It was all love at Atlantucky Brewing in downtown Atlanta. The National Hip-Hop Museum held its 2022 induction ceremony in the ATL, and Hip-Hop legends were on-hand to bask in the adulation and admiration of what they've accomplished in their storied careers.
Hosted by Master Gee of The Sugarhill Gang and ROCK THE BELL's own Grandmaster Caz, the 2022 ceremony celebrated the legacies of Queens icon Kool G Rap, "The Ruler" Slick Rick, sophisticated rap stars Whodini, the legendary U.T.F.O., Speech of Arrested Development and superproducer/rapper Diamond D. Adding to the prestige of the day, Atlantucky Brewing's gorgeous facility is owned by Hip-Hop's own Nappy Roots.
Check out some photos from the bash:
