Every few years the voices of the past, present and future come together and speak to the people. This Year on June 15th 2012 The ICONS, INVENTORS and SUPER STARS of HIP HOP tell the world how they “Reinvented Everything” in the movie “Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap”. Look here for updates, reviews and news. This is a repost from the blog NoCommentMusic.
Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. 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.
Recognised as the Godfather of Gangsta Rap , Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performer’s insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard acapellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.
