"The artists, groups, deejays, b-boys/girls, graffiti artists and entrepreneurs being inducted have all made significant contributions to the birth, establishment, and advancement of the culture," stated awards show Creator-Executive Producer JT Thompson who serves as Chairman of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum.

The press event was hosted by the legendary Roxanne Shante', who will also serve as the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards Show Host on May 19th.
