Tom Hardy is allegedly recording a grime album
Tom Hardy proves acting isn’t his only talent. Just earlier this year, his rap mixtape from 1999 surfaced to the internet, revealing he actually had bars. While he admitted he “wasn’t very good” in an interview with BBC, he also revealed he was signed back in the 90’s. Now it seems he’s ready to revisit his past in music, particularly of the electronic variety.
The Sun reports the London native has been busy writing his own grime album — teaming up with British producer Sam Williams, who’s worked with the likes of David Bowie, Gaz Coombes, and Plan B. An alleged source revealed, “Tom has always had a huge passion for rapping ever since he was a young boy. In the past, he’s put songwriting on the backburner but just recently decided to pick things up again after building a friendship with producer Sam Williams. They’ve been busy working on a selection of songs together for an album and it’s really starting to get some steam.”
While Hardy is best known for his roles in Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises, and the upcoming Venom film, he’s ready to pick up right where he left off almost two decades ago, according to the tabloid. The source continues, “Tom’s a bit tentative about releasing it for the world but big labels including Warner have already shown an interest in picking it up, so there is real potential for it to hit the charts.”
Hardy has yet to comment on the matter.
