Tonight, for one night only, the Filmore New York at Irving Plaza will host a hip-hop karaoke championship. Do you like to rap? Do you like to perform karaoke? If you answered yes to both of these questions avoid the Filmore tonight.
This particular event is for spectators only. Apparently karaoke rap battles have been happening in the toughest boroughs of NYC (Manhattan and Brooklyn) and the hardest of the hard have triumphed and now will face off in a "regional battle reminiscent of rap's old days."
These hardcore rappers will have the lyrics scrolled in front of them on a big screen while they are cheered on with hired entourages and even a "hype man." I'm about 90% sure this is what it will look like:
I highly recommend checking this championship battle out. Highly.
