what's the story

Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers' insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

"I felt I really had to do this film because rap music saved my life," explains Ice-T, narrator and co-director of this glossy documentary, which celebrates the men and women who propelled the lyrical art form into the musical mainstream. Almost 50 interview subjects are shoe-horned into 111 minutes, from old skool legend Grandmaster Caz, who surmises, "Hip hop didn't invent anything, hip hop re-invented everything!" to a typically chilled Snoop Dogg, claiming to get his creative juices flowing by smoking "a bit of weed". Popular figures like 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Queen Latifah don't warrant a mention but Ice-T and co-director Andy Baybutt embrace other icons including Chuck D from Public Enemy, Q-Tip and Eminem.
