New York Planning To Build A Hip-Hop Museum With $3.75 Million State Grant
It has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. According to CNN, New York awarded a $3.75 million state grant to help build The Universal Hip Hop Museum, dedicated to the preservation and celebration of hip-hop history and culture throughout the decades.
Presently, The Universal Hip Hop Museum is temporarily located in the Bronx Terminal Market and is the brainchild of New Yorkers who have been on the hip-hop scene since the beginning.
Executive Director and Bronx native, Rocky Bucano, who was a teenage DJ in the ’70s describes the 8-year-old museum as an “ambitious, audacious dream.”
