On August 11, 2023, Universal Hip Hop Museum will be having an on site celebration which marks the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop legend KOOL HERC. Kool Herc set the stage for what was about to become a phenomenon of the future – block parties, break dancing, graffiti and most of the talked about rappers of all times. Kool Herc had no idea what was about to happen, all from his DJ set with a mix of old school and new school music. Kool Herc created a unique sound that kept his audience grooving with a packed house like never before. The Universal Hip Hop Museum highly anticipated grand opening will be August 11, 2024.
