Even though it’s the documentary has an interesting subject, and the documentary-series only spans of only four episodes. The digital media platform is lacking in many areas. There is a limited amount of out-reach to fans, and specifically to fans of hip hop music and whom are interested in the subject. Even being a Canadian made documented would not be noticed well. It’s been promoted on a few hip hop and urban websites like The Fader. But there is close to no interaction between media and audience.
