The A&E Network has announced a new series Hip Hop Treasures following the search for lost Hip Hop memorabilia. The series will be led by LL Cool J and Ice T.
The rap icons, field collectors and museum curators tell the story of some of Hip Hop’s greatest artists and the items they made famous. The Notorious B.I.G.’s iconic jersey from the “Juicy” video, Flavor Flav’s clocks, DMX’s Aaliyah car are a few examples of items the series will highlight.
Viewers can expect to hear from big names such as DMC, CeeLo Green, Fat Joe, Master P, Soulja Boy, Naughty by Nature’s Treach and many more.
With hip hop marking its 50th anniversary this year, the series premieres at 10 p.m. August 12 on A&E.
Hip Hop Treasures is produced by Pulse Films and Rock The Bells for A&E Network. Executive producers for Pulse Films are Erica Hanson, Tracey Baker-Simmons, Andrena Hale and Mira King. Paradise Gray and Pete Nice are executive producers.
