Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are going from The Wolf of Wall Street to A Tribe Called Quest. The Laurel and Hardy of Quaalude addicts have partnered with rapper Q-Tip on what Deadline calls a “hip-hop drama series” based on the Abstract’s experience during the Native Tongue era. Commence buggin’ out.
There is no writer yet for the drama project, which will be produced through DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way and is expected to be taken out to networks next week…The drama project will draw from Q-Tip’s experiences with the Native Tongues collective that A Tribe Called Quest was a member of.

I could watch an entire show about Busta’s outfit when Tribe and Leaders of the New School appeared on Arsenio in 1992, so needless to say, I’m very excited for this project, assuming Jonah leaves the teeth at home.
