Keepers of the Craft
Many can dance, but not everyone can dance like Bill T. Jones. Many can sing, but not everyone can sing like Audra McDonald. Many can rap, but not everyone can craft complex raps over beats and rhythms like the 54 rap artists that Ice-T has assembled for his highly anticipated documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap. Ice-T interviews icons KRS-One, Rakim, Chuck D, Ice Cube, Eminem, Big Daddy Kane and a plethora of younger artists. Rappers share from a more intimate place about themselves and their art. The limited Washington, DC engagement of Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap begins at E Street Cinema on June 15.
