Hip hop documentary, Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap, has released was a free Android and iOS mobile app, The Art of Rap, which allows users to rap over hip hop beats and share recordings of their efforts.
Record yourself over well known instrumentals from Cypress Hill, MC Lyte and 2Pac, for a 99 cents of course (there are also two free beats to rap over). Once finished, mix your track and share directly to Facebook and Twitter and on The Art of Rap web site. Create as many different mixes your bank account allows and check out other users and rate their flow.
This is a cool app to get your classic hip hp fix after watching the film. However, the app doesn’t go any further than that. There is no prize or ranking system, just a bunch of amateur raps from hip hop heads.
