VIDEO: Beats, Rhymes & Fights: The History of A Tribe Called Quest

UPDATE, again: Let’s see how long the vid lasts this time…

UPDATE: The vid was here, I swear, but was removed. Will post as soon as (if?) it returns. Rap Radar with the save.

Since A Tribe Called Quest is  arguably easily one of Hip-Hop’s most influential groups,  Beats, Rhymes and Fights is a must see. By the trailer it looks like it’s not going to a sugarcoated affair either. Native Tongue devotee rejoice. Put together by NYC native and actor Micheal Rapaport aka Remy from Higher Learning and whatever his name was in Zebrahead. [Props to Potholes In My Blog via Nah Right]

DOWNLOAD: Roc Marciano, X.O. and Tranquil “Helpless Dreamer”

The Mello Music Group, which features acts like Oddisee and Georgia Ann Muldrow, is dropping a compilation called Helpless Dreamer. The title track features the production of Apollo Brown and most importantly—no disrespect, at all, son got beats and rhymes—features Roc Marciano. Rappers X.O. (Diamond District) and Tranquil also drop verses and don’t slouch. Win.

Download “Helpless Dreamer” (Mediafire), but surely they want you to cop it here, too.
