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. Taking us on a deeply personal journey Ice-T uncovers how this music of the street has grown to dominate the world. Along the way Ice-T meets a whole spectrum of Hip-Hop talent, from founders, to new faces, to the global superstars like Eminem, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West. He exposes the roots and history of Rap and then, through meeting many of its most famous protagonists, studies the living mechanism of the music to reveal 'The Art Of Rap'. This extraordinary film features unique performances from the entire cast, without resorting to archive material, to build a fresh and surprising take on the phenomenon that is Rap.

Dublin date's.

Current mood:
Was at it earlier. The sound was great on it but there was a bulb issue in the Swan center so the picture was not 100%, should be getting some kinda refund or something.
Anyway, some sick tight raps on it. I'd say the DVD will be jammed with more interviews and stuff, I felt the movie tried to cover too much in too little time. Like most people on it got about 5 mins or less and that included a snippet of one of their tracks and a fly over of their city.
Good work by Ice though, the Q&A was entertaining but not really informative. The live performances at the end a nice ending.

Was the Q&A a pre recorded one or actually a live stream one?

They're showing it for a while in IFI anyway.

It's pretty damn good. All the people they brought in for it, really bring it. There was nobody on the whole thing that I thought was crap.

Probably cut it down for a tv version. It has 106 mins as the running time on IMDB.
