New York governor Andrew Cuomo said the state of New York will award a Bronx-area museum-which is under construction-with a $3.5 million grant.
The state of the art exhibit dedicated to the celebration of hip hop music and culture is said to open in 2023.
2023 is also the 50th anniversary of hip hop.
The Universal Hip Hop Museum is an $80 million project that was conceived back in 2014.
Kurtis Blow is the museum’s chairman, Ice-T is a founding board of directors member. Chuck D is also a board member.
