ATCQ’s Beats, Rhymes & Life up for Documentary Of The Year at Producer’s Guild Awards | News

The Producer’s Guild of America (PGA) has announced the highly acclaimed Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest directed by Michael Rapaport, as one of five documentaries nominated for their Best Documentary award for 2012.

The film was not included by the Academy in their 15 film shortlist of documentaries nominated for the 2012 Oscars, but despite the backlash from the Hip-Hop community for the Academy’s snub of the film the nomination is a massive achievement for hip hop and sits in good company with other nominated documentaries including Bill Cunningham New York, Project Nim, Senna, and, The Union.

The winners will be announced and awarded on January 21 2012.
