It is a feature length performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Hip-Hop. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film’s director and interviewer known as 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 Afrikaa Bambaataa, Q-Tip, Yasiin Bey, KRS-One, Eminem, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and more. 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’.
