“Paper Chasers” follows Collier and crew as they travel across America in an RV to interview an assortment of hip-hop business owners. Interviews include actor Jamie Foxx and rapper/exec Chuck D.

“After coming across an assortment of wack Hollywood offers, Next Wave Films stepped forward with a deal that is completely in line with our entrepreneurial and artistic vision,” said Collier.
