"Something from Nothing" is a celebration of hip-hop's past and present, as well as a vigorous defense of its credentials as a legitimate art form. Entertaining and enlightening, it's a must-see not just for hip-hop fans, but for music fans, period. What Parents Should Know:
Parents need to know that "Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap" is both a comprehensive history lesson on hip-hop and an exploration of the creative processes of the genre's most influential artists. In scenes where the different rappers freestyle, there's frequent profanity. There's also a scene in which one of the rappers is shown rolling, lighting, and smoking a joint. But for older teens and parents who are fans of the genre -- as well as music fans, period -- this is an excellent documentary about hip-hop's roots, evolution, and creative spirit. —Common Sense Media
