OM Skip Dillard (WBLS and WLIB) of Inner City Broadcasting’s WBLS/WLIB in New York with Hip-Hop legends Cut Man LC, DJ Rocky and Kurtis Blow. Legends coming together in support of the creation of the 1st Hip-Hop Museum in New York City.
Hip-Hop Museum. For years, lovers of Hip-Hop as well as music pioneers, artists and those in radio have long desired for the creation of a designated place for the preservation of the ever changing culture of Hip-Hop. The “Father of Hip-Hop”, Afrika Bambaataa, states “the museum would look at the historical and cultural roots of hip-hop and the contributions made by break dancers and disc Radio DJeys.” Bambaatta continues, “many people think of rappers when they hear the word hip-hop. But there’s a whole culture and movement behind it.” The support for a Hip-Hop Museum is already evident and it looks like the growing support will soon manifest into something tangible in New York City before 2017.
