While many counted the music off as rubbish, it has recently become the most popular genre of music in the world.
Museums like the African American History Museum in Washington DC and the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville have dedicated full sections to the music that came from the hearts of poor young Black and Brown children from the Bronx and now has spread to the world.
The Universal Hip Hop Museum, located in the Bronx where both LL Cool J and Fat Joe attended its recent ground breaking, is solely dedicated to the preservation of the music and spirit.
Busta Rhymes and Fat Joe all have spanned almost four decades in the culture. LL Cool J can boast that he’s been rocking the bells for five, debuting his first song in 1985.
