Hot on the heels of their first event – a packed screening of Spike Lee’s DO THE RIGHT THING – film blog Permanent Plastic Helmet is delighted to announce a rare screening of Michael Rapaport’s brilliant documentary about the hip-hop legends.
Best known for songs like “Bonita Applebaum” and “Can I Kick It?”, and classic albums like “Midnight Marauders” and “The Low-End Theory”, the influential Queens-based group, alongside the likes of De La Soul, pioneered a jazzier, sunnier sound at a time when Gangsta rap was in the ascendancy. Their 1998 break-up shocked the industry, and this film picks up with Tribe in 2008, when they reunited to perform sold-out concerts across the country. It wasn’t all plain sailing…
This all-access film focuses on the inner workings, personal relationships and behind the scenes drama that defines the band. No stone is left unturned, with a host of musical legends (including Kanye West, Common and Mos Def) on hand to pay tribute. You won’t need to be a die-hard hip-hop head to enjoy this revealing, funny and finally very moving film.
On the night, there will be drinks and classic hip-hop in the bar, food, and a prize giveaway.
