Rap royalty gathered in The Bronx for a groundbreaking ceremony of the Universal Hip Hop Museum in the genre’s birthplace and home borough of rap icons like Grandmaster Flash, Slick Rick, and Fat Joe among others.

However, Hip-Hop is the bomb.

And I knew this what I wanted to do. It was born from nothing, and it has fed millions and millions.”

The musical form of vocal delivery that incorporates "rhyme, rhythmic speech, and street vernacular", which is performed or chanted in a variety of ways, usually over a backing beat or musical accompaniment will live on in The Boogie Down Bronx.
