SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP plus Live Q&A with Ice-T Sat 20/7/12 @ Ritzy Brixton

The Ritzy Brixton is pleased to announce that director and legendary rapper Ice T will be at The Ritzy to take part in a Q&A session following this exclusive screening of SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP (15).
Friday 20 July, 9.45 doors, 10.00 prompt start
Directors: Ice T, Andy Baybutt. UK/USA 2012. 112 mins.
This is a feature-length performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film's director and interviewer 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 he meets a whole spectrum of Hip-Hop talent, from founders to new faces to global superstars like Eminem, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West. 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'. This extraordinary film features unique performances from the entire cast, without resorting to archive matter.


 Visually luscious and drenched with the big beats of classic cuts and freestyle rhyming by some of the masters of the music, SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is Ice-T who with co-director Andy Baybut takes us on a personal journey into the asphalt roots of the music that saved his life.

Ice-T travels from coast to coast, engaging intimately with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Grandmaster Caz, Ice Cube, KRS-One, Nas, Run-DMC, Snoop Dogg and Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def. What emerges is a mighty soul tribute to the original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

 European Premiere & Concert event timings:
7.00pm – European Premiere screening of SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP 
9.00pm – Live performances from Ice-T, Chuck D, Melle Mel & Raekwon

 
The film has its European Premiere on Thursday 19 July at Hammersmith Apollo with a concert to follow with Ice-T, Raekwon, Chuck D & Melle Mel.  Then it goes on general release across the UK the following day.
