U.S. Post Office releasing Forever Hip Hop stamps on July 1


You probably never thought of being a stamp collector but they could change as the United States Post Office will be releasing a new Forever Hip Hop stamp. The sheet of 20 stamps will be sold for $11 and will feature the four elements of Hip Hop, MCing (rapping), B-boying (break dancing), DJing, and graffiti art. The stamp is the work of photographer Cade Martin and Art director Antonio Alcalá who designed the stamps to appear in motion with a red, yellow, and green tint. The post office has been celebrating people, events, and locations since 1847 that have had a monumental impact on American culture.
