I (heart) hip hop! @ the National Museum of Hip Hop (coming soonish)
We definitely heart hip hop over here at Babesta, and we can't wait to check out the National Museum of Hip Hop when it comes to fruition – with its full sized tag-if-you-want to train and celebration of all things hip hop. Craig Wilson, the co-founder of the museum says it's more than just music- it's culture. He describes four pillars: dance (B-boying/break dancing), technical (DJing), artistic (graffiti) and emceeing (hip hop/rap music). Right now they're just raising money, but they have some big names behind it like Russell Simmons and Chuck D. They were given a shoutout in the NY Times, interviewed by NPR, and now they've been Babestafied. Finally a museum moms will not have to drag their teenage sons to.
