It’s been a while since a new hip-hop artist has made his way in the music industry the old-fashioned / grass roots way by paying his dues with seedy small venue / club gigs and self-promotion. This is one rising hip hop star that hasn’t bought his way into the game, been born into a famous family, won a reality TV show, or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom. He did it the way you are supposed to. He booked and played gigs any and everywhere he could while continuing to self-promote and build a fan base as well as good business relationships. He goes by the name Timothy Rhyme. Born to a schizophrenic mother and an unknown father, Timothy Rhyme has had to conquer obstacles since birth that, statistically, many would never be able to overcome. Constantly clawing his way through life, Timothy Rhyme faced imprisonment, fought addictions, and stared death in the face. Needless to say, these trials and tribulations did not prevent him from starting his own business, graduating from college and excelling in his musical endeavors. Although his story reads like a movie script, he remains humble and driven. Timothy Rhyme was awarded as the UMA West Coast Artist Of The Year 2012, nominated California’s “Outstanding Emcee” twice, placed on URB’s Next 1000, featured on the cover of Submerge Magazine, sponsored by various companies, has been on a nationwide tour, and performed at the biggest underground hip hop music festival in the country (Paid Dues) with his team (First Dirt). Not only has he gained the respect from his peers, Timothy Rhyme has been honored to have shared the stage with the cream of the crop in this field like Kendrick Lamar, Grieves, Dom Kennedy, Mobb Deep, Macklemore, Immortal Technique, Chino XL, Dead Prez, Elzhi, Camp Lo, Locksmith, The Jacka, Andre Nickatina, Blu, The Living Legends, Canibus, Heiorglyphics and more. Timothy Rhyme is real, edgy, versatile, sharp and creative. He encompasses what the next generation of hip hop should have the privilege of witnessing.
