Though this mini-documentary about Watch The Throne is mostly promotional fluff, there is some very cool footage of young KanYe, as well as footage of HOV and KanYe working on the album in Australia. The benefits of making this album are certainly mutual, but Watch The Throne is the pinnacle for Ye; a dream come true. Watch The Throne is expected to drop digitally on August 1st. [Via]

Finally hitting theaters this weekend (if your lucky enough to live in NY or LA) is the highly anticipated documentary Beats, Rhymes and Life, honoring the legacy of A Tribe Called Quest. Not to say we arrived here smoothly, the production and subsequent release of this doc experienced its fair share of controversy. Upon viewing the first edit, Tribe’s members were disappointed with director Michael Rapaport, who made the explosive drama between Phife Dawg and Q-Tip a too-big part of the story.
Rapaport screened the movie at Sundance anyway,with the support from Phife (and only Phife). Now the movie is finally prepped for public consumption and will be gradually premiered in cities across the country throughout the summer. Despite the drama, Tip still commends Rapaport and encourages everyone to see the movie.
Head over to Vulture for a minute-long clip from the movie, where Jarobi and Ali retell the story of Q-Tip deciding to break up the band.
