MC Nelson teams up with a host of talent from across the country for a unique tour celebrating Britain’s up and coming hip hop, grime and R&B talent. 

Liverpool rapper MC Nelson has joined up with a host of talent from around the country as part of the Welcome To My City Tour.

The five city tour finds Nelson alongside Manchester’s Vanessa Maria, London’s Jerome Thomas, Southampton’s SVGA and Birmingham’s Lady Sanity share the bill, with each performer headlining in their hometown.

Vanessa Maria presents a hybrid of trap tinged R&B with ethereal synth-soaked dream pop. Jerome Thomas is somewhat genre-defying, sampling everything from soul and jazz to jungle, R&B and hip hop. 23 year old SVGA delivers a blend of soulful vocals with rap, reggae and classic R&B. Lady Sanity, meanwhile, takes influence from talents such as Lauryn Hill, A Tribe Called Quest and Ms Dynamite.

MC Nelson, of course, needs no introduction to regular Planet Slop readers, and consistently amazes us with his poetry and artistic vision.

The tour will take place in late summer, with the Liverpool date taking place at EBGB’s on 29th August.
