Hip hop is invading the Queens Library next month.

Each day in May, there will be a free hip hop-related event, performance or jam at one or more of the borough’s library branches.

“Queens is the cradle of hip hop, urban fashion, def poetry and everything that goes with it,” the Library said in a statement,” announcing the events, called “31 Days of Non-Stop Hip Hop.”

Queens Library also announced its “Elements of Hip Hop” project, which will help preserve the borough’s collective urban music history.

The events will include a Break Dance Expo, a Family Day Jam, a Graffiti Art Workshop and more:
