It's a (white) rap

Vanilla Ice not likely to make an appearance tonight.

Nostalgic for the days when Eminem ruled the Top 40? Get your white boy rapper fix at the Middle East Downstairs tonight for its "Irish Hip-Hop Throwdown" featuring Irish MCs Rob Kelley and Sullee (of VH1's 'The (White) Rapper Show').

Boston native Danny Jamieson, of "the Real World: Austin", and former LFO frontman Rich Cronin will be on hand as hosts. Some of the proceeds will benefit the Rich Cronin Hope Foundation, which supports leukemia research.

Show starts at 8 p.m., and $25 will get you in the door. No word on whether there will be a pop-meets-hip-hop collobo.
