Smithsonian collecting hip-hop


madcow writes "Cultural curmudgeons everywhere will likely frown even harder when they read
"For nearly three decades, hip-hop relics such as vinyl records, turntables, microphones and boom boxes have collected dust in boxes and attics.

On Tuesday, owners of such items including pioneering hip-hop artists such as Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and Fab 5 Freddy will blow that dust off and carry them to a Manhattan hotel to turn them over to National Museum of American History officials.""
