Tip finally expresses his beef with the Michael Rapaport-directed documentary Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, which premiered at Sundance in January.

According to Q-Tip, on December 17, 2010, a couple of weeks after he initially expressed concern about the film, an e-mail was accidentally sent to him by one of the producers that read as follows: “First off let’s close the Billing Block and put it on the poster so they can’t get on that. Then we’ll f— them on everything else.”

Well, damn.
