Just Reel Film: Ice-T’s Debut Film ‘The Art Of Rap’ Now Available On DVD And Digital Download

Ice-T interviews Dr. Dre in his debut film ‘The Art Of Rap’

by Dorian Chandler, Your Black World

Ice-T is a hip-hop legend who began his career as a rapper in the 1980’s. His debut album Rhyme Pays was the first hip-hop album to carry an explicit content sticker. As one of the pioneers of the musical genre he’s understood the pulse and influence of hip-hop better than most.That level of understanding led Ice-T to direct his first film, Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.

Making its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and its theatrical release this past summer, Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap explores the history, evolution and influence of hip-hop throughout the years. Ice-T is a prominent figure in the film as he conducts candid interviews with rap heavyweights like Nas, KRS One, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Chuck D and Kanye West to name a few.

If you missed the films theatrical releases you can now buy the documentary on DVD or as a digital download on Itunes this week. Both will include bonus features not seen in the theaters. Check out these two outtake interviews where Ice-T finds out why Dr. Dre has some of the cleanest mixed records in hip-hop and how Q-Tip learned how to rap.
