It also showcases ongoing tensions between the members of ATCQ, and former frontman Q-Tip has tweeted his displeasure with the way the band is portrayed.
"I am not in support of the A Tribe Called Quest documentary," Tip tweeted Thursday. "The filmmaker should respect the band to the point of honoring the few requests that's was made abt the piece."
Beats, Rhymes & Fights, directed by actor Michael Rapaport, is set to premiere prior to the Sundance Film Festival.
