Teufel: allow a Canadian to break down the science of the French press article: Translation below. -rDJ


What are a handful of youngsters with a “rapper” look and sweaty palms doing on a Thursday in front of a Tribeca club? Just like they do once a month at the Knitting Factory, they’ve come to take up the challenge of Hip Hop Karaoke. On the menu: hundreds of available titles – strictly hip-hop (Biggie, Gang Starr, Jay-Z, Noreaga, Pharcyde…), a DJ for the instrumental tracks and the scratching, a hype-man MC (and sometime backup man in a pinch), a real concert stage, and a warm and supportive crowd.

Invented in 2004 by three friends who were inspired by the success of heavy metal karaoke, the concept itself invites curiosity. A bit of frivolity in the all-too-serious world of hip-hop? “At first it was a mix of fans and people who were just messing around. But now we’re seeing that the level’s really been raised: more and more, people are preparing two, three weeks in advance before coming to perform. It’s become a bit more professional,” explains Jay, one of the three creators of these events.

The petrified kids nudged on stage by their friends and the groups of drunken girls intoning Salt-N’-Pepa’s “Shoop” have therefore given way to a thoroughly convincing group of performers. Some of them succeed in “owning the song”, as they say on
“Nouvelle Star” -- mind you, don’t start breaking out your own material; the event isn’t meant as a springboard for aspiring rappers. With an altogether American ease, that innate showbiz instinct born from who-knows-where, the performances follow one another over the course of two hours, and go a lot way toward discouraging the timid. Karaoke has its own Darwinism…

Naturally, it’s bound to be less hilarious [??!!], but as Jay says, “it’s almost its own hip-hop scene entirely, in a city where hip-hop tickets have become beyond most budgets. People here take the show almost more seriously that the actual rappers, who are known for showing up two hours late to play a 40-minute gig.” For the real second-rate stuff, you’re better off sticking with Chinese-restaurant karaoke with 3 grams of alcohol in your bloodstream….

First it's Shoop. Soon it'll be Whoomp, and then HHK as we know it will be over.

That song just encourages girls to stay in the girl ghetto of silliness, if I may say so. Only once in awhile do new girls do like Susanna and her Player's Ball crew and choose a good song. That's how you rep the ladies.

my choice for an add to the list for the ladies, is the not tonight remix by lil' kim, angie mar, left eye, da brat and missy. That's a quality crew track for the ladies without any of the cheesiness.

That would be hot. I'm probably alone on this one, but my pick would be The Jump Off.

1) lil kim - queen bitch
2) monie love - it's a shame
3) antionnette - i got an attitude

Oh, I totally would do Shake Ya Ass. But not this month. Do I need to preface it with a speech about how I do, in fact, respect the ladies? ;)

The Heritage accumulating is new to rolex replica Bamford and was alone appear beforehand this year. As its name acutely suggests, it’s aggressive by the looks of best replica watches uk. As an example, one of the beforehand Heritage watches is the Bamford Heritage MilSub that’s clearly aggressive by the best MilSub fabricated by Rolex in the Seventies for the British Ministry of Defense. It’s a admirable alliance of breitling replica the old and the new.
