Theophilus London might be known for wearing cool clothes and Hasidic Jew hats, but it looks like he’s about to become better known for wearing nothing at all. The indie rapper was recently robbed when a thief broke into his Soho apartment, and said thief’s ill-gotten gains included several computers packed to the brim with n00dz. (And a ton of very good music, but who cares about that?)
“I had mad naked pictures on there. A lot,” London told Page Six. “Of myself and, maybe, of other females.” (Is he secretly a lady?) However, unlike other, more famous “victims” of n00d theft, he isn’t even pretending to be upset about it. “I’m actually psyched,” he said. “I’m waiting on my naked photos to leak. I know Bossip and Mediatakeout will have a field day on it. I have nothing to hide.”
That’s all well and good, but what about those “other females”? With London’s star rising, I wouldn’t be surprised if an Alexa Chung or someone equally hip/famous popped up where she did not want to be. Or maybe he’s using reverse psychology on the thief in the hopes that that he/she won’t try to fuck with him if it sounds like he’s going to enjoy it? Regardless, it seems like he’s well aware of the fame this type of showboating will bring him in his industry (rappers love to show their stuff), and you know what? He deserves it. If this talented artist has to have his sexxy nudes published to get noticed by mainstream hiphop, then so be it.
And if you don’t know what a Theophilus London is, check out the video for his recent single “Why Even Try,” which seems to have more or less predicted this exact situation:
