The Smithsonian Institution has announced a plan to create an exhibition about hip-hop at its world renowned museum. According to the Associated Press:

"The project will gather artifacts, oral histories and other multimedia components tracing hip-hop's evolution from a Bronx pastime in the 1970s to today's global cultural juggernaut. It's projected to cost as much as $2 million and take up to five years to finish.

"...the curator's central challenge will be putting together a musical exhibit requiring multimedia components rather than merely stationary objects â€" and putting it together to tell an interesting story."

Hip-hop icons including Grandmaster Flash, Ice-T and Russell Simmons have already donated items. Stats for Smithsonian Plans Hip-Hop Exhibit Trending: Older & Mild
