Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) and The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) in celebration of Hip Hop At 50 – Honoring 50 Years of Hip Hop: A Legacy of Rhythm, Revolution, and Soul.

Together with the MTA, UMe has created 80,000 “Metro Cards” available in subway vending locations across New York City. These collectibles feature four generational East Coast hip-hop icons, namely Cam’Ron, LL COOL J, Rakim, and Pop Smoke. The LL COOL J cards are coinciding with the second year of The Rock The Bells festival in Forest Hills, Queens.

Cards can be found across New York City. The LL COOL J cards can be found in Forest Hills at the 71st Ave metro stop in CTR areas N333, N333A, and N333B. In collaboration with the Shoot For The Stars Foundation, the Pop Smoke cards appear at the Canarsie-Rockaway Pkwy stop in CTR area R634, in addition to the New Lots Ave stop in CTR area H041. Vending machines with the Cam’Ron and Rakim cards will be revealed soon.
