H2C2 Hip Hop Culture Center In HarlemThe  mission of the Hip Hop Culture Center is to provide a state-of-the art community center and historical museum, where Hip Hop can be used as a positive motivator and tool for reaching young people, while at the same time creating cross-generational and cross-cultural understanding.

The Hip Hop Culture Center serves three purposes:

  1. As a fully integrated entertainment and educational complex — a tourist attraction with interactive exhibits, performances, and symposiums.
  2. As a meeting place for new and existing youth outreach programs of the Hip Hop Culture Center.
  3. As a think tank and archival center for Hip Hop history and culture.
