UK Launch Party at The Jump Off
I’ll be over in the UK next week for the launch of the book back in the homeland, and am honored that my good friends Harry and Ara at The Jump Off are throwing the official launch party for the book. The Jump Off, for the uninitiated, is the U.K.’s premier hip hop event. Part club night, part hip hop as sports entertainment show, there isn’t anything else quite like it either side of the Atlantic. As one as hosting one of the most competitive MC battles on the planet, each monthly night features a host of different competitions and events back to back from the ever broadening spectrum of hip hop entertainment. This month there’s a fashion show, photo shoot with the unstoppable Mr Paul H, jokes from comedian Slim and, in tune with the Launch, a B-Boy ‘Biters’ Battle. Goody bags go to the first 200 on the door courtesy of Hip Hop Connection, Touch, Jelly Belly, Penguin and Jump Off TV and copies of the book will be given away throughout the night.
The Jump Off takes place at Astoria 2, 165 Charing Cross Road, this Bank Holiday Monday 05 May 2008, the doors open at 8pm and tickets are Â£6 in advance or Â£10 Door.
