Shoot All Rappers
July 7, 2011
Hip Hop and skateboarding share many similarities. They are both heavily influenced by the streets, they both started as small subcultures that became big, and both are considered a way of life. It's no wonder that hip hop has been featured on the soundtracks of so many skate videos over the years. A Tribe Called Quest is one of the most influential groups of all time and the telling of their story is long overdue. This is why Michael Rapaport chose them as the subject of his new documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest. Being a native New Yorker that grew up in the midst of the culture, Michael felt it was necessary to pay homage to these pioneers with his directorial debut. We wanted to tell Michael's story by putting a spin on one of our most popular segments. Shoot All Rappers with actor / director Michael Rapaport. Enjoy.
