On Thursday 19th July fans will have the chance to witness an extraordinary moment in hip hop history when director Ice-T performs with rap legends Chuck D, Melle Mel and Raekwon for a one-off performance at the Hammersmith Apollo to mark the European Premiere of his directorial debut SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP.
Tickets are on sale for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the premiere screening and performance.
Visually luscious and drenched with the big beats of classic cuts and freestyle rhyming by some of the masters of the music, SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is Ice-T who with co-director Andy Baybut takes us on a personal journey into the asphalt roots of the music that saved his life.
Ice-T travels from coast to coast, engaging intimately with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Grandmaster Caz, Ice Cube, KRS-One, Nas, Run-DMC, Snoop Dogg and Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def. What emerges is a mighty soul tribute to the original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.
European Premiere & Concert event timings:
7.00pm – European Premiere screening of SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP
9.00pm – Live performances from Ice-T, Chuck D, Melle Mel & Raekwon
