Timothy Rhyme, Buffing Up My Game


Savvy, sharp-witted, relentless, punctual – not the typical description of a Hip-Hop artist. Timothy Rhyme is a West Coast emcee originating from the capital city of California, Sacramento. Matching street smarts with book smarts, Timothy Rhyme has devoted himself to helping those who helped him. Over the years, he has developed a team of like-minded individuals working to spread good vibes and a positive message to those who need it most; that team is First Dirt. Voted the Underground Music Award’s (UMA) West Coast Artist of The Year in 2012, Timothy Rhyme has performed alongside Macklemore, Tech N9ne, Heiroglyphics, Dom Kennedy, Blu, The Grouch, Murs, Immortal Technique and Black Hippie, and headlined a nation-wide tour during the summer of 2012.

He earned a coveted spot on the 2013 Paid Dues lineup with his team, First Dirt, sharing the bill with Talib Kweli, De La Soul, Killer Mike, and dozens of other artists that reign supreme in the industry. This year, Timothy Rhyme has been selected to headline the 2014 and 2015 Declaration of Independents Tour, all while working towards a college degree and raising a daughter. Timothy Rhyme has become a voice for those struggling to turn agony into achievement. Born into a blue collar, Mexican-American family of immigrant farm workers, he was dealt a childhood unparalleled to most. At a young age he was forced to face the consequences of having a schizophrenic mother in an environment where addiction, incarceration, and depression loomed. Throughout it all, Timothy Rhyme’s daughter has been his sidekick, giving him the hope and sanity needed to keep him on his path.

Timothy Rhyme has the uncanny ability to draw people in. He is relatable and reliable in a way that is unforced and honest. His life is reflected in the integrity and wisdom found in his music. His positive demeanor and willingness to share his experiences with youth facing similar strife makes him an artist comparable to few. Timothy Rhyme isn’t just an admirable artist, he’s an admirable human being. A diamond in the rough, he’s been buffing up his game. Now is his time to shine.
