We were first teased with a trailer back in March of 2011 for Ice-T’s the Art of Rap. Now, it’s finally about to be here with an advertised June 2012 release date. Hip Hop culture lovers will be pleased to see the cast of the film and can form a good idea of the type of content it will contain. Many comments the trailer has received have been positive with some even pinning their hopes on the film helping to put Hip Hop back on course, steering it away from the direction it has taken. Do you think Ice-T’s Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap can be that significant?
Much respect to Ice-T. This is definitely something a lot of us have been waiting for.
“SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a feature length performance documentary film about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film’s director and interviewer Ice-T.

Along the way Ice-T meets some of the remarkable superstars of Rap, from Eminem to Dr Dre, to Snoop Dogg and Kanye West. He exposes the roots and history of Rap and then, through meeting most of it’s most famous protagonists studies the living mechanism of the music to reveal The Art Of Rap. This film features unique performances from it’s entire cast and does not use any archive material.”
