London's original hip-hop karaoke night!

The next Hip-Hop Karaoke London night is Thursday May 18th. Check the song list towards the end of the site - lots of great new songs added!

Remember, there’s free Tiger beer and prizes (CDs, records, DVDs, t-shirts) for all who perform, plus the best performer on the night gets an extra special bag of goodies courtesy of the fine karaoke-loving folks over at Lewis Recordings.

Just remember to get down to The Social (5 Little Portland Street - Oxford Circus tube) early and sign-up early as performances run on a strictly first come first performing basis. Honestly, if you don't get there early and sign up early then you're not going to be able to perform - sorry!

Full list of songs further down the website - new additions coming soon.

In New York anytime soon? Be sure to check out the original Hip-Hop Karaoke night in Manhattan. Details here.


(Note: New pictures and a re-designed website coming soon!)

Pictures from the first night below.

The only Hip-Hop Karaoke host with a cravat

Kate and Dominik Diamond just lose it (that darn party hat gets everywhere)

Dr Matt - smooth operator

Feeling satisfaction from the karaoke crowd reaction

Real girls rap to 'Halftime'

MC James Le Benz

Old Boys putting in work

That darn party hat lurking again

Deep concentration

The going rate for sporting a Lewis Recordings t-shirt? £20. Cashback!

Double trouble

Doin' it... in a broad northern accent. (Note: This guy holds the record for most beer tokens procured from one performance.)

The Old Boy Allstars quite literally stumbling and slurring their way through 'Still Tippin''

Move the crowd

The people's champ with his goody bag prize
