Krush Groove, Friday and Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap are among Green-Label.com’s list of the Best Hip Hop Movies Of All Time.
Krush Groove was released in 1985 and is considered by many as a landmark Rap film. “One of the reasons anyone is writing about Hip Hop these days is, without question, Def Jam Recordings,” the green-label.com story says. “Nowadays home to Rihanna, Kanye West, Big Sean, and Young Jeezy, among others, Def Jam was responsible for introducing seminal acts Public Enemy, Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, and LL Cool J. Krush Groove fixes the lens on the early days of the legendary label. Though it’s a fictionalized account, it provides an excellent look at the first true majorly successful Hip Hop label, the house that Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin built.”
In addition to the 1995 film Friday, which stars Ice Cube, the Green-Label.com list also includes Ice-T’s 2012 documentary Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.
“The newest entry on this list, Something from Nothing, is best described by Ice-T’s opening line: ‘I really felt I had to do this movie because rap music saved my life. When I first heard rap, it just blew my mind,’” the Green-Label.com story says. “As director, Ice-T eschewed the academic approach and took viewers on a personal journey through not just his eyes, but also that of several-dozen emcees. Ranging from older acts like Afrika Bambaataa to modern-day superstar Kanye West, Something from Nothing has something for everyone.
