The forthcoming Universal Hip Hop Museum in New York City has announced it plans to open a “metaverse” museum prior to its brick-and-mortar building, in partnership with Microsoft. The museum plans to showcase objects from its collection and possibly incorporate NFTs and live performances into the experience.
The birthplace of hip-hop, the Bronx, NY, will have its own museum in approximately two years when the construction of the two-floor Universal Hip-Hop Museum is completed. According to CBS News, the borough that started the genre that is a multi-billion dollar business will be able to showcase items collected over the years to display in the upcoming museum.
