In this Live Session, Bucano, who founded the nonprofit museum with artists including Kurtis Blow, Ice T, LL Cool J, and Nas, discussed the museum’s mission of teaching, engaging, and inspiring audiences around the world through the creativity and power of Hip Hop Culture…Tune in!

The UHHM carries out its mission by giving voice to the stories of the people, events, and artifacts that shaped the five elements of Hip Hop — through digital collections, virtual exhibits, interviews, pop-up experiences, award shows, and a wide array of innovative educational programs and activities, bringing new understanding, fresh interpretation, and scholarship to the world’s most popular culture of our time.

The Bronx Terminal is the UHHM’s temporary location. The museum’s permanent home will be the anchor of Bronx Point, a 530,000-square-foot mixed-use project that will initially bring 542 permanent, rent- and income-restricted, affordable housing units to the South Bronx in 2024.

About Universal Hip Hop Museum:

The Universal Hip Hop Museum was founded by Rocky Bucano and a group of iconic entrepreneurs and artists including Kurtis Blow, Ice T, LL Cool J, Nas, and many others. They joined forces to create the world’s first Hip Hop Museum in the Bronx. Currently, UHHM’s Executive Director Rocky Bucano and his team are collecting artifacts and memorabilia from around the globe. They’ve recently received a donation of massive speakers from the club The Roxy, the original sound system from Pete DJ Jones, one of the original mobile disc jockeys. The collection also includes an acrylic collage of Eminem on canvas by the artist Borbay, a rare Rocawear Roc-A-Fella black leather tour jacket, a bike signed and used by Snoop Dogg from the MTV sketch show “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” and every edition of notable Hip Hop magazines. And that’s not all. For more information, visit
