Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest (2011)

During Amsterdam Dance Event LAB111 presents a selection of thought-provoking documentaries and movies about, featuring or made by inspiring musicians from the (electronic) music scene.

A Tribe Called Quest, a hip hop group that is representative of the increasing popularity of this musical style in the Western music culture of the noughties. In 1985, the four friends from Queens, New York were still high school students who were crazy about hip hop; five years later, they had world fame. Their story runs parallel to the history of the hip hop genre itself and also embodies its reinvention. Together with De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers - all part of a loose cluster known as Native Tongues - A Tribe brought innovation through their inclusive worldview, lyrical development, creative production and playful artfulness in the world of hip hop that often takes itself too seriously.
