A Tribe Called Quest Documentary Wins Producer's Guild Award

Michael Rapaport's flick about the Tribe won big at this year's Producers Guild Awards.

January is winding down, and with the Golden Globes being last week, the entertainment industry is in the full swing of awards season. Now, one of Hip Hop's own took home a major win this weekend when the A Tribe Called Quest documentary Beats, Rhyme and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest was honored at the Producer's Guild of America Awards.

According to The Wrap, actor Michael Rapaport's documentary about the legendary Native Tongues trio took home the Best Documentary award at the Producer's Guild of America Awards. The awards honor the producers who produce and execute the best film and television programs of the year.

Beats, Rhymes and Life, which was released this past summer, garnered critical acclaim from Hip Hop fans and film critics alike. Although the PGA is the first award the film has yet to receive, reports indicate that the film is on the shortlist for the Academy Awards Best Feature Length Documentary.
