Hush Hip Hop Tours
Hip-hop is a relatively young genre, but its influence is deeply felt in the City's culture. Hush Hip Hop Tours takes you to the landmarks that put hip-hop on the map, from Harlem to Hollis. Journey to Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens on bus and walking tours that connect elements of the music, like deejaying and emceeing, to particular neighborhoods. Hush also offers the Where Brooklyn At? tour, which highlights places from the lives and lyrics of local stars including Jay-Z and the Notorious B.I.G. The guides know what they're talking about, too: Hip-hop legends Kurtis Blow and Rahiem of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five are among those leading the tours.
