CHUCK D JOINS HIP-HOP MUSEUM CELEBRITY BOARD

Hip-hop legend and co-founder of Public Enemy, Chuck D has been elected as the Chairman of the Celebrity Board for the Universal Hip Hop Museum (UHHM). 

The UHHM is slated to break ground in December 2019 and is scheduled to open its doors in 2022. 

Commenting on joining the UHHM Chuck D said “My life has been dedicated to the hip-hop genre, both serving it as an artist and curating it to share with others, and I want to carry that work over to the Universal Hip Hop Museum.  The museum is what we need to organize as a collective and present its history while having a hand in its future.”

UHHM Chairman of the Board, Kurtis Blow, added “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!!!”

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