Rap icon Kurtis Blow, most famous for his hit “The Breaks,” is set to co-host the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame Awards (HHHOF) in June. This will be the first broadcast of the awards show since it aired in national and international syndication. It will also appear on the BET Cable Network.
This year’s show, which will take place in New York, will feature a week of activities leading up to the televised program. Among the events will be several community outreach projects, a VIP reception, artist parties and programs honoring industry pioneers and New York City leaders.
The week will end with the unveiling of the Manhattan Home of the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame Museum & Entertainment Complex, which will introduce over 120 jobs to the community, according to a press release. The new museum is expected to generate an estimated $400 million in revenue.
