After the official trailer surfaced on YouTube last December (and was subsequently taken down), another clip from the upcoming Beats, Rhymes and Life documentary on A Tribe Called Quest has made its way onto the internet. While the trailer, which can still be found in low quality on Vimeo, lasts for nearly five minutes, this clip spans for only one. However, it touches on the substantial subject of what went into combating the pressure involved with making the group’s sophomore album, The Low End Theory. The documentary made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival at the end of this month. As far as the controversy between the group and the film’s director, Michael Rapaport, it seems to remain. But according to MissInfo, there is still something great for fans to gain from seeing the film:

I had a chance to see it in a small screening at the Soho House a few months ago, and despite some rhetoric online…I think it’s unfair to jump to judgment about the film without seeing it first. As a Tribe fan, I didn’t walk away with the sense that any of the members are discredited or their character has been defamed. I just get an overwhelming nostalgia for the excitement of ATCQ’s heyday… I think fans will gain more from just admiring what moved them then, and pushing that along.

For more information on the film, visit its official website.
