The hip-hop trio will perform in celebration of Ice-T’s documentary“Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap,” which examines the craft and skill of the music with input from prominent hip-hop figures, including Afrika Bambaataa, Nas, Mos Def, KRS-One, Run-DMC, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg.

In a previous interview, Ice-T expressed that pop music’s influence on hip-hop inspired him to make a film about the serious aspect and art of rhyming:

I’ve interviewed 50 emcees – everybody – [from] Kanye West, Ice Cube, Eminem to Melle Mell, Grandmaster Caz. The hip-hop scene [has] become so pop. I was like, ‘I’m gonna do a movie about real rappers and what inspired us.’ Maybe that’ll hit a reset button on the game and let these kids know it’s not just about a pop record. Rap can do a lot.

This is not the first time urban acts have been featured at the Sundance Film Music event. In recent years, acts such as Lou Reed, Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and Patti Smith have all headlined.
