Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest

Thank you, Michael Rappaport!  I thoroughly enjoyed Beats, Rhymes & Life (the movie…definitely not my favorite Tribe album).  I could’ve watched this movie and probably any documentary about 90′s hip-hop all day long.  The movie is interesting, entertaining, funny, sad, and seemingly honest.  The music is great, and I loved all of the concert footage.  It brought me back to a time and place of which I have nothing but the best memories.  I moved to NYC in 1994, and that was definitely the time and definitely the place.

I also finally watched Wasteland which had been sitting in my instant Netflix queue for way too long.  Excellent, excellent, excellent.  Really inspirational, emotional, and a great story all around.  A beautiful combination of art, environmentalism, humanity, and friendship.

I loved these movies for different reasons, but some of the same as well.  They’re both just plain good, so see them both if you haven’t already.
