About Us

This is the home of the original world famous Detroit Hip Hop Shop open from 1993 to 1997 by fashion designer Maurice Malone. Don't be fooled by imitators, The Hip Hop Shop does not currently have a brick & mortar shop, we are Online Only!

Once located on the Westside of Detroit, Michigan's 7-Mile Road, The Hip Hop Shop was a boutique and worldwide Mecca for Hip Hop Culture opened by Maurice Malone in 1993.  It was famous for its Rap Battles which took place every Saturday afternoon from 5pm to 7pm.  The battles often included in their youth, Eminem, members of D-12, Slum Village, producer J Dilla and other Detroit Hip Hop Legends.  The battles that took place also help to inspire the movie "8-Mile" starring Eminem.
