"I'm thrilled that the technology now exists to allow accessibility to the international artists and communities that are featured in the film. When I began this project over 12 years ago, the distribution platforms for independent filmmakers were very limited. Platforms such as iTunes, Youtube and Netflix were non-existent", says the Brooklyn-based director and brand strategist, Muhammida El Muhajir.

After a historic promotional screening tour in Europe (London, Paris, Berlin, University of Oxford) the film heads to Africa this month (Lagos, Accra, Johannesburg).

The film is available now. Online for rent $4.99 (digital streaming) or downnload to oown $19.99 (DVD or digital download) from http://www.hiphopisglobal.com.

The film is also available for schools, libraries and other groups at the institution / organisational rate and has already been incorporated into courses at Harvard, The New School and The University of Sheffield (UK) as a work-in-progress.

"I'm thrilled to finally release Hip Hop: The New World Order and have the opportunity through the partnership with Trace TV, to expose this important documentation of international hip hop history with artists and communities around the world", says director, Muhammida El Muhajir.
