Cornell Hip Hop Collection: "Now Scream!"

By - Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Recently, Cornell University’s library launched the first exhibition of the Cornell Hip Hop Collection. I was invited to contribute some notable tags/signatures from my ever growing tag collection. They are now on display at Cornell along with lots of interesting items from their collection. The mission of the Cornell Hip Hop Collection (CHHC) is to collect and make accessible the historical documents of Hip Hop culture, and to ensure their preservation for current and future generations. Since arriving at Cornell in 2007, the CHHC has grown to include more than 50,000 items. Now Scream! is its first comprehensive exhibition. On view are rare and classic vinyl records, photographs, event flyers, live performance and interview recordings, artwork, ephemera, and more, along with many unique Hip Hop artifacts on loan from artists, supporters, and friends. Exhibition on view: April 4, 2013 – February 4, 2014 Hirshland Exhibition Gallery, Carl A.
