Hip-Hop Hall of Fame museum to open in New York

It’s been announced that two Hip-Hop Hall of Fames will be opening in New York in order to honour the history of the genre and its cultural implications, as well as and its long-standing influence on music today.

The two locations will be in midtown and Harlem, and both will present important historical relics as well as elements that have defined the culture. As well as exhibiting donated items from the likes of Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Outkast, Young Jeezy, Common, Eminem, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa, each museum will also seek to educate punters in other facets of the genre such as DJing, B-boys and B-girls and street art.

Construction on the large-scale project is due to begin in summer 2015.
