Last night I had a chance to attend the Atlanta advanced screening of Ice-T’s new hip hop documentary called “The Art Of Rap – Something To Nothing. The private screening was hosted by Troy Allen Marshall and The Omen Agency and was put together by Ice -T to give Atlanta’s tastemakers a preview up the film. The movie, which is Ice-T’s first directorial debut, goes beyond the glitz and glamour of stardom to explore what goes on in the mind of some of the biggest names in Hip Hop. The thing I liked the most about the movie was being able to see the best of the best in Hip Hop share their perspectives on rap and what it takes to be a great emcee. Some of the Artist featured in the film include Big Daddy Kane, B-Real, Bun B, Chino XL, Chuck D, Common, DJ Premier, DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Grandmaster Caz, Ice Cube, Immortal Technique, Joe Budden, Kanye West, Kool Keith, Kool Moe Dee, KRS-One, Lord Finesse, Lord Jamar, Marley Marl, MC Lyte, Melle Mel, Nas, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Rakim, Ras Kass, Redman, Snoop Dogg, and WC. Make sure you go check out the movie when it hits theaters on June 15, 2012.
