RAP CULTURE: SOMETHING FROM NOTHING - THE ART OF RAP (DOCUMENTARY FILM)


We can't wait for this to be released! The truth be told about it now

SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a feature length performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film's director and interviewer Ice-T.

According to Billboard, Ice-T has enlisted 50 different legend emcees, including Eminem, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Common, Nas and many others, to discuss the science behind their lyrical craft. He said that the current influence of pop music in Hip Hop led him to want to make a film discussing the serious art of rhyming.

"I've interviewed 50 emcees - everybody - [from] Kanye West, Ice Cube, Eminem to Melle Mell, Grandmaster Caz," explained Ice. "The Hip Hop scene [has] bec[o]me so pop. I was like, 'I'm gonna do a movie about real rappers and what inspired us.' Maybe that'll hit a reset button on the game and let these kids know it's not just about a pop record. Rap can do a lot."


The Art of Rap
also features powerful appearances from rap veterans and originators like Ice Cube, Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz and Immortal Technique. A trailer for the film can be seen below.
