Chuck D is elected Chairman of the Celebrity Board of the Universal Hip Hop Museum

The Universal Hip Hop Museum will break new ground in the Bronx in December 2019 and officially open in 2022. Two legendary rappers are already attached to the project.  Hip Hop pioneer Kurtis Blow serves as the Chairman of the Board. Blow, along with UHHM Director Rocky Bucano, announced Public Enemy co-founder Chuck D was elected Chairman of the Celebrity Board for the museum earlier today.

Kurtis Blow states, "Chuck D is one of the most intelligent and well-respected MC’s in the culture of Hip Hop. The credibility he brings to our team is mammoth. He also understands the importance of the Universal Hip Hop Museum, and vows to let the world know via a star-studded celebrity board in the near future. Flame on!!!”

The UHHM has secured $20 million in initial funding. Ralph Appelbaum Associates (The National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution) was enlisted as the interpretive design team. Mike Ford and Hamilton Anderson Associates are the architectural designers.
