The Art Of 16 Bars (2006)

It’s raw, blistering talent that defines the legendary MCs. But going from hungry amateur to rich professional takes more… much more! From the filmmakers who brought you The MC: Why We Do It, Beef, Beef II, The Freshest Kids and Rhyme and Reason, learn from the biggest MCs of our time exactly how they achieved success. They share their approach to live performances and how they put together a demo tape, got signed and dealt with labels as well as their hard-won behind-the-scenes knowledge about how the industry really works.

Includes interviews with Common, Raekwon, Nas, Rakim, KRS-One, Jay-Z, Slick Rick, Jadakiss, Talib Kweli, Twista, Ghostface Killah, Russell Simmons, The RZA, Hieroglyphics, Dilated Peoples, The Clipse, Q-Tip, Redman, Guru, MC Lyte, Killer Mike, Soup of Jurassic 5, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Moe Dee & more.
