Owner description: There is nowhere else you can rub shoulders with and listen to real insider stories from hip hop heavyweights and living legends like Grandmaster Caz, Kurtis Blow, Raheim of the Furious Five and Reggie Reg. …and what other experience gives you access to the secret sites that have played a critical role in shaping the hip hop culture? So, roll out with us. Other tour companies only show you the typical tourist-y spots and blindly pass over the rich, vibrant landmarks that give NYC its character. Our hip-hop tours are the best way for art and music lovers to visit sites you probably would have never visited on your own and experience sights, sounds and stories you won’t forget. Kick it with our crew and you won’t be disappointed. We’re all about preserving the roots of hip hop culture and that means sharing it with the world – and with people like you. For over a decade, we have been the leader in providing authentic insight into New York City and its impact on musical innovation. New York City is the undisputed Birthplace of Hip Hop culture and our tour guides are the originators! Let us show you the city’s hidden gems through the hip-hop lens.

The Birthplace of Hip-Hop tour was incredible. Caz was incredible as our guide. I plan on trying to make it to each of the tours when I make it back to NY

“Act like you know - you must learn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I'm a music teacher here in NYC. I've taken students on this wonderful tour a number of times and will keep going back. Rap is the only global genre of music for which one can still go and see where (like, the actual building where) it was born and learn about it from the original artists. Hush is an amazing company keeping the spirit of old-school (REAL old school, pre-rap-record) hip-hop alive by sharing it with others. Their tours are "don't miss" experiences in NYC.

“Hip Hop Hooray”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This was the most amazing tour I have ever had the privilege of going on. As a long-time hip hop lover, seeing the places where the music began was beyond words. Riding through the Bronx with the Furious Five on the stereo -- and Grandmaster Caz on the Mic right next to me was something I will never forget. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR. I can't wait to go again.
