PARK CITY, Utah — Hip-hop is making itself heard — and seen — at the Sundance Film Festival.
In addition to performances by rappers Drake, Common, Nas, Lil Jon and Chuck D, the festival includes documentary and narrative films about hip-hop culture.
Ice-T's documentary, "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap," premiered at the festival. It stars artists such as Run-DMC, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Mos Def and Eminem.
Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew fame appears in a short film called "The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke."
"Filly Brown," a contender in the U.S. dramatic competition, tells a story of a rising Hispanic hip-hop artist in Los Angeles and the challenges she faces on the way to fame.
Sundance continues through Sunday in Park City, Utah.
