Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Celebrates Hip-Hop


Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame

will be celebrating Hip-Hop with an exhibit in February, for Black

History Month. Rhymes & Rage: The Hip Hop Story will teach

visitors about the music, language and lifestyle of hip hop culture,

exploring the history, as well as hip hop's social, political

and economic influence on virtually every aspect of American pop

culture. The Exhibit will showcase the be-bop and spoken word

traditions of Cab Calloway in the 1930s to rap's commercial breakthrough

in the 1980s to the political and social consciousness and controversy

of rap's lyrical messages with Ice T, 2 Live Crew and Tupac Shakur

among others. This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is in

Cleveland, and the Exhibit will stay until August.
