NEW YORK (AP) — Organizers say the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum has found a home in Manhattan. And its awards show will return to television this year after more than a decade.
The Wall Street Journal says the museum plans include a concert lounge and television studios. The company’s business development manager, Bobby Fisher, says the address won’t be released until July because the deal is still being completed.
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards television show was broadcast by the cable network BET in the 1990s, but the awards were no longer televised after murders of hip-hop stars. The Hall of Fame last inducted honorees in 1997.
The awards show will return to television in November, broadcast from the Apollo Theater.
