Freestyle: Art of Rhyme

Over ten years in the making, FREESTYLE: THE
ART OF RHYME makes its highly anticipated DVD
debut on May 24th, providing an explosive inside look into the creative framework of hip-hop culture and the improvisational art of freestyle where MC's
express themselves by creating rhymes in the
moment. Following some of hip-hop's biggest
luminaries, FREESTYLE explores the art form's
history, rules, legendary MC battles, taboos, social
impact, and the previously unexamined dimensions
of improvisational rapping as a spiritual and community-
based art form. The New York Times' A.O. Scott
hails FREESTYLE as "Joyful! Ferocious! A
celebration of the verbal artistry of hip-hop.
Arousing education in an art form that is too often
misunderstood" while Jami Bernard of The NY Daily
News writes, "The Hollywood version is "8 Mile" but
the real thing is this admiring documentary that
explores the phenomenon with spirit. It contains
footage that is as exciting as an Ali/Foreman fight."
