Milwaukee UP: Friday is filled with A Tribe Called Quest and few Bastards

Hip-hop fans have been hearing about A Tribe Called Quest's documentary by Michael Rapaport for a long time now, and slowly but surely it has been making the premier rounds around the country.

The documentary, called "Beats, Rhymes, and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest," is an award-winning film and an official Sundance Tribeca Film Festival pick.

ATCQ is one of the more influential groups when it comes to the sound of hip-hop and their discography contains several albums that are considered classic hip-hop albums.

"Beats, Rhymes, and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest" will debut in Milwaukee at the Oriental Theatre this Friday and is a must-see for any and all hip-hop fans. It is rated R for language, so parents and children alike, be advised.

Also, for those who weren't able to check it out, or didn't take the time to check it out, Dana Coppafeel and Reason – who are known as Know Flight Zone – are throwing a second release party for their album at Landmark Lanes this Friday. There is no cover charge for the show and festivities start at 10:30 p.m. The show is 21+.

Earlier this year, Coppafeel, as a part of his group KingHellBastard, released a tribute album to A Tribe Called Quest. So, if you decide to check out the ATCQ documentary, maybe take the time to walk a few feet from the Oriental to Landmark to check out the show.
