Straight Outta Compton

the   con   per    il bandito e il campione film

W ith a very simple premise, rapper Ice-T — this film's presenter and co-director with Andy Baybutt — has created a very enjoyable and often fascinating movie. His purpose is to discuss rap and hip-hop with some of its biggest stars, as far as possible concentrating on the technical aspects of composition — the prosody of rap. He's not interested in the bling or the gangsta-ism, or even much in its actual history: simply the business of rap itself. Essentially, what results is a series of impromptu performances — by the pool, on street corners, in the studio. Some might feel that there is too much mutual male admiration. But the performances can be mesmerising: aggressive, defiant, toweringly incorrect, brutally offensive and brilliant: some stunning displays of linguistic dexterity.

M ost people think rap is just a hobby some street dudes have — that we just improvise. The film features contributions from every great rapper in Ice-T's contact book, people I've grown up appreciating. We see them writing lyrics on paper. That might be because they are from a slightly older generation; younger MCs probably compose on BlackBerrys these days, but I think that's bad. There's something about transferring words to the page that helps you memorise them. We get a real insight into how these different artists do what they do.
