“The reality of the situation is individually they all have different perspectives. Phife chose to come here and the other guys are not here. And they missed out”
Michael Rappaport’s long delayed, sometimes controversial documentary on A Tribe Called Quest debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend, but with the exception of Phife, the group was a no-show. In the clip above, Rappaport explains his dissapointment to MTV.
On the night of the premier, Tribe sent out the following statement:
Thanks to our fans for their support through the years and for the enthusiasm around the documentary. We hope that the film’s perspective conveys our love of hip-hop culture. We could not attend Sundance, but we want to express our love and appreciation for the support that we have received in advance of the film’s premiere tonight. We hope that it is well received. Thank you.
I don’t know man, I just want to see the shit.
