Universal Hip Hop Museum Returns After Seven-Month Closure

Prime Minister Pete Nice was a member of the late 80s, early 90s Hip-Hop Group 3rd Bass, and has tremendous reverence for the origins of the music and culture the world knows as HipHop.

It all got started in the Bronx in parks, rec centers and local clubs.

Nice is co-curator of the new exhibit at the Universal Hip-Hop Museum's Revolution of Hip Hop at the Bronx Terminal. It's a pop-up sneak preview exhibition of what will eventually be the museum's permanent home, which will be nearby at the Bronx Point Development.

The Revolution of Hip Hop reopens November 5, after being closed since March due to COVID.

"We're blessed to be able to do this," said Nice, who noted that some cultural institutions have not re-opened, some even in danger of closing.

To keep things safe, visitors will pass through a health screener, which was donated by Soter Technologies. Sensors detect temperature, heart and respiration rates. No more than 20 people, and that includes staff, will be allowed in the exhibit at any given time.

"That's enough for people to feel that they have enough space not to be in anybody's way, just another layer of protection," said Rocky Bucano, executive director of the museum.
