R.A. The Rugged Man – Tom Thum

“Legends Never Die” in stores now: http://bit.ly/1cHrpfz.

The Rugged Man joins up with worldwide beatboxing sensation Tom Thum for the latest visual off the album Legends Never Die, R.A. The Rugged Man has been supplying fans with a steady stream of visuals off the project. Now, he’s back with another, this time for the throwback opus “Tom Thum.” Featuring world-renowned beat boxer Tom Thum (whose TED talk has over 40 million views), the video was filmed in the streets of Berlin, Germany during a recent tour stop.

“For the video, I wanted to bring in graffiti, beatboxing, scratch vocals and just create a crazy weird animated hip-hop world,” says the Rugged Man. “Kind’a like Mary Poppins in the 80’s crack era.” While the track may sound like it was blessed by a turntablist, R.A. reveals that no DJ was involved. “There are no scratches in the song,” he explains. “That’s Tom Thum, he’s doing all the scratches with his mouth.”
