Produced by Canterbury Productions, the film features local iconic record store Play de Record that played an important role in the coming of age of Toronto hip-hop.

The second photo on screen shows Jacksons studio set up with turntables, mixer and speakers while the surrounding walls are covered with posters of American hip hop artists. The scene focuses on Nelson as he explains the challenges artists faced; with a lack of professional studio equipment being the main point.
