There will be a “Place of Invention” exhibit at the Smithsonian, in Washington, D.C. and the Bronx will be placed in high light for it’s role in the creation of hip-hop.

I think more cities should be recognized for such a powerful movement. Undoubtedly, hip-hop is a major genre in this age. Drop down bottom for more on the exhibit.
