“At a time when honoring Hip-Hop has become en vogue, there is no other organization properly and professionally giving these American Icons their flowers the way The National Hip-Hop Museum does,” Quan said.
“Hip-Hop is America’s largest cultural export, and is now a multi-trillion dollar global industry that needs to be preserved and honored,” The Hip-Hop Museum Pop-Up Experience Founder Jeremy Beaver said. “By creating and archiving the world’s largest Hip-Hop collection and hosting these historic induction ceremonies, we hope to contribute to preserving Hip-Hop history and culture.”
