See an Exclusive Clip From Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

The infighting surrounding Beats, Rhymes & Life — the Tribe Called Quest documentary directed by actor and superfan Michael Rapaport — has grown legendary, with emotional breakdowns at premieres, emphatic defenses, and the dramatic reveal of e-mail correspondence. The good news, though, is that with the movie opening on Friday, all that stuff is just about in the past, and we can finally re-focus on the actual product. So, to get yourself amped up for the release, here's an exclusive snippet from the movie, featuring Tribe's Jarobi White and Ali Shaheed Muhammad discussing the day Q-Tip decided to end the band. Dramatic!
