In the late 1980s, fresh-faced and straight out of high school, New York-bred A Tribe Called Quest formed and set about transforming the face of hip hop. Their innovative style would lead them to no fewer than five gold and platinum-selling albums and leave them regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop. Beats, Rhymes and Life explores the history and methods of the group throughout their existence. Beginning on their 2008 reunion tour, we see what 20 years can do to childhood relationships when music, ego and creativity become involved. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Music and Film Festival.
