Imagine my excitement when I heard that the legendary ATCQ were reuniting for a couple of shows a year back. Anytime a relevant band reunites, there’s always spark of hope in the deepest part of a music nerds soul that something long-term/music will come of said reunion.  Then add-on the excitement of hearing that someone was attempting to document their reunion as well as their Overall Story and amazing contribution to Hip Hop. From there, I didn’t hear much on said Documentary until seeing a preview for it on YouTube (that you can watch below). Even though its out of sync, it gives a nice glimpse inside the project… and the overall theme of the Documentary. I was nerding out. The nerding compounded itself when I found out that Michael Rapaport had the film had to Sundance and Cannes Film Festival.

Until… (because there’s always an until/but) it came out that Q-Tip has a problem with the film. Everything about the film apparently. I mean, you do see that there is still obvious tension inside the ATCQ camp in the preview of the documentary… as would be expected. But it looks like Tip has nothing to do with the documentary at this point, and wants the same of you as well. From Tip’s Twitter and RapRadar:

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 about the piece. The filmmaker should respect the band enough to honor our request regarding the film.

So here goes this. And I have no ideal what “this” is. I do suggest and implore Q-Tip clarify WTF is going on, so that everyone knows. For now, you can sit back, watch the Preview… and figure it out yourself.
