Soundcrash & The Doctor’s Orders are proud to present the UK premiere of ‘Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest’, Michael Rapaport’s award winning film documenting the highs and lows of Hip Hop’s Golden Era’s most celebrated group A Tribe Called Quest. Featuring an original soundtrack by Madlib and including humorous & insightful interviews with the likes of ?uestlove, De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Pharrell Williamsm Adam Horowitz and Mary J Blige as well as extensive accounts from Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jarobi White and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, never has the story of A Tribe Called Quest been better told. The screening will be followed by an exclusive live show by original Tribesman Phife Dawg featuring ATCQ classics from ‘Peoples Instinctive Travels’, ‘Midnight Marauders’, ‘Low End Theory’, ‘Beats, Rhymes & Life’ as well as new material.

An essential night for A Tribe Called Quest enthusiasts and music lovers in general.

Film synopsis:
As Beats, Rhymes & Life begins, the rappers who anchored pioneering group A Tribe Called Quest are already going their separate ways. As youths in the mid-’80s, the Queens-born foursome of Tribe—Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White—found success with their exhuberant exploration and combination of hip hop, pop and jazz. But in recent years, Q-Tip, the band’s visionary and reluctant pop star, has tired of the street-bred capriciousness of his lyrical partner Phife, who is equally frustrated with Q-Tip. How these two friends and musical partners got to this state forms the guts of actor-turned-filmmaker Michael Rapaport’s candid and combustible documentary.

Film trailer:

Full Cast:
Mary J Blige / Common / Mike D / Phife Dawg / De La Soul / Mos Def / Adam Horowitz / Ghostface Killah / Ludacris / Angie Martinez / Ali Shaheed Muhammad / Q-Tip / Michael Rapaport / Pete Rock / ?uestlove / Jarobi White / Pharrell Williams / Adam Yauch

[London] ELZHI with Live Band Plus Yungun, Mr Thing & Spin Doctor – Thurs 3rd November @ Jazz Cafe

[London] ELZHI with Live Band Plus Yungun, Mr Thing & Spin Doctor – Thurs 3rd November @ Jazz Cafe

Facebook event:

7pm-11pm Thursday 3rd November 2011
Tickets £15 in advance

Before the world ever heard the name ELZHI the young artist was sitting in the back of classrooms thinking of rhymes, spitting verses while his friend banged out beats on desks. He sharpened every blade in his arsenal, developing his style to measure up against the competition in Maurice Malone’s Hip Hop Shop, the legendary proving ground for Detroit artists that produced some of the greatest emcees in the world.

ELZHI spent years paying dues, writing songs, entering battles, and recording demos until he finally made his international debut on “Come and Get It,” a standout track from J-Dilla’s ‘Welcome 2 Detroit’. The acclaimed song drew massive attention to the mysterious artist, and made his unfinished EP, Out of Focus, a highly sought after

ELZHI fuelled this buzz by joining Slum Village in 2001 elevating the crew’s reputation, and allowing him to reach new levels of lyricism. He recorded multiple albums with his former group, selling hundreds of thousands of records, and touring the world.

In 2004, ELZHI released ‘Witness My Growth’, a two disc mixtape featuring many of his lost or unfinished solo songs, which has come to be considered an underground classic. Upon his returning form his first solo tour he promptly released the ‘The Preface’, his solo debut on Fat Beats Records. The album helped to solidify his
reputation as one of the most inventive lyricists in the world, earning acclaim from legendary artists and fans alike. In 2009, responding to the demands of his passionate fan base, ELZHI released The ‘Leftovers’ mixtape, a collection of rare tracks and unreleased exclusives featuring the hit single “Deep.”

In 2010, no longer content with being “your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper,” ELZHI got down to business. Moving past the relationship with his former group, ELZHI has reinvented himself as a solo artist and reignited his early buzz. This year, he released ‘ElMatic’, a homage to Nas’s classic debut, ‘ILLmatic’. A labor of love
that set the internet alight, the project finds the Detroit emcee creating new songs out of Nas’s originals while rapping over the Will Sessions Band’s interpretation of the original beats.

Tonight he hits the stage alongside his live band to treat The Doctor’s Orders heads to another incredible performance of his work including the ‘Out Of Focus’ EP which is now finally available for download exclusively through

As ever Spin Doctor will be warming things up with his usual blend of soulful sounds and tonight he is joined by The Doctor’s Orders regulars Yungun & Mr Thing performing live on stage.
