Southside represent! You’ll be finally be able to show the world your skills at Brisbane’s first rap karaoke night.

Southside Tea Room — the geniuses behind the ever-popular Disney Karaoke nights — are turning Morningside into a Gangsta’s Paradise for one night only.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a rapper, but you can’t actually write your own rhymes, this is your time to shine.

You’ll be able to rap along with all the classics, from Kanye and Jay Z to Biggy and Tupac. If you rate yourself as a rapper and a singer, why not try your hand at a Drake number?

If you’ve got any requests, you can hit up the event organisers on Facebook and let them know, so they can adjust their song list accordingly.

There’ll also be prizes for the best dressed, eats from the Red Robin Supper Truck and drinks at the Death Valley Bar, and even a temporary tattoo parlour, so you can get yourself inked for that extra hip hop credibility before you rock the mic.

Straight Outta Southside will be held at the Southside Tea Room (639 Wynnum Road, Morningside) on Saturday 8 July at 8pm.

Entry is free, but you’ll have to reserve your spot, and if it’s anything like their Disney Karaoke nights, it’ll fill up fast — head to from 9am Wednesday 14 June to secure your spot.
