Exclusive to iTunes Extras - Public Enemy's Chuck D Outtake

Following successful theatrical runs in the US and UK, Ice-T's widely praised feature documentary, "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap," is now available to pre-order on iTunes (http://www.itunes.com/ArtOfRap). The iTunes version of the film will be available for download on September 18 and includes an exclusive outtake featuring Public Enemy's Chuck D.

An engrossing performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop, "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap" features some of the genre's biggest talents, including Chuck D, Grandmaster Caz, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Melle Mel, Q-Tip, Redman, Mos Def, Afrika Bambaataa, B Real, Immortal Technique, Ice Cube, MC Lyte, Nas, Dr. Dre, KRS One, Common and Kanye West.

Since its premier at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the film has won raves from hip-hop specialists and more mainstream media alike. Allhiphop.com's Tim Sanchez wrote, "Ice-T has produced one of the finest and most detailed film documentaries about Hip-Hop in existence…a source of inspiration and education for all Hip-Hop fans young and old." Time Out London's Tom Huddleston wrote, "On the big screen, the sheer force and energy of these poets is extraordinary… These guys are legends for a reason."

Available September 18 on iTunes and other digital platforms, on DVD at Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Amazon.com, and via Video on Demand. The DVD boasts a number of extras, including outtakes featuring Dr. Dre, Kanye West, KRS-One, and Q-Tip.

Background

"Rap is an American art form and it needs respect," Ice-T said in a recent interview with Hip-Hop Weekly. "I wanted to do a film that makes people totally understand how great it is to me. Rap saved my life. So I called my friends up and asked if they'd be in my movie: ‘I'm not gonna ask you about the money, the cars, the jewelry, the beef. I just wanna ask you about the craft.' It was a labor of love."
