Culture: Hip Hop at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of American History is in the process of launching and hosting "Hip-Hop Won't Stop," the museum's first-ever on-going and evolving exhibit on Hip-Hop culture in the The Smithsonian.

Ice T., Russell Simmons, Crazy Legs and others will hold a press conference on Feb. 28 at the New York Hilton, where a list of artists that will assist the museum in documenting Hip-Hop's 30-year history will be announced.

The project will trace Hip-Hop from it's origins in the 1970's to its current global domination.

The exhibit will showcase a permanent collection, with various artists donating an artifact to the exhibit. Vinyl records, handwritten lyrics, boom boxes, clothing, microphones and other artifacts will be featured.
