Indomina has acquired world rights to Ice-T's Sundance documentary "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap," and intends to release the film in early summer. The film features Chuck D, Grandmaster Caz, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Melle Mel, Q-Tip, Redman, Mos Def, Afrika Bambaataa, B Real, Immortal Tecnique, Ice Cube, MC Lyte, Nas, Dr. Dre, KRS One, Common and Kanye West. (Here's Indiewire's Ice-T interview.)

First-time director Ice-T also exec produced, alongside Jorge Hinojosa, Simon D. Pearce, David Kaplan, Alison Toogood and Jelena Nikolic. Toogood also produced.

Indomina's Jasbinder Singh Mann says, "The Art of Rap is a perfect fit for Indomina - a masterfully crafted, superbly riveting and star studded film about rap that only Ice-T could deliver."

Dominican Republic-based Indomina Group's recent acquisitions also include the UK's Simon Pegg-starrer "A Fantastic Fear of Everything" and Johnny To's "Life Without Principle," which debuted at Venice.

More on the film below:

"Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap" is a performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop. Practitioner/filmmaker Ice-T, with codirector Andy Baybutt, takes viewers on a personal journey into the craft and skill of rap, and what goes on inside the minds and erupts from the pens of rap legends. Ice-T travels from coast to coast, engaging intimately with his subjects, and what emerges is an intense tribute to the original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.
