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.
