Hip hop fans better get familiar with New York based Theophilus London, especially if you have ACL tickets. His video for his new single "Last Name London" not only teaches you how to pronounce his name but also bumps. London is another M.C. to ride this sort of hipster-hop wave that mixes electronic dance music with an old school flare. His debut album, Timez Are Weird These Days, comes out July 19. He will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live that same night. It seems Theophilus London is going to have a big year.
