Movie Review (Synopsis):
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.
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. Recognized 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 performers’ insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas 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.
Tracy Lauren Marrow, better known as Ice-T has put together a documentary that shows the world the grass roots of rap and hip hop. The biggest names in the game yesterday, today and tomorrow all do their part in explaining how their own paths have evolved and how the culture has become what it is today. Eminem, Nas, Kanye West and Snoop Dog are only a portion of the artists that share their opinions in this movie.
Immediately separating rap from hip-hop as rap being the music and hip-hop being the overall culture, Ice walks the real streets, narrating a cross-country journey delving into the individual process used to craft flows technically and artistically. First traveling to the birthplace of hip-hop, NYC (starting in The Bronx- my hometown), onto Detroit and back to LA (noticeably missing the South), Ice profiles several legends who freestyle and break down their techniques, making you as a viewer feel a part of the conversation with Ice and the artist. It’s daunting to think there are over 35 artists in this film that’s over two hours long. My favorite clips were from Rakim (describing how you smell the grass when Slick Rick raps about a park), Chuck D from Public Enemy (discussing the importance of a strong voice on a song), KRS-One (describing the evolution of dozens) Eminem (seeing rhymes like puzzles) and Yasiin Bey’s (viewing rap as folk and tribal music).
Indiewire caught the world premiere in Park City at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and we can report it’s quite the blast; a surefire crowd-pleaser for fans of the genre. Featuring appearances by Grandmaster Caz, Mos Def, Eminem, Nas, Chuck D, Kanye West, Ice Cube, Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre and more, “The Art of Rap” (co-directed by Andy Baybutt) is full of great music, freestyle rhyming and surprising reveals from the biggest masters in the game.
The film’s format is straightforward: On camera, Ice-T interviews rappers in studio or on street corners, exploring their musical inspirations and the impetus behind some of their best-known tracks, with a short a cappella rap accompanying the exchange. As several rappers note, the genre’s roots in jazz, blues and soul inspired a younger generation of musicians to adapt these forms for a new style of urban music. “Hip-hop didn’t invent anything,” observes Grandmaster Caz. “Hip-Hop reinvented everything.” Caz demonstrates the rapper’s requisite skill of quick composition and tight rhyming by writing and then performing an original piece on camera within 20 minutes.
