The most beautifullest thing in this world....

Another fantastic installment of Hip Hop Karaoke...

Thanks to everyone who came out, and thanks to everyone who blessed the stage... Happy b-day to all the people there celebrating with us...

After Wex and I did a little opening medley (mp3), Tanya came up and did her thing on "Oooh"... Not to be outdone by his lady, Jon slayed "Get Money". Lil Kim's verse will never be the same.

Sooo many tremendous performances.. Lyrical Arsonist nailed "Bombs Over Baghdad"..Kev killed "Dwyck"..James flawlessly dropped two Outkast gems ("Da Art Of Storytellin' Pt I", and "Skew It On The Bar-b")..Anthony might as well have been the 18th letter himself after "I Know You Got Soul"...Rebecca "Work(ed) It" better than Missy...Charlie channeled his best Nate Dogg on "XXXplosive".. Gusto and Steve had a touching tribute to Jay Dee (RIP) with "Find A Way"..Just and co. debuted "Daytona 500"...Avi kicked the hungriest version of "Time's Up" I've ever seen..DLJ did his thing on "One More Chance", and featured a special mysterious lady from the crowd who jumped up to slay the last verse..Donna got her instinctive travels on with "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo"..TJ and Will did their best AZ and Nas with "Life's A Bitch"..Van educated on the "Next Movement".. Jessica not only killed "Hypnotize" lyrically, but also broke out some dance moves the likes I've never seen before...Danielle, a female after my own heart, name dropped the "purple tape" and killed "Incarcerated Scarfaces"..Jim did a little late night "Move Bitch" ditty...Sheila and co. brought our own Jay Newman on stage for "Shoop" (I'm hoping there's video of the girls who came on stage and freaked it).. Kenya did it all on stage with her rendition of JJ Fad's "Supersonic"..Darryl made his return and blessed us with "Touch The Sky"..D had his moment with the ladies (and one lady inparticular) with "Bonita Applebaum".. Goodwin got some 2am shit off his chest with "Hate Me Now".. And Dan, Brian, and Jay kicked a version of "Ha" that will live forever in our hearts.

In honor of Turin (HHK had more viewers though), the Gold medal for last night has to go to Robert Downey Jr (Dan) for murdering "Woohah" (mp3).. I mean, what can you say? Just listen for yourself.

Right behind him on the scorecards was Dashaun doing "Bring The Pain". (mp3). Dude kiiiiiiiiiiiilled it...Think of anything that sucks...This was the opposite.

Nothing better than a female breaking it down about their own kind.. Rosey morphed into Guru with her rendition of "Ex Girl To The Next" (mp3) (with a great acapella at the end).

James and Eric debuted what I feel to be the most difficult song on our list, "Luchini" (mp3) (the only words I ever remember are "sippin Amaretta").. Even came on staged decked out like Geeche and Sonny..

Now in the wee wee hours of the morning (2:30am), the night closed out with Steve and Van doing "Gas Face".. Upon further review of the audio, we're convinced Van is Zev Luv X (mp3).

We also had our resident cameraman Rick finally come out from the other side of the lens, and drop "Scenario" with Derege... Hopefully there's more to come...

Honorable mentions to Brian for "PSA", Ty for "It Was A Good Day", Emily and Beth with "99 Problems", Mike with "Humpty Dance", D for "Warning", Dan with "The World Is Yours", Todd with "Juicy", Jamal with "Ten Crack Commandments", Angela with "Doo Wop", and Saurav with "Check The Rhime"..

Thanks again!

Yesterday was my first time at HipHop Karaoke and I had a blast! I'm sad that I had to leave early (that's what happens when you live in Jersey) month I'll stay until the end.

Mr. "Robert Downey Jr" - you were by far my favorite of the night :)

I am such a hip hop karaoke fan now. Friday was my first time coming and it was pretty interesting!!

I'm not a rapper, otherwise I'd be looking forward to performing next month. (Instead I'll be watching-- and trying to find that guy who works at the popcorn store in Times Square who totally dipped out after his performance and didn't get my number. :)

But I'll be the first one to sign up if you ever have an R&B Karaoke night. It's too bad that traditional karaoke spots don't take themselves this seriously...
