SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP

Ice-T & Andy Baybutt, USA, 2012, Shout! Factory, Docs

“Poised to school a new generation of fans with insights from some of their favorite artists.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music, including Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Kool Moe Dee, and the list goes on. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds — and erupts from the lips — of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this art form that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers' insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps and freestyle rhymes straight from the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of an original American art form that brought a fresh form of poetry to a new generation.
