacris.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer for the documentary.


Looks great, right? Unfortunately, the movie has recently hit some bumps in the road.

Earlier this year, Q-Tip tweeted his dismay over the film, saying that he did not support it. However, he later clarified that he was only upset about the editing of the movie and not the overall project. Either way, since the documentary debuted at Sundance, the reviews for the film have been very positive.
