The City of New York, the Office of the Mayor, and the Universal Hip Hop Museum have partnered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop in 2023. This 12-month partnership includes local community activities throughout each of the five boroughs and a global concert.
NYC taxis, HipHop 50th Anniversary artist names illuminated in the NYC skyline, kiosks, buses, immersive traveling experiences, murals, walking tours, and other platforms throughout the five (5) boroughs will showcase the stories of New York City’s contribution to 50 Years of Hip Hop history.
Slated to open in late 2024, the Universal Hip Hop Museum will be a 50,000 + sq. ft. cultural institution dedicated to the preservation, education, and amplification of global Hip Hop history.
