Of course, the soundtrack is banging, whether a die-hard fan or novice. The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year before schooling audiences on the fine line between fame and friendship at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in April. It makes you appreciate A Tribe Called Quest for diving into the mix with gusto and depth, clearing the way for a fresh approach to hip hop music and philosophy. Check it ….
