My favorite past time in this great city of New York involves taking a classic hip hop instrumental and tearing a down the stage. If you haven't been before, stop playing yourself and come out to Hip Hop Karaoke. After the first time I touched the stage back in the LES some years ago I knew I would never be the same. The energy of being up there with your favorite song blasting out the speakers is something that's hard to explain. Great MCs like OC, Rhymefest, Tek from Smif N Wesson and Big Daddy Kane have all come down to bless the stage and jam with us.
It's a family vibe and we normally do it every month. Now that it's back I would love to see all of yall come out and do your best Wu Tang song or maybe a little Salt N Pepa is what you need. Whatever your fix I'll see you on Friday.
