Time recently released his new song “Loud” Ft. Migos, of dab fame. “Loud” is currently climbing the radio charts and is receiving great feedback. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Born to a musical mother and father who was a prominent Saint Louis street figure. When Time’s father was murdered his mother pulled away from her music career and eventually had to work as a nurse to support herself and her kids. Nicknamed “Lil Tim,” he was often home alone and forced to read a book a day as a method to keep him off the dangerous streets of St. Louis. Lil Tim’s mother tried to keep him from going down the same path as all the other men of their family, but the St. Louis streets were too enticing.
Lil Tim took to the streets of St. Louis and started running in gangs, like the men in his family before him, after his older brother was murdered. After numerous run-ins with the law, Lil Tim was sentenced to a hefty 12 years in prison at the early age of 17. By now, Lil Tim was no longer little and due to his size and his quick to fight attitude, he was sent to “The Walls,” known formally as Missouri State Penitentiary, a prison that was tagged as one of the bloodiest prisons west of the Mississippi. Time was one of only a handful of teenagers at the maximum security prison where the majority of inmates had sentences that ranged from 25 years to multiple lives.
When Time was not successfully tutoring other inmates he was in his cell getting lost in books and listening to any albums that the guards would smuggle in for him in exchange for cigarettes. He would spend long days memorizing his favorite verses and attempting to write his own. It took going to prison for Time to reach into his roots and realize his love music as his mother did before him. Four years prior to his release he was transferred to a medium security prison where he met and befriended rapper/producer City Spud, a multi-platinum selling rapper and Nelly’s famed little brother of the St.Lunatics.
Time helped City Spud smuggle new music and beats into the prison as he prepared for his release day. Time would write his own verses to the songs that City was working on. Eventually City called Time out to spit a verse which led to them forming a prison rap group. They started participating in prison cyphers and battles in the yard, where Time became a force to be reckoned with.
When Time was released from prison he went straight to work on his music. With plenty of work done in prison, writing and making beats, Time released his first single “Loud” Ft. Migo, of Dab fame. Time is looking forward to putting out and performing new music.
