A Way Of Life Premiere Autumn 2014'Industry Number 1' Hip-Hop collective launch 'A Way Of Life' a journey though the world of global Hip-Hop. A feature length documentary covering the expansion of the most significant musical movement of modern times. Shot over a span of two years in 21 locations across the globe 'A Way Of Life' explores Hip-Hop culture from music to graffiti, beat boxing and break-dancing.

The film highlights Hip-Hop's progression through it's near 40 year existence, from an underground subculture of New York "Bronx" Hip-Hop to London's Grime scene and MPC battles in Japan.

Interviews include up and coming as well as established artists such as KRS One (USA), Skinnyman (UK), Jeru The Damaja (USA), Doppelgangaz (USA), Lord Finesse (USA) and Big Narstie (UK) illustrating their talent, background and the socio-cultural environments that influence their music.

"Hip hop is a basic attitude against oppression, the attitude that my voice isn't being heard, and I'm going make my voice heard no matter what, that goes across all races of people, all cultures" - KRS One

"Its become a foster parent for thousands of races" - Big Narstie

The film has already gained valuable recognition leading to radio features for Reprezent and Deja Vu radio (London), collaborations with various record labels such as Kartel (Malaysia), KlapYaHandz (Cambodia), Prosto (Poland) and a forthcoming taster screening at Xplosif Hip-Hop Festival in Stavanger, Norway.

'A Way Of Life' gives prominence to a culture that has gone beyond music, providing an accessible platform of expression for millions of people across the globe.
