Hip Hop Karaoke at the Social

In London its not easy to find a fun, unpretentious and most importantly free night out but I might just have found one! I have to admit when my friend first suggested going to a hip hop karaoke night I wasn't expecting amazing things and was a little apprehensive how much fun it could be, in my mind expecting mainly drunk people taking to the mic in a rather bad attempt of discovering their inner Missy Elliot. But boy was I wrong! Entering the basement of the Social on a Wednesday night is more 8 Mile than average karaoke bar. Squeezed into a small space with people that know their hip hop, the people that take the stage are regulars. They know the lyrics by heart and are here to perform. Its serious stuff and everyone gets totally involved, if someone is doing well the metal walls get a good bashing to show the crowd's sign of approval. Even in the breaks between performers everyone has a good time, here it truly is about hip hop and dancing to it in whatever form you like (although I feel like I need to up my game next time). Its a place where you can have fun even if you aren't a massive hip hop fan and is definitely set to become a new regular going out spot for me, just don't expect me to take the mic!


And here is a little how to guide if you are brave enough to take the mic: http://www.thesocial.com/2011/10/646/

PS: to tie in with the music theme I got a pair of Dr Dre Beats headphones this week from Zalando and I freaking love them, I may be deaf in the future but when everything sounds so brilliant and they actually go with my beloved hats why take my beats off!

Looks to me like a place where a bunch of pretentious wanna-be rappers gather to attempt to woo potential swooning groupies by singing a Karaoke song already written by someone else.
I remember when hip-hop used to be poetry, not this glorification of wealth, intoxication and poverty pimping crap.
