Sundance Institute today announced that Ice-T and hip hop icons Chuck D (Public Enemy) and Grandmaster Caz will perform at 'A Celebration of Music in Film' on January 21 at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP explores the roots and history of Rap. Through conversations with Rap's most influential artists - among them Kanye West, Eminem, Common, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Chuck D, Mos Def, and Ice Cube - Ice-T reveals the creative process behind this now-dominant art form.
"Ice-T's legacy in the music community is indelible, and we are very proud to showcase these prolific and groundbreaking artists at the Festival this year," said Peter Golub, Director of the Sundance Institute Film Music Program and producer of 'A Celebration of Music in Film.' "Similarly, the Festival has long been a champion of showcasing the art and imagination of music in film, and that legacy continues this year."
"We could not be more excited and honored to have music legends Ice-T, Chuck D and Grandmaster Caz perform at this year's Festival," said Tracy McKnight, producer and co-host of 'A Celebration of Music in Film' and Head of Film Music for Lionsgate. "This night is about celebrating music in film, and highlighting this incredible art form will certainly make this evening a 'once-in-a-lifetime' event."
