Get Your Tickets! Hip Hop Karaoke Championship

Hip-Hop Karaoke is special to me. I hit up my first Hip-Hop Karaoke last spring. It was a Biggie Tribute. The energy on stage and in the crowd was Unbelievable, as BIG might say. It was truly a spiritual experience; one of the best shows I've ever been to. The thing is, Hip-Hop Karaoke is not like regular karaoke. There is no monitor with a bouncing ball showing you the lyrics. There is simply you, the mic, a legit stage and hype man, and a crowd that loves hip-hop as much as you. And because you love it like that, you know the words by heart. The event is full of heart. It's exhilarating.

Anyways, since the Biggie Tribute I've been fortunate enough to attend a few more HHK sessions including the Brooklyn Semi-finals a couple months ago. Since then, the Manhattan semis have also taken place and on Jan 29th, the semi-finalists from both sides of the bridge will battle it out at Irving Plaza. Judges include Big Daddy Kane and Buckshot. It promises to be, well, the illest.
