Ice-T's ambitious documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap comes out today, and in honor of the occasion we spoke with him for our music feature this week. He talked on everything from his wife Coco's role in the film to the breathtaking logistical challenges of making it; they spent two years shooting on location in New York, Los Angeles and Detroit, flying to the latter city solely to get Eminem. But their sweat paid off, and the film features just about everyone prominent in rap over 30, including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, KRS-One, Afrika Bambaataa, Ice Cube, Xzibit, Run-DMC and about a million others.

Oh, and Dr. Dre. In fact, they brought the helicopters out to film at Dre's new pad....

...in the Hollywood Hills.

"We wanted to show something from nothing," Ice told me. "I thought Dre's house said it all. It's his new house, the $13 million house house, with a view of downtown to the beach, unobstructed. It's the craziest view ever. I was like, 'OK, you make N.W.A, you make Tupac, you make Eminem, you make The Game, you make 50 Cent, you get a $13 million house.'"

From the screenshots one can gather that the pad has it all -- columns, wrap-around pool that doesn't look like it's meant to be swum in, nice ass landscaping, geometric tile work.

It's clearly a step up from his former pad in Woodland Hills, which was more of a "mansion in a nice neighborhood" than a "palatial fucking compound."

The view from the front is below.
