Photos: Bangarang, Tony Handz, Vern Senior and Hagan Lee wreck their sets at Ella's in Seminole Heights

I little hip hop inna Heights.

Seminole Heights has long been known as one of the quirkier neighborhoods in Tampa, and on Friday one of their most eclectic eateries — Ella's Americana Folk Art Café — proved it when they hosted an evening of hip hop featuring two Best of the Bay winning acts (Mike Mass, Bangarang) as well as three fast moving Bay area up-and-comers (Vern Senior, Tony Handz and Hagan Lee).

Michael M. Sinclair was there and has these snaps to share. Have a look and listen to some Tony Handz below.
