Celebrating 5 Years of HHK – special September takeover at The Social
“London’s like a jungle sometimes but nights like this will keep you from going under!”
Putting a fresh twist on the ancient art of karaoke, Hip-Hop Karaoke lets you get on the mic and act out your rap fantasies to the fullest, whether that includes teaming up with friends to rock through a Wu-Tang jam, giving a new gender twist to a Salt-N-Pepa standard, living the lyrical highlife like Jay-Z, celebrating summertime with Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince or acting all crazy like ODB. HHK now is now five years old and going from strength to strength with each event, to mark the special occasion we are going weekly in September with the crew taking over every Thursday down Little Portland Street.
With over 150 songs to choose from, the night’s hosts ensure that the entertainment flows smoothly and in good spirits. The Hip-Hop Karaoke set-up includes everything that an authentic hip-hop live show does, including show deejay and event organiser Rob Pursey (www.southernhospitality.co.uk) spinning instrumental vinyl versions for people to rhyme over and lyrical help when needed! All of this, with the added bonus of a cravat-wearing compere, the incomparable and now legendary Marc Choice and London legend Bobby Champagne Jnr. on the mic.
Hip Hop Karaoke is based around regular events at The Social (www.thesocial.com) where for 5 years running, each and every event has been a roadblock and has seen many an amateur and more than a few celebs and semi-pros try their hand. Hip Hop Karaoke has also performed at Glastonbury four years running, Bestival in ’08 and ’09, as well as Lovebox Weekender, Gatecrasher Summer Sound System and many more.
