Hip hop lives

I have recently seen the Ice-T documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap. First, I did not think I would be able to see it. I am currently incarcerated and per institution policy, inmates are not allowed to view rated-R films unless they premiere on cable or television channels.

As fate would have it, I learned that VH1 would show the documentary, and short of some cataclysmic event I was not going to miss it.

Secondly, I’m not only an artist and emcee: I am an avid fan, follower, and freedom fighter for hip hop culture. Hip hop is a way of life for me. It is also the lens through which I look at the world to gain a particular perspective on various subjects.
