Ice-T's documentary is neither a history of rap nor an investigation into its association with gangs and the like. Instead, the pioneer gangster rapper explores the origins of the music genre, primarily by asking contemporaries like Eminem and Dr Dre about what they, as rappers, strive for - their topics, their standards, their influences, their writing and improvising and how they hope to inspire future rappers.
An extremely interesting insight, proving that rap music is an art form in its own right.
