I thought this movie was really good. First and foremost I would like to thank Ice-T for birthing this movie project. Ice-T went around and talked to different rappers and producers. He asked them different questions like What is your writing process and other good questions. Ice-T really got into mind of the hip hop artist of Q-Tip, Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Dougie Fresh, Snoop Dogg and many more. I really thought coming into this movie that a lot of the old school cats were going to start dissing the new generation of hip hop and start being real negative. As a matter of fact I was wrong and a lot of the old school cats in the video just talked about how they would write their rhymes and tell you the kind of things they needed in the booth. Most of the emcees like Treach from Naughty By Nature or Xzibit just needed a pen and a pad. Rakim goes in on some other level shit and talks about how he tries to take you into a whole other world.
I really liked what DJ Premier said about hip hop and being able to listen to it. He said a lot of the older generation doesn’t like hip hop because their ear isn’t use to the sound. They haven’t listen to it enough to get use to it and like it. I thought this statement was so true. A lot of people that don’t like a certain kind of genre of music or don’t understand it is because they have not listen to that genre that they don’t like enough times. I thought a lot of stories from the old school cats like Public Enemy, Marley Marl, or Melle Mel was just great. This is a movie you have to go see if you are a fan of hip hop and the culture.
