Bronx Set To Become Home For New Universal Hip-Hop Museum

A new development in the Bronx will feature a big space for hip hop fans.

DNA Info reports that a new project called Bronx Point was recently approved by Community Board 4, which represents the borough. The project will include the Universal Hip Hop Museum, which has been in the works for four years. 

Executive Director Rocky Bucano told the website that names like Ice-T, LL Cool J, and Kurtis Blow are already behind the project. 

The museum plans to partner with Google, Microsoft, and other companies to create immersive tech and entertainment experiences that include video and photography, music, artifacts, a performance stage, and research areas. 

Blow stated, “The Universal Hip-Hop Museum may be the single most important project for the preservation of hip-hop culture. This new cultural institution will be a great new tourism destination for NYC and the Bronx.”

Phase one of the project is expected to be complete in 2022.
