And in movie news.........
Ice T and wife CoCo hosted a red carpet premiere event for his new rap documentary Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap last night at Alice Tully Hall in NYC. He revealed why he made the documentary--which he first showed at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival--to TIME saying,
I wanted to start directing. I’ve been in film for a while and that’s something I want to do down the road, and I said, ‘Maybe this should be my first project.’ I was looking at the state of hip hop and I was like, ‘I don’t feel people respect it as much as they should.’ So I went out and called all my friends. I said, ‘I want to do interviews with you, but I’m going to talk to you about not the money, the cars, the jewelry, the beef. I want to talk about the craft.’ They were like, ‘Nobody ever asks us those questions.’
Treach of Naughty By Nature attended the event.
Rapper Fabolous supported Ice T's movie.
Actor Leon is aging like a fine wine. We're just sayin'...
And Busta Rhymes was there with Rah Digga. Good to see the hip hop community supporting hip education of sorts. The documentary hits select theaters this Friday.
