New Hip Hop Museum Opening In Harlem New York

Hip Hop has always been a huge influence on the streets from Graffiti to beat boxing, break dancing and last but not least the music. HipHop originated in the Bronx New York and spread across The United States with no warning to any what kind of impact it would have on the music culture but it was huge. 

The new Hip Hop Hall of Fame will have some items from Hip Hop Legends Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Outkast, Young Jeezy, Common, Eminem, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataam, and many more according to the museum’s organizer.

The hall of Fame will be built in Harlem New York, The “Four Fathers” of hip hop — Afrika Bambaataa, Grand Wizzard Theodore, Grandmaster Melle Mel and Grandmaster Caz Brown — had pushed for the city’s first hip hop museum to be based in the Bronx, where HipHop was first born.

The Harlem site on 125th St. will include a 12,000-square-foot museum space,shops and a TV studio.

“This will be the home of hip hop history,” said JT Thompson, who produced BET’s one-time Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards show in the 90s.

“People need to understand the importance of hip hop, the elements, the DJs, the B-boys and B-girls and the graffiti writers,” he added.

Music will forever be the escape for many people it will never matter what genre you listen to some extent that is the safe heaven for your mind and soul to release and be at peace. We cherish the art form of HipHop for many reasons the influence its had on Cultural Races and the positive and negative impacts it has on the streets but none the less HipHop is an art form unique in a sort of way where you really need to live it to understand it.
