This partnership will continue that mission by fostering international relationships throughout the European Union, UK, and other countries in discussions around the world. The partnership includes launching The HHHOF’s Hip Hop Music & Culture Festival in association with Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment in Nijmegen and Amsterdam, Netherlands in March 2017. The event will feature two-days of Music, Art, Culture, DJ & B-Boy/Girls Dance Exhibitions, Music Industry Symposiums and Master Classes, emerging Artists Talent Showcases, the Legends & Icons Concert Series, and Community Outreach & Educational activities to unify and serve the cities and youth that love and are influenced by Hip Hop music & culture. “This has been years in the making, and we are proud to be the first Hip Hop museum on the planet to launch an international music festival, traveling art exhibit, and educational outreach collaboration to give back to the communities we serve and the people who buy the music and support the culture worldwide”, stated JT Thompson, founder Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum and Creator of The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show that first premiered on the BET Cable Network in the 1990s.
The partnership will also formally bring Hip Hop impresario and historian Cis Van Beers into the Hip Hop Hall of Fame’s team serving as a Co-Chair of the Museum’s International Committee, as the HHHOF brand prepares to launch its national and international Hip Hop Music & Culture Festival Tours in 2017. “It is a great honor for me and Hip Hop Golden Age to partner long term with the Official Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum in NYC, as it expands. We are Classic Hip Hop era historians and appreciate Hip Hop music & culture around the world’, stated Cis Van Beers, founder and CEO of Hip Hop Golden Age. Hip Hop Golden Age will also be a contributor to The HHHOF upcoming book in the works entitled ‘Hip Hop Who’s Who’, that will start at the birth of Hip Hop, cover its influences, and go all the way to the present day becoming a living Fortune 500+ of Hip Hop Music & Culture’s All Time Greats.
