“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. With plans to develop the Hip hop museum and a coinciding youth media education already underway.

More than 100 donated artifacts, memorabilia and distinguished collections from artists such as 2 Pac, The Zulu Nation, the Notorious B.I.G., Run-DMC, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and more will be showcased. The aim of each exhibit is to provide an educational and enlightening experience for visitors.
