Let’s make something clear right up front: some of the most important places in hip hop history are pretty rough. Rappers have never been shy about drug deals, street violence and poverty.

Rappers take us on a journey through our headphones, but if you find yourself in NYC, make sure to visit these 8 hip hop meccas.
