With an acclaimed debut EP under his belt, alt-rap innovator Theophilus London is nearly ready to take the plunge and release a studio album. Today, the Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-raised singer/rapper gives us the first taste of the project. On opening track Last Name London, the artist makes sure everyone out there knows his name, delivering ambitious rhymes over a clattering beat by John Hill. Premiered on XXLmag.com, the record is available for free download in exchange for a Retweet. London fans can keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest news and tunes leading up to the July 19, release of London’s freshman set, Timez Are Weird These Days.
