Last week, the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame confirmed that one of the biggest cultural movements in the last half century will have a museum celebrating its impact in its birthplace. The Hip-Hop Hall of Fame will open in New York City. According to the New York Daily News, organizers hope to break ground in 2015 and open the doors in 2017. There will be a 50,000 square foot location in Midtown Manhattan, with a 12,000 square foot annex in Harlem.

JT Thompson, Chairman of the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame Museum, released a video detailing what to expect from the museums and their exhibits. Check it out and salute to the many pioneers of Hip-Hop.
