An original score and orchestral Hip Hop interpretation is featured along with world video premieres from Kurtis Blow and Klondike Blonde.

“Sept. 21st is the International Day of Peace, Peace Day. What better way to celebrate peace as a cornerstone of Hip Hop culture than on Peace Day,” asked Tina Marie Tyler, creator and Executive Producer, “Hip Hop 4 Peace,” and Advisory Board member, Universal Hip Hop Museum.
