A replica of the studio is opening in New York, with the exhibition and pop up taking place from October 20 to 23. Titled the Roc96, the exhibit will be a replica of the Studio B Control Room at D&D Studios, which closed in 2014.
The Reasonable Doubt pop up will feature a number of items for purchase including scarves; wooden headphones with the 20th anniversary logo; Reasonable Doubt turntables; “Can’t Knock The Hustle” duffle bags and more.
Burke did something similar to the forthcoming Reasonable Doubt exhibit earlier this year, when he opened a pop up shop in Los Angeles that replicated Jay Z’s Brooklyn apartment.
