Tom Hardy's Rap Mixtape From 1999 Has Emerged And It's Legit Good

Tom Hardy's Long Lost 1999 Rap Mixtape Is Finally Here

Tom Hardy's Long Lost 1999 Rap Mixtape Is Finally Here

The mixtape's lyrics were all written by Hardy himself, who took on the stage name of Tommy No. 1, and the 18-track project features typical late-1990s hip-hop production with heavy drums and tonnes of classic samples, with one track seeing the actor rap over the Godfather theme.

Hardy, most famous for his roles in The Dark Knight, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Revenant, can be heard slinging his cockney accent over some clearly Wu Tang Clang-influenced 90s beat, Hardy aka Tommy No 1 has some serious skill.

So it looks like alongside acting, modelling, saving puppies and catching scooter thieves, we can add decent rapper to the list of Tom Hardy's talents.

The album is available in its entirety for Hardy's fans to enjoy at BandCamp.com, with a note that it was "made in a bedroom 1999" and that the tracks "were never really finished".

He said that music is something that's "always on the radar" but it doesn't "leap out" as something he has to do.

He even had a record deal. I worked out with (Grammy winning producers) Warren Riker and Gordon Williams.

He said: "I've recorded loads of stuff but it's never been released".

And who can forget the time he chased after a moped thieves in Richmond, yelling: "i caught the c**t!". And I wasn't very good!'

"Unless I'm playing a rapper in something I can't see myself straying off and doing it". Maybe if this album generates enough love then we can coax Tom onstage'.
