Five Reasons You Should See Ice-T’s ‘The Art of Rap’

Movies & TV

3. It’s Like a Hip-Hop Family Reunion

The best part of any reunion is catching up with friends and family. The Art of Hip-Hop features a cast of emcees who’ve (for the most part) been out of the limelight for enough time that you’ll be genuinely excited to see them.

2. Who Doesn’t Love a Good Back-story

No spoiler alert needed, but let’s just say The Art of Rap features some interesting stories about KRS-One and Kanye West’s first time rapping. While West and KRS lamented over their first stab at rapping, others like Rev. Run and Chuck D recall being at the height of fame, and what it meant to be pioneers.

1. Kanye, Eminem and Dr. Dre

I hate to say it, but there’s something to be said for having known recluses Dr. Dre and Eminem, and mega-star Kanye West featured in the film. There’s no doubt the documentary would still be stellar without the big names, but having contemporary rap stars involved is a great boost.
