Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame is poised to become the Hip-Hop institution of record for the 21st century, as reported in Billboard Magazine. The Non-Profit Chartered Museum will oversee the museum, exhibits, and community outreach with "pioneers" of rap. It will also feature a sports bar, arcade, restaurant, retail gift shop, concert lounge, TV studios and merchandising divisions.
The Advisory Board members are illustrious and include legends Easy AD & Grandmaster Caz of the Cold Crush Bros, RockHall inductee Melle Mel, Shabba Doo, Roxanne Shante, Pebblee Poo, L.A. Sunshine, Kool Herc, and the late Mr. Magic, and HHHOF inductee Jam Master Jay of Run DMC, to name a few.
The HHHOF will provide 300 jobs, internships, co-branded marketing opportunities, as well as educational events and outreach programs for the youth and families. The economic impact in the City of New York is expected to be over $350 million over five years, from on-site and off-site programming, tourism, B2B local commerce, consumer spending, and city tax revenues. The HHHOF, in conjunction with its kids mascot "B-Boy Scratch & Friends," will also mentor over 20,000 NYC public school children per year with special field trips to the complex being dubbed as the new "Urban Theme Park."
