The Social , Fitzrovia Thursday December 3 2015 - Thursday December 10 2015

Think you can rap? Prove it at this popular karaoke night, where you can flex your rhyming muscles to your favourite hip hop cuts from over the decades.

If you've ever fancied yourself as a Missy, Eminem, Beastie Boy/Girl or you think you could give Snoop a run for his dough, here's your chance to act out some rap fantasies. And hey, what could be easier than trying to rap in front of loads of strangers? Don’t worry: this long-running night is actually hella fun. There’s a huge list of classics and lesser-known jams to choose from, and all songs are rated for rhyming difficulty. Ease yourself in with a mellow Tribe Called Quest number or battle with a frenetic Busta Rhymes track if you’re feeling baller.

Love hip hop and love Thursday nights in Central? HHK is the place to be. I have occasionally attended for a few years now and the vibe and enjoyment remain the same. If you come early enough (which I recommend as you may have to end up waiting in the bar upstairs), you can sign up to perform anything from Lauryn Hill to Dr Dre. It's always packed which makes it what it is. The bar offers a Jamaican special cocktail 'Rum & Ting' as well as all the usual offerings. Whether you're performing or just there to watch, you will always have a good time!

I have only been to this event once, a few years ago and had a thoroughly good time.  The fact that the event is still running after all these years is testament to how good the event is. It's so refreshing to be in an atmosphere where you can sing (or watch people sing) the songs you love (rather than the cheesy stuff you normally get in a Karaoke bar). Who knows...if I get any more practise I may try out for X-factor singing some RnB!
