MC Wheels is more than a passionate Australian Rapper with catchy rhymes, on point delivery and beats to match. He is a real life hero and inspiration to a generation with a story that will uplift.
Out of the darkness comes a story of human bravery, honesty and compassion that remind us of our own humanity and of what is really important in our lives.
MC Wheels aka Nathan Tessman is young rapper who has a rare condition called Giant Axonal Neuropathy which severely affects his ability to perform everyday actions that we all take for granted. Nathan's condition has no cure, so his future is uncertain and unpredictable.
His passion is to become a recognised hip hop artist and to be a voice for all people that have a dream. Nathan is not one to give up easily and he is determined to get the best out of life. His dream of becoming a respected hip hop artist is not just about creating a career for himself - his desire is to become a voice for the disabled community and an inspiration to his fellow man....
When Roger and Lenny from Live Life Productions met Nathan they knew that this very special young man had an incredible story of strength and courage to be told and have been filming his journey from his first forays into performing to recording in the studio. "One Shot -- The Story of MC Wheels" is currently in production and will follow Nathan's journey through everyday life. It shows the amazing support he has from family and friends and highlights the relationships that have developed throughout his journey and the infectious inspiration for life that Nathan has to offer in return.
The past 12 months have seen MC Wheels performing live around Queensland including supports for Joelistics and Evil Eddie. Aussie legends Hilltop Hoods, Bliss n Esso and Scribble MC have also taken Nathan under their wings and have been mentoring him on his hip hop journey. Several MC Wheels songs have been included in the soundtrack for upcoming Australian film "Ryder Country".
The rest of 2012 shows no signs of slowing down as MC Wheels finishes recording his debut album in between live performances, including an appearance on the main stage at Sprungfest before Hilltop Hoods.
