Bio

Tasman Keith is a mission boy who was raised between bustling inner city Sydney and the humble Bowraville Mission in the Nambucca Valley, northern New South Wales. Tasman proudly represents the legacy of the Gumbaynggirr Nation and Aboriginal Hip Hop. Truly epitomising everything that is dope about the newest generation of these cultures. The son of seminal Australian Hip Hop pioneer Wire MC, Tasman works hard to ensure he lives up to his pedigree.

In his short time in the music industry, Tasman has consolidated his musical stance contributing on the recent NITV ‘Change The Date’ track with Urthboy, Nooky, L-Fresh, Thundamentals, Coda Conduct, Birdz, Kaylah Truth, Ozi Batla & Hau. On hype man duties for Nooky, he has blessed the same stages as the iconic hip hop outfit A.B. Original and Tech N9ne. Tasman’s recent performance highlights includes sets at Yabun and Saltwater Freshwater festivals.

Tasman is as motivated as he is talented having released quality music relentlessly since he burst on to the scene at age 18 with his debut single and video ‘Be U’. He quickly followed this up with his debut mixtape titled ‘What Songs & Why? Pt1’ which showcased his ability to play with concepts and flip a track. The lead single, ‘Mish Hop Ain’t Dead’ flipped Nas’ ‘Hip Hop Is Dead’ and played homage to his father’s music at the same time. The follow up single ‘Lil Grilla Love A lot’ demonstrated that Tasman is not interested in conventional methods, but would rather construct concepts that push boundaries. He pushes his creativity and takes risks that most young MC’s wouldn't dream.

Tasman Keith is the future of hip hop.

HUGE tune - Tasman Keith is a beast. Caught his live performance of this track on NITV and it was just as large.
