Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest


  1. craig ronald marchinkoski

      not sure if i should spend the ten to see it now in the theatre or wait to download it later 

  2. Jackson Nieuwland

      Could have been better. What is covered is covered well but what was happening around the last two albums is largely ignored.

  3. Corey Zeller

      I think I just came…

      Fucking love them.  I used to listen to them every day…EVERY DAY….when I worked at a car wash one winter.

      “Back in the days when a teenager, before I had status and before I had a pager…”

  4. Roxane

      I am not that well versed in hip hop but I surely know Tribe. I love Q-tip so so so much.

  5. Corey Zeller

      they’re great….but no Wu Tang…consult “Shame on a Nigga”…probably my favorite rap song ever.

  6. Corey Zeller

      …and I just love rap.  When I get time, I’ll e-mail you a whole bunch of songs to look for.

      I just don’t like a lot of rap that has (and is) coming out of Atlanta (sorry Blake).

  7. craig ronald marchinkoski

      that’s like saying _arrested development_ is good but not as good as _the wire_. we call that crazy talk. wu-tang might make my favorite hip hop song of all time, as well. “da mystery of chessboxin” is beautiful. 

  8. Corey Zeller

      as beautiful as any song could ever be…

      and The Wire is epic…shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

      as a matter of fact, I’d argue that The Wire was the best show that has ever been on TV…even more so than other favorites of mine like The Sopranos, Deadwood, Twin Peeks, etc.

      The show is a greek tragedy…amazing!

      That last scene with Marlo on the street corner, wow!

  11. Scottmcclanahan

      I’ve been dying to see this.  

  12. Rachel Parks

      See it in a theater with good sound.  rock out. 

  13. Noellevida

      I didn’t really think it was necessary to explain every album.  It wasn’t a “Behind-the Music” special. 

  14. craig ronald marchinkoski

      prolly is probably the right choice.

  15. Jackson Nieuwland

      But so much interesting stuff was going on around those albums. I wanted to know about the additions of Consequence and Dilla to the group
