Hip Hop museum opens in Queens
Thursday afternoon saw the grand opening of a new hip hop museum in Hollis, Queens. The museum is located in the Hollis Famous Burger eatery. With the purchase of a one dollar burger, guests can check out over one hundred hip hop artifacts, making this, by far, the best value in the city of New York.
Orville Hall, the eatery’s owner, claimed that Hollis is “our Motown, our Nashville, our Beale Street.” The museum honors the neighborhood’s place in rap history, from LL Cool J to Ja Rule to Irv Gotti. DMC showed up at the museum’s grand opening to drop a few lines.
