Hip hop originated in 1973 in the South Bronx at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue. According to BELatina, many of the old school artists like Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane, Rakin, LL Cool J, Q Tip and Nas are participating in the creation of the Universal Hip Hop Museum that will be part of the Bronx Point development on the banks of the Harlem River.

The museum will provide performances, films, seminars and labs that showcase the sounds, art and personalities of hip hop in a 50,000 square foot space located just south of Yankee Stadium.

The Universal Hip Hop Museum is expected to be open by 2023, the 50th anniversary of hip hop. They’ve currently raised $20 million about $60 million short of their goal before the museum opens.

  1. 50,000 square foot space? Some schools aren’t that large! A 50,000 square foot park space would serve this underserved community so much better! Why are we building a concrete jungle and not open green space?
