Synopsis

Documentary directed by Ice-T and Andy Baybutt that charts the rise of rap music. Rap or hip hop is a relatively new musical genre, with its roots generally traced to the 1970s and 1980s. Ice-T, a well-known rapper himself, looks back at the history of rap and interviews a range of hip hop artists including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre and Kanye West, to gain their thoughts on what the music means to them. The film also interviews a number of the pioneers of rap music and endeavours to tell the full story of the growth of rap from its humble cultural beginnings to a global phenomenon responsible for millions of record sales every year.
