Thursday was a huge day for Hip Hop! LL Cool J, Nas, Fat Joe, and other legends were on hand for the groundbreaking of The Universal Hip Hop Museum at the Bronx Point.

Nas, LL Cool J, and Fat Joe shared remarks during the cermony.

Some shared what Hip Hop means to them and others shared some insightful and heartfelt stories about the Hip Hop legends that inspired them.

Grandmaster Flash also spoke on how he invented scratching.

Judging by the shout-outs that the speakers were giving there was a lot of Hip Hop royalty at the event, and you can see a sense of pride and accomplishment on everyone’s face.

This was a beautiful moment for Hip Hop.

I can’t wait until the grand opening of The Universal Hip Hop Museum.
