Ice T’s documentary about lyricism in hip-hop was released this past weekend to the tune of $150,000 in ticket sales. Not bad considering it’s an independent film and was released in select markets but as a fan of the genre itself and some of the intricacies of it – you feel a bit disappointed in the turn out. Hence why Bun B himself put out the message on Twitter last night that today you can go see The Art Of Rap, with Bun himself.

If you want to serve court with the King Of The Trill (he’s in the film, by the way), make your way to Edwards Theatre (3839 Weslayan) for the 2:10 showing of The Art Of Rap. Sell it out and support hip-hop. I think a similar effort was made when the A Tribe Called Quest documentary came to town last year.
