Hip Hop is growing close to my heart.

I have developed a profound respect for the wordsmithery required to put together an outstanding track.

Conversations with Hip Hop artists are always lyric-based for me and Dr Tasty, aka Morgan Kelly, has been on fire lately.

The Summer of 2018/2019 saw her perform her first gigs, with each performance growing progressively in confidence and energy.

Tasty writes mad verses and I'm super pumped to see Morgan return to the stage at The Pier Hotel on Saturday, May 11, from 8.30pm in the front bar.

Tasty won't be alone, and I'm absolutely rapt to welcome Kalgoorlie-based artist MissGenius to our fair shores. MissGenius is old school and her word play is impressive.

I first met MG in Kalgoorlie after she supported Grand Casual and The Tapping Stickz during the Kalgoorlie leg of the Esperance-Goldfields WAM tour.

Her first performance blew our minds and, since then, MG has racked up some crazy gigs and released some stellar material.

But don't just take my word for it.

Be sure to check out her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MissGenius1994/ for the full lowdown.

On the hunt to round out the line-up, I got lucky.

Altty - one third of well-established Perth Hip Hop act The Manhattan Project - has recently moved back to Esperance, which was fortuitous for sure.

Altty joins the line-up, adding another jewel into the crown of what is set to be an already banging evening.

And to round it out, we have local DJ Sheldon Broughton on the decks for all your evening fills.

Be sure to get along and treat yourself at The Pier Hotel front bar Saturday, May 11, from 8.30pm.

The event will be free entry for all.

Grand Casual have just celebrated a super fun week in the studio in Perth before performing at the Beaufort Street Beaufort St Songwriters' Club.
