Do we even have to tell you how how vital, important and mostly, great A Tribe Called Quest were? If we do, you need to get schooled son, but for the rest of you a documentary is on the way about legendary hip hop group, and trust us, it's essential.

Do we even have to tell you how how vital, important and mostly, great A Tribe Called Quest were? If we do, you need to get schooled son, but for the rest of you a documentary is on the way about legendary hip hop group, and trust us, it's essential.

Directed by Michael Rapaport,"Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest" is a warts and all look at the group with input from those inside and outside band. We caught the film at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier in the year and said it was "vibrant, full of life, pain, tears and heart." The film covers a lot of ground including the band’s early days, their reunion, internal conflict, Phife’s illness as well as the requisite talking head commentary. And is it just us, or does that loop for "Can I Kick It" still raise goosebumps?

"Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest" will hit theaters on July 8th, Check out the trailer below.
