A Tribe Called Quest Documentary Wins At LA Film Festival

A Tribe Called Quest Documentary Wins At LA Film Festival

 

With all the drama behind the A Tribe Called Quest documentary it seems to be warmly accepted in the film community. Michael Rapaport’s documentary on the legendary Hip-Hop group won a prestigious award during the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 26.

The name of Rapaport’s documentary is Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest and the film took home the audience award for Best Documentary Feature during the film festival.

Group member Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest discussed his feelings about the documentary to MovieLine.com, during the screening.

“I have seen it before but each time I see it I see something different,” Ali Shaheed Muhammad said. “L.A. seemed to have a real cool mellow kind of cheer. I saw in New York and it was a little bit different, which is reminiscent of every time we step on stage; each city has its own reaction. It reminded me of the early days when we first came out.

Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest opened on July 8 with rave reviews.

Jay-Z To Begin Work On New Solo Album!!

Jay-Z To Begin Work On New Solo Album!!

 

Okay, so, sure we’re a little disappointed that Jay-Z and Kanye did NOT release their collaboration Watch The Throne this past July 4th, but some good news is keeping us a little distracted.

Jay has revealed that he’s been working on his TWELFTH solo album and has already recorded two new songs for the record. While working with ‘Ye on their album together, Jay says that he’s been inspired to do a follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2009 album, The Blueprint 3.

He says:

“I know exactly the tone and the whole feel of the album. I think when you experience creativity; you should get it out as much as possible.”

Meanwhile, Jay has also said that he and Kanye just recently had a private listening party for their new album so looks like a release date could be very, very close.

Jay-Z keeps coming with the albums and I have to say I have bought every one of them. He is an amazing artist and performer and keeps coming up with new ways to make us bump our heads & shake our asses!

DMX Jail Drama!

DMX  Jail Drama!

DMX just scored an extended stay in his Arizona prison after the rapper was allegedly caught with drugs behind bars … but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, DMX broke SEVERAL rules in Yuma state prison since January — including drug possession, failing or refusing a drug test, smoking when he wasn’t supposed to, being disrespectful, disruptive, and disorderly … the list goes on.

A rep for the prison wouldn’t specify what kind of drug officials found on the rapper.

All told, DMX had seven disciplinary infractions — and we’re told, he’ll be stuck in Yuma prison for AT LEAST another week … and possibly much longer.

I think it’s time he gets some serious help, and not the Celebrity Rehab kind. For someone who has been in jail over 9 times, do you think he will be able to make a comeback? It will be interesting to see how this saga continues….

Pimp C’s Widow Chinara Butler Speaks On Rap-A-Lot Records’ Lawsuit Against Her

Pimp C's Widow Chinara Butler Speaks On Rap-A-Lot Records' Lawsuit Against Her

Chinara Butler says she’s yet to receive any money from Rap-A-Lot Records, disapproves of them putting together an album with unreleased Pimp C music.

Houston’s Rap-A-Lot Records and Chinara Butler, the wife of the late rapper Chad “Pimp C” Butler, have found themselves in a seemingly never-ending battle over the rights to release Pimp C’s unreleased material.

The problems between Butler and Rap-A-Lot arose when Butler sent the record label a cease and desist letter demanding that they not use Pimp C’s music or name in an upcoming project. Rap-A-Lot fired back with a lawsuit of their own claiming that they own 10 of Pimp C’s master recordings and that Butler was wrongfully withholding them.

Butler recently spoke with AllHipHop.com and explained why she sent the cease and desist letter in the first place. She revealed that her main reason was that she didn’t approve of the label trying to do “something new” with Pimp C’s music.

“I want to make sure everyone understands that with those songs and my whole issue is that, I don’t feel like we should try to do something new with Chad’s music, if he didn’t do it,” Butler explained to AllHipHop.com. “To me its not right and clearly I’m not feeling it. Just like the songs, I’m not feeling a lot of the singles.”

Aside from disapproving of the music for Rap-A-Lot’s Pimp C project, Butler also shared that she’s yet to receive a single penny from the label.

“I’m being sued when you [Rap-A-Lot] are putting out a project and I haven’t even received any money or anything from? I will never amend anything,” said Butler. “This is about him [Pimp C.] and all I can do is make him proud and make sure no one tarnishes his legacy, and what he built his whole life…I just think its sad.”
