NY Magazine: Michael Rapaport on All the Drama Surrounding His A Tribe Called Quest Documentary

29 Apr

Yesterday I came across across a really great Q&A interview online from New York Magazine with Michael Rapaport in regards to his documentary on A Tribe Called Quest. I remember when I first heard about this documentary I was so excited and then I quickly learned of all the drama and bickering going back and forth right around Sundance.  Below is an excerpt from the interview which took place during the Tribeca Film Festival and click HERE to read the whole thing.

(via New York Magazine)

You came into this as a fan. Are you less of a fan?
I love the group; I still love the music; I still get off on the music. I will not be the director of A Tribe Called Quest documentary, part two. This conflict has definitely changed my perception of them as individuals, but the music is the music.

Do they have control over the soundtrack?
Yeah, the soundtrack is their domain. They have control over it. And at this point, up until now, they have chosen not to do anything with the soundtrack.

And what was the question that you wanted to answer by doing the movie?
The question that I wanted to answer by doing the movie was, “Will A Tribe Called Quest make more music?” And I think we got our answer because there’s no soundtrack. But it’s not too late yet.

Because you haven’t released the movie yet.
We’ve got release in July, and what better way to go off into the sunset, to make one original song for your documentary? And to see A Tribe Called Quest at the fucking Oscars performing a brand-new song — that would be crazy for hip-hop. They could write the song for me. I’ll perform the shit myself. If they write the song, I’ll do it. I’ll hire look-alikes to do it.
