Before he became an Oscar-nominated actor, "Dunkirk" star Tom Hardy was trying to make it as a rapper.
As he told the BBC in 2011, he had a recording deal when he was a teenager where he was billed as "Tommy No. 1."
"I started out rapping when I was 14 or 15," he told the BBC. "Because I come from a nice middle-class neighborhood it was a very hard sell. And I wasn't very good! I used to be with the guy who managed Leela James and Lauren Hill, Pras, the Fugees and all that. I worked out with (Grammy-winning producers) Warren Riker and Gordon Williams. I've recorded loads of stuff but it's never been released."
The full mixtape from 1999 was posted recently to b by Edward Tracy, who produced the songs under the name "Eddie Too Tall."
It's called "Falling on Your Arse" and features such titles as "We Makes the Beats," "People Like to Boogie" and "Sit Your Arse Down."
Now, we can only hope that among Venom's skills are some mean beats.
