I think the first time I heard a Tribe Called Quest, I was in my house playing Nintendo (8-bit) Blades of Steel one Sunday night and I heard the festive guitar intro of "I Lost My Wallet in El Segundo". The following beats and rhymes culminated in a dizzying story of a friends traveling across the country to have some fun in the sun. The voice I'd heard before on songs with Jungle Brothers and De La Soul was this time alone in his rant. Q-Tip (Q-Tip) from a Tribe Called Quest made his movement known.
Now that 20 years has passed, hip-hop actor, Michael Rappaport is embarking on his own journey to document People's instinctive travels in the paths of rhythm with a film about A Tribe Called Quest.
