The sequel to 2018’s Venom, titled ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ released earlier this month and it garnered better reviews compared to the end first. Tom Hardy’s portrayal of Venom and Woody Harrelson’s Carnage were certainly the highlights of the film. It seems Tom Hardy’s voice had very interesting inspirations.

Fans are also well aware of the fact that Tom Hardy has a deep love for all things Hip-Hop. Due to this, it was no surprise that his voice for Venom was inspired by various rap royalties.

While speaking to BBC Radio 1 after the release of the film, Tom Hardy revealed that Venom’s voice drew inspiration from legendary rappers such as Busta Rhymes, Method Man and Redman.

“So I mix a little bit of Busta Rhymes, a little bit of Method [Man] and Redman, a little bit of James Brown, and ever so slightly an element of Richard Burton.”

Before making a name for himself as an actor, Tom Hardy used to rap under the name Tommy No 1. He even recorded an album titled Falling on Your Arse in 1999 as he worked alongside writer and director Ed Tracy. We will have to wait and see if Hardy ever decides to drop an album again in the future.
