Q-Tip Against ATCQ Documentary

A few days ago, a rough trailer of actor Michael Rapaport’s A Tribe Called Quest documentary leaked online. The film is set to debut at the Sundance Film Festival next year, but don’t expect to see Q-Tip there. This afternoon via his Twitter account, he said he’s no longer showing his support for the film.

I am not in support of the a tribe called quest documentary. The filmmaker should respect the band to the point of honoring the few requests that’s was made abt the piece. The filmmaker shld respect the band enough to honor our request regarding the the film

  • Wow

    Just sue him tip. You gotta eat somehow

  • toad3527

    why should the film maker respect tribe? he is a filmaker making a piece of art and he should do what he wants, not what tip wants

  • toad3527

    oh, and he cannot “sue” them. its an unofficial documentary about public figures. i can go make a documentary on anyone as long as they are considered public figures.

  • Belize

    On brother. I think it’s important for people to understand a Tribe Called Quest’s music and influence on hip-hop.

  • Chris

    @Tim Lee VA Stand Up:

    What is your deal, Tim? Your comment makes you sound like a complete and utter tool.

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    @ CHRIS

    YOU AND Q TIP SHOULD TOUCH EACH OTHER’S CUNT MUSCLES AND CALL IT A DAY.

    @Tim Lee VA Stand Up:

    Haha! What a loser. Clearly you know next to nothing about Hip Hop. Have fun on the short bus dude.

    @ Chris

    Short Bus??

    Im a Virginia Tech graduate……my degree next to your high school diploma (..and thats even debatable) probably looks pretty good….

  • rrahha

    what were the requests tip? Hip hop needs these sort of “reminders” for the younger kids growing up and those of us that lived and grew up listening to it….RESPECT THE ARCHITECTS!!!!

  • Chris

    @ Tim the Inbreed:

    If you’re a VT grad, you should know the difference between “YOUR” and “YOU’RE” (hence, the short bus comment). That, and only someone with the mental capability of three year-old would think your weak ass insults are relevant (or even funny).

    Also, why do you assume I don’t have a high school diploma? I have a BSBA from the University of Pittsburgh, thanks.

    P.S. – QTip is a legend and literally helped shape hip hop as we know it. Have respect.

  • alvin westchester

    I GOT ALL TYPES OF DEGREES AND SHIT OUT THIS MUH FUCKA

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    minor grammatical errors…..yeah no one ever does that. GOOD CATCH

    And of course my insults aren’t relevant to you (or funny) so I’m sorry YOUR humor doesn’t meet with mine. And stop acting like Q-Tip changed the game single handedly or something, which he most certainly didn’t, so jump off it Mr. “BSBA”.

    Fucking devils want profit from Black Culture thats sad.

  • flylib

    TIP is mad because he gave him exclusive access behind the scenes for the last few years
    had camera crews following him around
    people need to stop talking about stuff they don’t know about

  • SAYNOMORE

    FUCK Q-TIP, HE AIN’T MADE SHIT HOT IN AGES!!! LAST GOOD ALBUM TRIBE PUT OUT WAS MIDNIGHT MARAUDERS, AFTER THAT, IT WAS ALL DOWNHILL!!!

  • The trailer showed some sort of altercation between Tip and Phife…lack of support might involve the inclusion of that footage

  • B. Digital

    Michael Rappaport has every right to release the film as long as he states that it is an unauthorized documentary. But if I was in his shoes I wouldn’t release it just out of respect for ATCQ.

  • brendon Soto aka Vampire xtc

    The Documentary was Nas idea and he is the producer so blame Nas not Michael Rapaport

    Btw I love you Jay Z

    GUESS HE AINT WANNA LOOK BAD

  • Dave

    Actually Phife, Jarobi, and Ali Shaheed came out today and said they are not supporting it either. Ali Shaheed said they asked for a few things not to be in the documentary, and it was not respected. Somethings was supose to be off the records, but people kept filming anyway.

  • Nice to see Chris and Tim quit their lover’s quarrel….

    now back to the real Hip Hop commentary. Being that ATCQ was one of the groups that fans had mad respect for, there really wasn’t an explanation of what really happened to them as a group. Tip got no steam for his solo career after the breakup even though he had mad support from the Zulu Nation, Janet Jackson and others, (which kindof shows that it was the group as a whole that may history and it was not just about Tips lyircs.) Reunion shows and recordings were rumored but never came about. So for Tip to turn around and say he’s not in support of this movie makes me believe that He may have been the reason for the break up. I need to see this film, this film needs to be shown. There’s a lot of the future generations running into ATCQ’s old albums and loving it but don’t understand why they or the sound doesn’t exist anymore. Whether or not Tip’s “being a bitch” is yet to be seen, maybe it’s documented in the film. Over all, him making a statement about NOT SUPPORTING the film will only make a bunch of folks wanna check it out even more.

    “What kinda shit is this.. I think its an important film for people to see.. Whats the problem..”

    “YOUR SUCH A FUCKING LITTLE FAGGOTY BITCH Q TIP YOU WERE THE WORST ONE OUT OF THE GROUP SO FUCK OFF……YOUR LUCKY THIS TALENTED ACTOR THOUGHT ENOUGH OF YOU TO MAKE THIS FUCKING DOCUMENTARY YOU LITTLE BRATTY BITCH….
    FUCK YOU Q TIP, FAGGOT BITCH.”

    Yeah…comments like these are the exact reason why the hip hop genre wont progress any further. If a film maker VIOLATES the group he’s documenting, who the hell are you to DEMAND anything? I mean seriously? You mean to tell me, mike rappaport is at fault and all you can do is get online and talk shit about q tip? Fans have become complete idiots! You just want it ALL with no thought behind what your asking for! Internet made NOBODYS feel soooo entitled…
    cant wait for this whole internet thing to take a new direction cause all the hiding out opinionating with an attitude is fuckin disgusting…
    Then you have the media who is COMPLETLY reactive, not proactive…they support and fuel WHATEVER the trend or sentiment is in hip hop. Then you got the kinda guys…er “fans”… who follow you just to say “fuck you I hate you your overrated”!? The media turns around and ask the question “is( )overrated?” poll and everything! They dont defend SHIT! A legend or not! They do this with classic albums, legendary MCs, beef, WHATEVER to keep hip hop on its ass…
    then YOU the dumb “fan”…you fall for it… like the fool you are…
    This shit NEVER happens in rock, they say guns n roses is on tour, rolling stones etc maybe a few jokes but it doesnt become the MOOD for the entire genre and its fans!! cmon!! blink 182 isnt trying to shit on KISS cause theyre too old!!
    Half of u never had to respect anything in life so respecting MUSIC isnt even realistic to you!
    Half of you dont even recognize that hip hop is a way of LIFE not some 20minute trend like the media teaches you…then again if your some peckerwood in the middle of the burbs you could care less! right? thats the american story so why would it end at…hip hop…?
    just know that if LYRICS became the “thing” the industry would be all in…feet 1st…just a thought…
    who cares if u didnt like my rant…
