‘These type of classic hip hop events are the very essence of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum, a beneficiary of the concert, to celebrate peace, love, unity, and having fun – the fundamental principles of Hip Hop Music & Culture,’ stated co-producer JT Thompson, creator of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show that aired on BET in the 1990s, and founder/chairman of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum. Its Hip Hop Museum has pivoted to Harlem and will announce its location later this fall during Hall of Fame Awards Week in November, and plans to open its facility in 2016. It will feature a Hall of Fame, museum, restaurant, retail gift shop, arcade, TV studio, and concert lounge producing over 100 live events, concerts, and other various multi-media celebrity driven content per year for a hungry national and international audience.
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame and LiveNation have also entered discussions about expansion of these positive and highly entertaining concerts mixed with community outreach efforts nationally and internationally utilizing the Official Hip Hop Hall of Fame brand for a 20 City National Tour. Mayors have already expressed interest in the concert tour coming to their respective cities, as Classic Hip Hop Music now has its own formatted radio stations around the country. This tour would reach and entertain tens of thousands of loyal fans of all ages, and also serve thousands of local kids in disadvantaged communities with positive and uplifting education messages while also generating tens of millions of impressions from the events, press, national media, and the community & educational outreach activities for our corporate partners and sponsors.
