The Art of Rap
From the parks of South Bronx to the outer edges of the world, hip-hop has a long and complex history. But regardless of the geographical, cultural or aesthetic shifts, the vocal element (or rapping) has remained at the forefront. In his new film Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, Ice-T investigates the art of rapping and engages with some of the genre's most legendary emcees—from Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg to Kanye and Eminem—about their craft. And of course this comes with a killer soundtrack. From freestyles by KRS-One and Grandmaster Caz to classic tracks from Nas and Ultramagnetic MC's, the music here is a testament to the power of the medium. Pick up the soundtrack on Google Play and check out the exclusive 5-minute clip we have of the film. – Sam Chennault, Google Play
