    After his brief Twitter tantrum, Q-Tip is explaining why he doesn’t support a film about his group.
     
    Q’s not salty about the Beats, Rhymes & Life because it might show some unflattering footage of A Tribe Called Quest. He’s just concerned that it’s not showing a comprehensive picture of the iconic rap group.
     
    “Different things need to be done edit-wise. The sentiment of the film is there, 80 percent is there, it’s just not done," Q told Sirius suggesting that director Michael Rapaport is trying to hurry production along.  "It’s not done yet… It’s just that simple.”
     
    As it stands, Beats, Rhymes & Life is slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next year. The rapper just wants to make sure that when the documentary makes its big debut, that it is a finished project—and he’s not just speaking for himself.


     
    “People automatically assume I’m speaking just as the subject, that I’m not supporting it ’cause I ain’t like it,” Q-Tip said. “I’m a producer on the film, Tribe is a producer on the film. I’m speaking for the whole group.”
