Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap Reviews
We get to see people from Grandmaster Cas to Snoop, Melle Mel to Kanye and from B-Real to Q-tip. If you don't know anything about rap you will get a lot out of the flick, but if you know your history it won't bring much to the table.
5.5 out of 10 bars.
Even as fanservice, Ice-T's movie still proves pretty crappy. Most of the freestyles are uninspired, many interviews just useless bantering, the skyscraper/skyline shots lazily put-together and unnecessary, and scenes like the one with the gawking fan and Q-Tip... A middle finger to video editing. The fact Ice-T put his movie out like this supposes he's either mentally retarded or completely narcissistic. Probably a mixture of both.
Hey, I still enjoy Ice-T in Law & Order. Maybe that accounts for *something*.
