[VIDEO] Ice-T Talks About Eminem And Dr. Dre's Contributions To His Rap Documentary
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.19.2012



Ice-T spoke with MTV about his new documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, which opened in theaters on Friday. It features appearances from names like KRS-One, Melle Mel, Dr. Dre and Eminem.

While on RapFix Live, he talked about putting the film together and how both Dre and Eminem helped with the final product. He said he spoke with Dre at his home in California to talk about the past and present of hip-hop. Dre then talked about the difference between writing regular rhymes and writing a song while mentioning his time recording with Tupac.

Ice-T said: "[Dre] said there's a difference between a rapper and a songwriter. Dre says, 'You've gotta write me a song. I don't need bars I know you've got skills, but we need songs, so give me the hook first.' He says a lot of rappers get lost, but that's what Eminem does. They write these incredible songs, and that's basically what Dre likes to take to the marketplace."

Ice-T also spends time with Emienm in the studio, where Eminem says being a white rapper forced him to work harder to prove himself. He talked about his method to writing a rap, but Ice-T said: "It was like you were listening to a scientist."
