In our first update (Feb 2011) we told you that he was working on his own release entitled “The Medkit” and in the build up released his Interludes Of Life, a 5 track Cosmic-Funk/Jazz influenced hip hop instrumentals EP, which included the standout Undawater Boogie.

Despite dropping Supernatural featuring Ab-Soul and U Had What You Had alongside Pr1me “The Medkit” was delayed but Tommy hoped to put out The Nine Lives Of Tommy Black instrumental album before the end of 2012.
