Did you know Idris Elba was on Soundcloud? Check out “Family”, a track he uploaded under the guise “7WALLACE”.
Pacific Rim, Prometheus, The Wire, Thor, Luther, Nelson Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. I’m sure you know where I’m going with this. Idris Elba is huge right now but anyone late to the party might not know he also has a career as a musician. A few days ago, Idris (under the name 7WALLACE) released a track called Family, a raw and raspy acoustic number full of organic soul. A further look at his Soundcloud account leads you to tracks showing his rapping exploits including a track with Musiq Soulchild called Lover. Oh, and he did a cover of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean. And it’s dope. Yep, this guy is a multifaceted talent.
