Say what? The first ever Hip Hop museum will open next year?
According to multiple reports there are plans to build a 20 story museum in the heart of Harlem.
The exact address of the location is unknown, but the museum will be on 125th street.
Clearly this will be a large museum, and it will take a while to complete it. However, the first phase will be done by 2018. That phase will include a ground floor with a café, gallery, visitors bureau, and gift store, while the second floor will include the actual museum, an event space and a multi-media studio for film and television.
The second phase will include a museum, hotel, a mall, arcade, sports bar, and a concert lounge.
As a Hip Hop Head this news really excites me!
