Dunno if Tum Tum's gonna be the Next Big Thing outta Dallas' hip-hop scene, as this piece from DJ Booth.net suggests, but we do know one thing: Tony Richardson's big. C'mon -- he titled his released-last-week album Eat or Get Ate for a reason, right? And if nothing else, as the video for "Anthem" reveals down below, the guy's very proud of his hometown -- safe to say it's the first video to ever feature the marquee for W.W. Samuell High School.
I still like the title of his 2006 release, featuring "I'm From Dallas": Tum Thousand and Six. Genius. Oh, and here's a Q&A he did with Vibe last week, in which he says, "You look at Tum, you seeing Dallas right there." And he says he's fixing to make a comedy set in a fast-food restaurant. --Robert Wilonsky
