Critic Reviews for Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap
There's no faulting the lyrical excellence on display. These guys are legends for a reason.
Rap confirms the art of the form from the inside. Only time can sort out the rest.
Essential viewing and a nice companion piece to "Wild Style," "Style Wars" and other key hip-hop documentaries.
In his debut as a documentarian, Ice T creates a vibrant portrait of how and why rap came to be.
This is a film that does sweat the technique, with at times illuminating and spirited results.
Audience Reviews for Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap
This movie is a who's who of Hip-Hop, explaining their craft. This is a documentary that anyone that loves rap needs to watch. I just wish that there would be a way to buy the outtakes, as there were so many rappers in this documentary.
Eric B and Rakim taught us not to sweat the technique but the point of this documentary is to sweat it profusely. Ice-T tries to get into every rapper's head that he talks to and tries to dissect the process that each one comes up with in writing lyrics (which you can imagine is as different as every rapper he talks to) and how they react when they hear a great rhyme from another MC. A labor of love that looks into the craft of the biggest pillar of hip hop....providing glimpses of what hip hop was about and ,hopefully, provides a guiding light on where it should be going.
