From the creators of the Academy Award Nominated film "Murderball" comes the cult classic documentary that explosively explores the world of improvisational rap. This award-wining and critically acclaimed film gives an authentic look into the life, music and history of 90's underground hip hop culture and is packed with rare and archival footage of some of the most amazing MC's ever to bless the mic.
From neighbourhood ciphers to the most notorious MC battles, "Freestyle: the Art of Rhyme" captures the electrifying energy of improvisational hip-hop--the rarely recorded art form of rhyming spontaneously.
Like preachers and jazz solos, freestyles exist only in the moment, a modern-day incarnation of the African-American storytelling tradition. Shot over a period of more than seven years, it is already an underground cult film in the hip-hop world.
The film systematically debunks the false image put out by record companies that hip-hop culture is violent or money-obsessed. Instead, it lets real hip-hop artists, known and unknown, weave their story out of a passionate mix of language, politics, and spirituality.
Featuring: Mos Def, Black Thought, Questlove, Cut Chemist, DJ Numark, Chali Tuna, MC Supernatural, Craig G, MC Juice, Planet Asia, Lord Finesse, Wordsworth, Boots Riley and more!
