Harlem may not be a tourist's paradise, but the New York district is getting a new museum that just might draw new crowds; located in the hometown of Q-Tip, Jim Jones and countless other iconic artists, the official Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum will highlight hip hop music and culture from both Harlem and across the globe.
Founded by the creator of BET's Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards, the pending attraction will also feature a café, gallery, event space, HHHOF HQ offices, and a multi-media studio. The project is hoping to bring in revenue through concerts, which will partially go towards supporting the neighborhood's education and community programs.
While construction isn't slated to start until February 2018, its proximity to the historic Apollo Theater will only guarantee its popularity once it opens. Even better, you can make donations to the project via their website for a chance to say that you contributed to New York's hip hop culture.
