New York provides $3.5M grant to help build Hip-Hop Museum in the Bronx
Now this is a rapper’s delight!
The state awarded a $3.5 million capital grant to help build the first museum in the world dedicated to hip-hop music and culture, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday.
The $80 million Universal Hip Hop Museum is scheduled to open in the South Bronx in 2023. The borough, better known as the “Boogie Down” Bronx in old-school hip-hop circles, is considered the birthplace of hip-hop.
