Put batteries in that old boom box, grab this nostalgic T-shirt, and cue up some hip-hop classics. In the early years of hip-hop, homemade mix tapes were an important way for emerging rappers and DJs to collaborate, compete, and promote their music. They're also how fans of all music genres shared their favorite tracks—and impressed their crushes—in the years before digital audio and streaming music.

Museum Story

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) hosted its inaugural Hip-Hop Block Party in 2022, to celebrate the first anniversary of the release of the Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap. More than 8,000 people attended in person and thousands more watched online. The event featured performances by local and national talent, presentations and activities that explored hip-hop music's origins and cultural influence for 12 hours. In 2023, the tradition returned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop.
