Nitehawk honors the life of Phife Dawg with special midnite screenings of Michael Rapaport’s documentary BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST.
Having forged a 20-year run as one of the most innovative and influential hip hop bands of all time, the Queens NY collective known as A TRIBE CALLED QUEST have kept a generation hungry for more of their groundbreaking music since their much publicized breakup in 1998. Acclaimed actor Michael Rapaport documents the inner workings and behind the scenes drama that follows the band to this day, and explores what’s next for what many claim are the pioneers of alternative rap in his feature directorial debut, BEATS RHYMES & LIFE: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.
