Did you know before Tom Hardy hit it big as an actor, he was an aspiring rapper and dropped a pretty dope mixtape?

In a 2011 interview with BBC Newsbeat, Hardy revealed that he began spitting rhymes at “14 or 15,” and even had a recording deal before eventually getting into acting.

“I’ve recorded loads of stuff but it’s never been released,” said Hardy. Well hip hop fans, Hardy’s album dropped. Check it out at the top of the page.

“Falling On Your Arse In 1999” is a previously unreleased collaboration between a DJ named Eddie Too Tall, aka BAFTA-winning television writer and director Ed Tracy, and a rapper named Tommy No. 1, aka Tom Hardy. Tracy uploaded a mixtape of Hardy’s unfinished recordings to Bandcamp.

Hardy is currently shooting “Venom” for Sony down in Atlanta. No word yet on whether any of these tracks will appear on the soundtrack.
