Watch: A Tribe Called Quest Documentary

I was a latecomer to the awesomeness of ATCQ, I found out about them after they went their separate ways. 10+ years later they released a new documentary (thank goodness it's not a reality show) which from the trailer and reviews is going to be amazing.

It's in limited theatrical release but look for it on DVD and Netflix in the near future.
