Think you can rap? Prove it at this popular karaoke night
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.
I absolutely love Hip Hop Karaoke, gives a real feel of what Hip Hop was always supposed to be about. Completely multicultural and generational, peace, love, unity and having fun. Get there early, getting in after 8:45pm can be difficult as the Karaoke section starts at 9pm and from there it's one in one out and some of the more pleasant door staff have left. They can be the nights biggest down fall but that is more down to Westminster Council and the venue than the night itself and is less of a problem when HHK visit Jazz Cafe for example.
The fact that this event is rammed every week is testament to how good a night out it is for £5. Doors actually open from 6:30pm, so the best thing to do is get there early, get stamped (you can't buy tickets for anyone in advance), grab something to eat and come back by 8:30pm to find a good spot where you can see.

I'm sure the night is good but the door staff were rude and obnoxious they didn't allow be back in to the venue because I popped out for too long making me miss my brothers birthday celebration.
