Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap (2012)
Monday 1st October 2012
Visually luscious and drenched with the big beats of classic cuts and freestyle rhyming by some of the masters of the music, Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap, released on DVD & Blu-ray by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment on 8th October 2012, is a performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop.
At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is Ice-T who with co-director Andy Baybutt takes us on a personal journey into the asphalt roots of the music that saved his life
This film is not about stardom, bling, or beef; it's about craft and skill - what goes on inside the minds and erupts from the pens of rap legends. Ice-T travels from coast to coast, engaging intimately with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Grandmaster Caz, Ice Cube, KRS-One, Nas, Run-DMC, Snoop Dogg and Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def. What emerges is a mighty soul tribute to the original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.
Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap is the definitive documentary on the creative process behind rap music, featuring unique and exclusive interviews and performances from the biggest names in the business. Produced by Paul Toogood for Art Of Rap Films Ltd / JolyGood Films in association with Westmount Films and Final Level Entertainment.
