Described by his fans as a “real life” rapper, Tim Blakeney began composing songs at a young age. In the wake of childhood tragedies, he used his notebooks as a form of therapy. Uprooted from south central Mass to central Florida at fifteen, his diverse experiences and broad culture are clearly represented in his style of writing. Influenced by the likes of Nas, Big L, and many other artists, his thoughtful lyrics and original flows give his listeners hope that HipHop is alive. In his new release “The Pressure”, Tim illustrates the pressure this world puts on us through the 9-5 grind combined with the different challenges we face in life. It’s energetic beat and sharp delivery set the stage for the motivational theme presented in this timely debut single.
Compelled to inspire with powerful music, Tim is showing the world that regardless of how dark things may seem, there is always a way to get back to the light. Music is his vehicle. Take a ride with him.
