Local rapper Tom Naylor, who grew up in Pheasant Road, Bearwood, has made it through to the regional heats of Open Mic UK at the NEC next month.
Tom performs under the name Mr Naylor and he was one of the stars of last year’s Bearwood Shuffle when he appeared rapping with his mom. He has been performing as a rap artist for the last year, and stands to win a £5,000 top prize to help launch his career. Tom told the Express and Star that if he was to win the prize he would re-invest it in a music video and recording time.
The Open Mic heats will take place at the NEC on October 6th.
Best of luck Tom!
