After years of donations and lobbying, the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum will open its doors in late 2016 on 125th street in Harlem, New York.

“The community of Harlem has a rich history of arts and cultural contributions. The Harlem Renaissance has influenced artists, poets, scholars, educators, politicians, fashion, entrepreneurs, entertainers and community leaders from New York City throughout the world. Hip Hop music and culture will now join that legacy in Harlem as the Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum is set to open up its offices on the historic 125th Street,” wrote Dove Entertainment, who runs press and coordinates the hall.

The museum will additionally include an educational element that allows students to explore careers in fashion, entrepreneurship, and more.

“Students will be trained by industry professionals with special celebrity guest speakers, and graduate with their very own online e-commerce store teaching valuable skills, entrepreneurship, job creation and business management. All classes will include a ‘Life-Skills Module’ teaching young people about personal development, family and professional values and etiquette, college prep, career prep, financial literacy, home-ownership and entrepreneurship. Classes will range from 6-10 weeks and be in-conjunction with our Harlem Business, Community, Arts, Cultural, Media, and Educational Program Partners.”

Furthermore, there will also be room for recreational activities, with a restaurant, concert lounge, and bar. For more information on the development of the museum, head to their official website here.
