"It’s really starting to get some steam."

Tom Hardy is reportedly working on his own grime album, after an old mixtape from the star emerged online.

The ‘Falling On Your Arse 1999’ mix tape was uploaded online at the beginning of 2018, and saw the actor winning plaudits for tracks including ‘Rented Suit Plastic Shoes’,

Now, it’s claimed that he’s taking a foray back into music.

According to The Sun, the actor has teamed up with Sam Williams – who previously worked with the likes of Plan B and David Bowie.

A source revealed: “Tom has always had a huge passion for rapping ever since he was a young boy.

“They’ve been busy working on a selection of songs together for an album and it’s really starting to get some steam.

“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.”

The actor previously worked with producers Warren Riker and Gordon Williams as a teenager.

“I started out ­rapping when I was 14 or 15. I used to be with the guy who managed Leela James and Lauryn Hill, Pras, the Fugees and all that”, he previously claimed.

Hardy is yet to comment on the reports.
