Ice-T Says "Art Of Rap" Is Not An Attack On Pop Rap, Reveals Why No Younger Artists Are Featured

Exclusive: Hip Hop's original gangster discusses his first foray into film-making, why your local weather man inspired his movie and why he couldn't call Kendrick Lamar to appear in it.

Rugged rhymer Smoothe Da Hustler recently employed some “Broken Language” to pay homage to “109 MC’s” over a clever flip of Ice-T’s classic “Colors” track for the official music video promoting his S.M.G. partner-in-rhyme’s new documentary, Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.  

Astoundingly, Ice interviewed almost exactly half that number of emcees for the film. Notable names the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Rakim, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Bun B, Nas, Ice Cube, Common, Q-Tip, Big Daddy Kane and Yasiin Bey (along with over three dozen more of their peers) appear alongside Ice as they discuss just what the craft of emceeing means to those that have dedicated their lives to the now nearly 40 year-old culture brought into the universe by some South Bronx kids with little more than two turntables and a microphone.

Reviving the once in-demand industry of in-theater Hip Hop documentaries like The Show and Rhyme & Reason that brought millions of new eyes and ears to the culture in the 1990s, the legendary rapper/actor puts a unique new spin on the old format by utilizing his respected status as the godfather of Gangsta Rap and his personal relationships with his interview subjects to pull out revealing responses that the average journalist could not elicit – along with some impressive, ear-grabbing freestyles (like Lord Finesse’s punchline-packed verse and even some jaw-dropping bars from Ice himself).

HipHopDX spoke to Ice late last Friday (May 8th) for a brief promotional Q&A about his film (in theatres today, May 15th), in which one-half of the hit reality show Ice Loves Coco explained why Hip Hop’s devolution into Pop served as the motivation for making his debut documentary but doesn’t serve as the film’s focus, as well as why Kendrick Lamar or any other contemporary spitters were not called in to give their thoughts on the art of rhyming. And after revealing his personal favorite freestyles and interviews in the film, Ice concludes his convo with DX by delivering a special message to all Hip Hop haters and Bill O’Reilly fans.

HipHopDX: Before we get into this quick discussion about the movie, I just wanna let you know that my 65-year-old mother is the biggest Ice-T fan in the world due to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Ice-T: Yeah, that’s a good look.

DX: Yeah, your retirement village pass is solid, so you can come through whenever. [Laughs]
 
Ice-T: That’s cool, that’s cool. I’m trying to stay in there. The senior citizens seem to like me, so that’s good.

DX: Just out of curiosity, did you see comedian John Mulaney’s bit about you on SVU during his Comedy Central special, New in Town?

Ice-T: Nah.

DX: Oh you gotta check that out, about how after 11 years your character is still baffled by the shocking crimes he investigates. [Laughs]

Ice-T: Yeah, yeah, well the stuff is kind of crazy that we look at … so yeah, that’s funny.

DX: Now, Art of Rap, you’ve said in previous interviews about this film that Hip Hop’s trend towards Pop over the last few years is what inspired you to make this movie. And I noticed there were no Pitbull or Flo Rida interviews in it, so is this documentary a declaration of war on Pop Rap?

Ice-T: Absolutely not. I was not even so concerned with the [trend towards] Pop as [much] as [Hip Hop] just not being looked at as an art form. I thought people were kinda looking at it [as a joke]. You see the weather man rappin’, you see all these other people [mocking the craft of emceeing]. And I was like, Hip Hop is something that really got me out of trouble and I want it to be held in the regard that it deserves.

I also always wanted to direct something, so this is my chance to do [that] and also give back to Hip Hop.

So nah, it’s not really about [attacking Pop Rap]. I just think that right now Hip Hop is moving at such a fast pace [that] there’s a lot of people jumping on to the bandwagon that have no idea [of] even where it comes from. So I wanted to give ‘em a little education.

DX: There are some amazing interviews in this film, 52 total, but I didn’t see any younger spitters like Kendrick Lamar or J. Cole in the preview clips. Why no love for the now school?

Ice-T: Nah, no [lack] of love, it’s just that I only used people I knew. I went in and interviewed all the people that I was familiar with, that were in my address book. This would basically be my peers: the people I toured with, the people I know from my time in Hip Hop.  

So I’m a fan of Kendrick Lamar, but I don’t know him. I only called people I knew ‘cause I wanted a personal conversation, versus reaching out to say people that might be hot. That’s not what the movie is about. The movie is more about trying to give people the origin and the essence of the golden age of Hip Hop, what inspired us.

It was called Something from Nothing for a reason, because when I started rappin’ nobody had [even] bought a car [off of Hip Hop music]. So, we were rappin’ for a different reason. It was the love of the art, the love of Hip Hop. Now that people are successful, a lot of people are getting into it for the money. They’re going after the prize versus the art form.

They say if you’re gonna tell a true story you always gotta start at the beginning, so that’s what I tried to do.

DX: There are some great exchanges in the film, especially the one with The Human Beatbox, and apparent walking lyrical database, Doug E. Fresh. Without giving too much away, what were some of the other interview highlights that folks can look forward to seeing in the film?

Ice-T: Well we went against the grain a lot. Like, you expect Chuck D to say some heavy and prolific stuff but we went with his story about how [Grandmaster] Melle Mel was dissin’ him at the Latin Quarter. Or, KRS-One’s interview where he talks about how he started emceeing ‘cause he was dissed [while] being a sideline cat at a battle.

So, I wanted to break the mold and let you see these are people - they all got kind of fun stories to tell about Hip Hop – and give you a look at the artists that you may not have been familiar with. I mean, my favorite story of the whole movie is [Rev] Run [of Run-DMC’s] story about being on top.

DX: Any hints about what he said? [Laughs]

Ice-T: Basically, he’s talking about sitting in a tub in a [hotel] suite eating French toast.

DX: [Laughs]

Ice-T: And the story goes on [from there]. But, it’s more like a conversation. That’s why I didn’t interview people I didn’t know, I wanted to talk to people, I wanted to chop it up. And when you have a relationship with people when you talk it’s a different kind of conversation.

DX: Out of the 50 plus Q&A’s, which one shocked you the most? Who surprised you the most with their insight?

Ice-T: Oh I was surprised a lot. I mean, I asked B-Real did he always have that [nasal] voice? He’s like, “No. They told me they were gonna kick me out the group unless [I changed my vocal delivery]. I was gonna be writing rhymes for Sen Dog.” So, a lot of people were sitting on the bubble with their career.

MC Lyte saying that she had a small voice and she’s known for having one of the most devastating female voices in history.

Eminem went deep and he started telling me about how Rap really kept him grounded when he went through [his battles with drugs].

So I got information from cats that I don’t think a normal interviewer would’ve ever got.

DX: You got a newfound appreciation for interviewers? [Laughs]

Ice-T: Well, nah I been interviewed enough [over the years] so I know a good interview when I hear one. I just know the trick to interviewing somebody well is know your material. Know what you’re talking about, and know who you’re dealing with, or you’ll really quickly insult the person that you’re interviewing and that’s the end of your interview. They’re gonna clam up. But when you start interviewing me [and] you start quoting “6 In The Mornin’” and rappin’ to me I’m like, “Aw, you my muthafuckin’ man, what else you wanna know?” [Laughs] You start getting that good stuff.

DX: I understand you had everybody spit something for the camera. I saw Eminem’s freestyle, which was ill, but who else just absolutely wrecks it on the spot in the film?

Ice-T: Grandmaster Caz killed it. I mean, one of the things I said [to each emcee] was, “Can you just give me a rhyme that you think is artistic you got written or off the head?” Immortal Technique destroys it

That was one of the questions. I had 12 to 15 questions I asked everybody. And, no one was briefed. No one knew what the questions were. And, they’re rappers, [so rhyming] is what they do.

DX: This is the cliché question, but what do you want people to take away from watching this film?

Ice-T: I want them to take away a respect, a reverence for Hip Hop, the way it should be. I want them to understand it maybe a little bit more. I think this movie is great for anybody who ever liked Hip Hop, listened to a Rap record, [or even] might’ve been on the fence about Hip Hop - didn’t know whether they liked it or not. [But] if you hate it, don’t go see the movie. If you already hate Hip Hop, don’t go see it, it’ll probably kill you dead in the seat.

But, if you ever had any curiosity about it – and I believe that’s 90% of the world – you will enjoy this film. The other 10%, go watch Bill O’Reilly and eat a dick.

    Ice FagQueer can't rap for beans on his hello kitty grill.

  • Poetic Sage 1

    I was somewhat disappointed at this so-called documentary as most of the things that were talked about is pretty much common knowledge or easily accessible. It failed to cover the art form itself and how the process of writing a Rap and the different methods that can be used. If he (Ice-T) wanted Rap to be portrayed in a different light and to be considered an "art form" the more time and attention should have be placed on the method rather than the delivery. I am a Slam Poet and author of a few books and even though Slam Poetry is more about the freeing of oneself from traditional literary forms a poem still has to fit within the art of spoken word. There are still rules to composing a poem as I know there are for writting a Rap. This was not adequately covered in any detail nor was there any mention of the complexities of syncopation ( staying on beat ) when recording a Rap. I could care less how Rap impacted an artist life rather, the means in which he/she goes about writhing a Rap. Even the methods as to how the delivery and content can differ by geographical regions. No of this was covered in a way to give validity to notion that Rap is an art form. It is kind of like going to English class and learning the definition of a word but failing to know the correct spelling of said word. It would have been received and or taken more seriously if he covered more of the process in creating the art form. Knowing how to read music, composing, arrangements, articulation, use of technology, and rhyming scheme composition. These are all but a hand full of what it takes to bring words from paper to ear. It should have been about the process of the art form and less about the individual/artist.

Ice is one of the realest if not the realest mc's out there and thats why the heavyweights have so much respect for this nigga.

  • Just Saying

    I dont know when people are gunna wake up and realize that today's music is trash, and that goes for all generes. The music industry continues to put music into a box to the point where everything sounds the same and everyone looks alike and as the fans we are the ones suffering from this because of the lack of quality music. Movies like this are just trying to show people that hip-hop/music has the ability to be better than it is and fans are fighting it and arguing against it. Fans need to stop defending their favorite artists (they are not your friends) and stop sticking up for the business side of the industry (you aint getting any money from it) and start acting like fans and demanding better quality music with more varity. Stop rolling over and letting artists sell out to the industry. Were the ones getting the short end of the stick.

    "Which 90% of you youngins know nothing of but are quick to shit on the same road that was paved" I don't think they shit on it. They just don't know about it. Or they've heard 1 or 2 songs from way baack and they weren't impressed. IMO, that's sort of the point. Older folk will always appreciate what goes into making a good song, while younger folk will always appreciate something that doesn't make them have to think, or listen for complex metaphors. It's ok. It's still just music.

    Wow, i can't believe these comments!!! Are you serious??? If there was no ice-t it would be no Jeezy, Wayne, Ross, etc. No NWA means no YMCMB,MMG and G.O.O.D. Im young but I KNOW MY HISTORY. Where are all the samples coming from? No Pete Rock, No DJ Premier means No Kanye West. No Master p means No Cash Money, No Nikki, No Drake How the hell is hip hop gonna evolve if we don't know its roots. The future is bleek, and dumb MF's ruling the world right now. CD sales are to women(who wanna dance and don't care about substance) and suburbia whites(who think blacks are ignorant anyway) what kind of dynamic does that make? Im tired of saying I respect the rappers hustle instead of their actually music. When was the last album you put in from start to finish no skips? I haven't done that in years.

      Young, and young minded. This generation has no appreciation for the origins of the music they listen to and even less respect. Most of them couldn't tell you about a block struggle or what it would be like to live in black skin during the LA riots, anywhere. Too young to understand that hip hop was originally less about bling & bitches and had actual substance. Ain't worth worrying about. Look at the forum you're catering to. Oh, and to anyone to whom it doesn't apply to and is young or "understands" I get it. But your peers don't. Educate them. Stop buying that radio bullsh!t, eventually they will stop playing it.

    You know why Hip-Hop is a joke? It's because it is the only artistic genre in which the creators and historic legends are totally disrespected by the newcomers and new fan bases. Just read most of the comments on this story alone. Look at people like Rick James, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, etc. They're all revered by fans of their genres both young and old. But Hi-Hop fans just flat out trash the legends and show them no love or support. You can chock it al up to the marketing of an art form to a group that breeds and feeds off of ignorance. And to clarify, I'm not bieng racist. I'm black and I'm nothing like today's young and ignorant Hip-Hop fans. This ignorance has nothing to do with race and more to do with the downright unintellectual attitudes and denseness of today's young people.

    • iamhiphop

      @youngsta HipHopGodd speaks the truth. Why can't rappers have long careers? You see rock and R&B artists that are in their 50s, 60s, and 70s still putting out albums, sell-out tours/arenas, and get love from old and young fans alike, but when a rapper turns 30 or 40, most of the young fans are like, "Oh, you too old. Retire." You'll understand that when the next generation of rappers disrespects your favorite rappers. Nobody stays young forever; remember that. Besides, just because someone doesn't like this generation's rappers, that doesn't mean they're old. I know high school kids and people in their 20s that hate some of this generation's rappers.

    Dead ass...save for a few younger cats, I don't even like defending the younger generation anymore because of the dumb shit that a lot of you say. This was film is the last film to shine light on the culture since Rhyme And Reason. 90% of you are quick to say "fuck the old heads" and all this other nonsense when YOU clowns are the reason why Hip-Hop may never grow bigger than what it is! I'm 28. I know what a corner cypher is, I've seen taggers, I've seen breakers and legit DJ's. Not these fuckin' clowns on radio pushin' buttons that BDS preselects, I know the definition of a remix is not putting more people on the same beat with the same hook, but a new beat probably done by the same producer with new rhymes and hooks but the soul of the track is the same!! YOU muhfuckas are the reason why frauds with ZERO skill on the mic run the game! And PLEASE don't square up with that "You just hating" bullshit because when I put people like y'all on the spot and say "what has he/she said that's so ill?" NONE of you have an answer other than "He/She got that swag!" I'm all for Hip-Hop. New breed and the elders. Real MCs and DJs. Which 90% of you youngins know nothing of but are quick to shit on the same road that was paved! The dude most of you love became an overnight blood when back in '99 he was in his videos with navy and grey rags hanging out the right back pocket! Next vid for the next album he's Pyru?? C'mon son!!! Don't believe me? Youtube it! Now don't get me wrong, I love the new breed but the ones with skill like Big K.R.I.T., Laws, Kendrick, Asher, Charles Hamilton, Snow Tha Product, Emilio Rojas lots of other young spitters with SKILL get no burn because the disrespectful portion of the new breed wants 5 years of swag instead of 5 years of substance!!

    Mad respect to ICE T I remember listening to his records when I was first getting into rap in the late 80's and early 90's. This was a time when you had to fight to play hip-hop. A lot of people hated you instantly just because you played hip hop. Very different than todays circumstance, where hip hop is 'cool' and even used on TV ads to sell popular goods, and rap stars are even endorsed by the president!! Full credit to ICE T for longevity in the industry, but most important, for doing something to keep it real for hip hop. Long live dope hip-hop, real rappers like Immortal and real fans.

      Yea he is 55 and still getting money doing him. What will your favorite artist be doing at 55? Respect your elders son. Ice T is the OG of gangsta rap and came up in a era that was 10x violent than these era. If he was a softy cribs and bloods would have exposed him a long time ago but that is not the case. Ice T is known to have associated with crips in the 80's the real gang bangers. Beyond that gang ish why you hating because he had a successful life after rap? You made cuz he not broke, on crack, in jail? WOuld he be a real nigga then? Dude you need to grow up son.

  • Mr. Wow

    KDOT hasn't made a classic album yet for him to be in this film. Big Krit hasn't done it either. If he was going to put any new school cats in the film it would be a murs, living legends, or atmosphere type group. Most of folks don't talk about them but they sell out arenas not clubs like KDOT and they pioneered the internet and nonstop tour grind. The now generation will have they day to shine in history if they progress but they have to wait in line. It wouldn't make since to put these youngsters in the film because none have done anything worthy of the goats.

    Ice T said somethin that's very true. rappers nowadays in it for the PRIZE, and not the art form. it's not like it used to be, rappers now getting into the game expecting to make millis and that's all what's on their mind. I want them cats who breathe hip-hop, like Kendrick Lamar. you can tell that nigga loves the essence of hip-hop. I won't hate on Ice for not checkin him, it's not the end of the world, he was only reachin to niggas from his address book. plus he gave his props to K-Dot, so thats that.

  • Anonymous

    This should be a good watch, but I really think that he should have talked a few new spitters like Kendrick and Big K.R.I.T. to hear their experience in the modern rap game as well as to hear their opinions on the past. Plus, this was a huge missed opportunity for Ice T to actually push some credible new artists like K Dot into the more mainstream eye. He's always complaining about the state of hip hop, so I personally feel like he should have tried to shine some spotlight on some new artists to at least attempt to counteract the popularity of artists like Nicki Minaj and Wayne. I understand that that isn't necessarily the point of the movie though so whatever. As a head, I'll definitely go in to watch this.
