|02.13.21||Internet|| I've fallen into a habit over the last couple of years of doubling my video game time with youtube videos or podcasts on the second monitor. As good as the Red Dead 2 score is, you can't do 70 hours of hunting without it getting a little dry. So I try to have a puzzle game or chill game that I can play with the music off so I can also consume a Sopranos podcast or live-play DnD like Critical Role. Well, over the past couple days, I've meandered onto a series of talks, mostly by Red Bull Music Academy, with people like Madlib, Questlove, El-P, Q-Tip, and Bob Power. Aside from all of them revering J Dilla, it got me thinking that I should really do a deep dive on groups like Tribe and De La, which I've enjoyed on a casual level but am not intimately familiar with their whole oeuvre. This popped into my head shortly thereafter.|
This is a good doc. Feels like we get intimate access but also a good encapsulation of Tribe's story. It's interesting watching this in 2021 knowing that they would get back together for one more album before Phife's passing... maybe provides a safety net that wasn't there in 2011. Hmm... not sure what else to say because it's late, so... i liked it! I'll probably hit up their records one by one sometime and get a deep dive.
