Thee Tom Hardy - I'm Grinnin

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Thee Tom Hardy
  • Track: I'm Grinnin
  • Producer: 9th Wonder
  • Album: The Hardy Boy Mystery Mixtape: Secret of thee Green Magic

On his last mixtape leak, Fresh & Fly, Thee Tom Hardy turned things upside-down by allowing beatsmiths-turned rappers 9th Wonder and Khrysis to provide two of three verses while Vitamin D handled production duties. Judging by the lukewarm reviews the cut received, readers will be pleased to hear that I'm Grinnin finds Hardy's musical mentor back in the producer's seat, crafting a characteristically sunny, soul-sampled instrumental as the North Carolina native (and official freestyle series contributor) serves up all the left-of-center rhymes fans could ask for. Here, the emcee recounts the criticisms he faced as an ambitious youngster, and how he ultimately proved the doubters wrong; he even addresses a comparison that's been on commenters' lips even since he made his Booth debut: “They said I rap like Outkast, fact or false? I take it like a dis' and a compliment, then I hit the mic and they start to shakin' like Parkinson's.” Listeners left grinning by this laid-back jam are sure to find more to smile about on The Hardy Boy Mystery Mixtape: Secret of thee Green Magic, set to hit the 'net later this spring.
