Cipha Sounds’ Hip Hop Improv   

TAKE IT PERSONAL Will Feature Hip Hop’s Elite Each Show
 

Take it Personal

New York, NY, February 26, 2014 – On Friday, February 21, 2014 NYC Harlem rapper Vado stopped by Friday evening as the featured guest in The Hip Hop Improv Show – TAKE IT PERSONAL presented by Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theatre and school in NYC. Improvisers from Cipha Sounds’ team A Tribe Called YES  reenacted stories originally told by Vado.

During the show, Vado tells an unforgettable story of how he would have gotten away with a check-cashing scheme if he hadn’t fallen asleep outside of the store. “My brother Vado came through and did exactly what I asked him to do…told some dope real life truthful stories, and let down his rapper guard, and really talked about himself,” said Cipha Sounds.        

 

Music was provided by DJ Drewski of Hot 97 and Sirius XM. Special guests included Keith Nelson (AllHipHop.com), Jakk Doe (JakkDoe.com), Dominican Drew (Hot 97), Techie (XXL), Willy Dope and Gif (Par-City), and more. TAKE IT PERSONAL will continue every Friday at the legendary UCB Theater.
