Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 01/21/2012
"SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is poised to school a whole new generation of fans with insights from some of their favorite artists. Loaded with a capella on-camera performances and a soundtrack of killer beats..."
Total Film - 08/01/2012
3 stars out of 5 -- "There's a stack of great moments: KRS-One explaining rap-battling's genesis...Ice revealing what he does when he forgets lyrics during a show, Grandmaster Caz writing a rap on the spot."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2012
"In its structure and delivery, the documentary seems to have been constructed like a well-written rap song. It has a rigid focus on the central premise but allows the filmmaker and his interviewees to riff around the subject."
