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.    


Reserve your seats now for February 28th with Steve Lobel. The show always sells out!  Reserve tix >

TAKE IT PERSONAL will consist of famous hip hop artists either performing monologues, sharing personal stories, performing their songs, or being interviewed on their lives for source material.  A group of talented improvisers will then use that material to create a totally made up show. You will be amazed on how the hip hop artist’s story is brought to life right in front of your eyes. “Watching an improv show is like seeing someone walk over the tight rope without the net… But way funnier,” said Cipha Sounds.
