If you are lucky and make it to NYC one day you should definitely check out the one and only OFFICIAL Hip Hop Sightseeing Tour by Hush Tours. It was a great experience and definetely worth the money!!!
Our tourguide Grandmaster Caz, one of the founders and pioneers of Hip Hop culture (and well known as member of the Cold Crush Brothers and obviously ghostwriter for the Sugarhill Gang)showed us the birthplace of Hip Hop in the Bronx (1520 Sedgwick), the Apollo Theatre, Rucker Park in Harlem and many other places that made it into the history books.
Don´t wonder - it´s an interactive tour! All the participants took part in a breakdance show which was presented by Kid Glyde and had the chance to either rap, beatbox or present any of their hip hop related skills.
Definitely a great experience if you are into Hip Hop culture!
As I´m a beatmaker I used the NY trip and spread some of my beats - I handed out a USB stick full of beat snippets to Grandmaster Caz and some of his co-guides and I made sure that Caz shouted me out - thx for that!
Here´s a glimpse of what you can expect:
