Ice-T on Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap

Ice-T has been talking about his directorial debut after releasing "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap".

The rapper-turned-actor, whose real name is Tracey Marrow, interviewed some of the biggest stars from his former line of work.

He told journalists that he had been searching for a new challenge.

"I was at a point in my career where I was like: 'Another album from Ice, is that really the accolade that I want? Even if it went platinum, do I really need that? No.'

"But a great film, that's another first. And I'm somebody that wants firsts."

It played at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will be released this summer.
