The HIP HOP HALL OF FAME + MUSEUM has found a permanent location for its HARLEM POP-UP HIP HOP MUSEUM and YOUTH MEDIA EDUCATION ACADEMY & TV STUDIOS, which are scheduled to open next APRIL.
HIP HOP GLOBAL MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT has formed a long-term, multi-media programming, brand expansion, and educational partnership with the HHHOF to create the curriculum and manage the program and the HARLEM TV STUDIOS, with its state-of-the-art digital video, media, and audio equipment for youth and professionals to produce real content for the HIP HOP TV NETWORK CHANNELS, national TV and cable channels.
'It is great for us to maintain an educational base of operations in HARLEM as our HIP HOP HALL OF FAME + MUSEUM building will be in midtown MANHATTAN adjacent to TIMES SQUARE and is expected to take 18-24 months to complete construction starting in 2015," stated HHHOF Chairman JT THOMPSON, the creator of the HIP HOP HALL OF FAME AWARDS TV show which first aired on BET in the '90s and was televised earlier this month on the SOUL OF THE SOUTH TV network during HIP HOP HISTORY MONTH.
The HHHOF will also launch a KICKSTARTER fundraising campaign for the HARLEM POP UP MUSEUM and the YOUTH MEDIA EDUCATION ACADEMY on NOVEMBER 30th to raise $500,000 for the program, site development, equipment, and operations to enroll 50 youths in the program per year and then expand with peer-to-peer training with internships and job referral placements over three years.
"The-90 day fundraising campaign will feature HHHOF news, announcements, history, and themed content every week leading up to the 2015 HIP HOP HALL OF FAME AWARDS TV show in March 2015," stated DJ LORD YODA X, the show's co-producer.
