Michael Rapaport has really sweetened his life in Hollywood. I've been watching movies he's co-starred in since junior high. It wasn't until he headlined in the really underrated dark comedy SPECIAL that he showed the world the talent he carries.

That wasn't enough for Rapaport as this year he premiered his directorial debut, the documentary BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST, at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. No stranger to the hip hop community, Rapaport has worked on albums with Talib Kwali and the High & Mighty, and has appeared in numerous music videos.

Check out the video interview after the break, where we chat about all things BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE, including the pressures of making a faithful documentary about the four guys in A Tribe Called Quest who've been through a lot together.
