The Global Day of Hip Hop will kick off in the Bronx.
Furthermore, XXL states that the event will include a proclamation ceremony, street renaming ceremony, and community block party.
“We are thrilled to unveil Hip Hop Boulevard at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in The Bronx, the birthplace of hip hop. The Bronx is an iconic, internationally renowned hip hop destination, the home of a once rebellious art form that has, over generations, become a global powerhouse. To designate this area as a landmark and celebrate this occasion with the pioneers who started it all—many of whom still hold close ties to this community—is a remarkable and historic moment for our borough” – Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr via XXL
