From Public Radio International's Bullseye with Jesse Thorn:
Ice-T is a rapper and actor, with more than ten albums and nearly eighty acting credits to his name. He's also considered one of the forefathers of gangsta rap. This week he adds "filmmaker" to an already diverse resume, as he makes his directorial debut with the hip hop documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap, in theaters this Friday, June 15th.
Ice sits down with us to talk his desire to bring an artful appreciation to hip hop's origins, going through his phone book to sit down with friends to discuss the craft, and resolving the mystery as to whether or not he was a ghostwriter for an 80s rap album by Mister T.
