Walk This Way Harlem Hip-Hop Walking Tour

by Hush Hip Hop Tours Duration 2h Non-refundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$59

Harlem's been there since long before the “shake” made it trendy. Hit the pavement with a celebrity guide for an insider's look at how hip-hop culture blossomed in this Manhattan 'hood. Pass historic jazz clubs and the landmark Apollo Theater as you uncover this legendary mecca for all things music.

Harlem has been an artistic hub since the Harlem Renaissance and Prohibition, when jazz clubs and speakeasies cropped up along 133rd's so-called “Swing Street”. Meet your guide in the heart of Spanish Harlem – El Barrio – at the Museum of the City of New York. Get an in-depth look at the character and soul of the City that Never Sleeps with photography and exhibits on New York's development, notable personalities and vibrant theatre scene.

Leave the museum behind and head to a gallery of a different flavour, delving into the street art movement at the Graffiti Hall of Fame. Look up at the emblematic “The Spirit of East Harlem” mural, then turn your focus to the sounds of the city. With celebrity guides like founding father of hip-hop Red Alert, Rahiem of Grandmaster Flash, VJ and DJ Ralph McDaniels, and Reggie Reg of the old-school Cash Crew, get behind-the-scenes stories about music in New York that you won't hear anywhere else.

Pass by locations from popular music videos, and learn about the artists who honed their skills on Harlem's streets and stages, from Harlem-born Tupac Shakur, who became the king of West Coast hip-hop, to rap diva Azealia Banks and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.
