Before the Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap documentary airs tonight on VH1, here is another preview of the Ice-T film, from a conversation he had with Redman. In the clip, Mr. Cop Killer asks Redman who gained his respect as an MC from the new crop of artists and Red quickly responds with Eminem (remember “Off The Wall“??)
He mentions KRS-One and Slick Rick as his mentors, but Em got his nod because he always kept it G with the people on the bottom, and stayed in the hood (Redman remembers him running through Newark, New Jersey with The Outsidaz) even though he could have sold out and went mainstream from the jump.
Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap airs tonight at 9 PM EST on VH1.
