"NYC's First Annual Hip-Hop Karaoke Championships"

from - by MetroGnome

In honor of all the Hip-Hop artists that have graced the public with timeless music, fans with a penchant for performance now have the opportunity to watch twelve finalists compete for Karaoke supremacy.

It all began at a club on NYC's Lower East Side, but drew enough attention and following where an upgrade to the Knitting Factory ensued. Now, after a year of tense rhyme competition, only the most serious and talented fans will be on board to show and prove come January 25th at the Highline Ballroom.

The twelve contestants are Axiom, Camille, Chef, Dashaun, Doni D, Elizabeth, K-Dot, Pancho, RDJ, Robin, Scooter and Shawn J.


Started in December 2004, Hip Hop Karaoke has given thousands of people the opportunity to witness, and participate in, this unique celebration of hip-hop. The event, held monthly at New York's Knitting Factory, has been visited by such luminaries as Jeru the Damaja, Rhymefest and Big Daddy Kane and has performed internationally in such esteemed spots as The Paradiso in Amsterdam. Garnering praise from everyone from Village Voice to XXL Magazine, the event is one-of-a-kind in New York and has quickly become one of the city's most popular nights!
