Timid featured at Ebony.com

Ebony chose “It’s That Time” as this week’s hottest music, alongside the lovely Kelly Rowland and crooner Avant

“When is it not that time to go get yours? Exactly. If you’re not working toward your goals, then you should be. That’s all Timid, Lin Que (of the legendary X-Clan), and Rachel Walker are trying to say. They just added dope lyrics and a horn driven hook (produced by Domingo) as the motivating factor.

Timid - It's That Time featuring Lin Que & Rachel Walker

In honor of Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration for his 2nd term, the world traveling emcee Timid plays off the inauguration’s official theme of ‘Faith in America’s Future’ with the Lin Que (of X-Clan) & Rachel Walker assisted single, “It’s That Time,” produced by the veteran beatsmith, Domingo. The single, which calls for us to move forward is now available through iTunes and all other major digital retailers.

Lyric Excerpt:
The field is open for true hoping of the masses
What’s real is the notion of success through a passion
A unity of you and me, a view of trees, and a sunset
Memories of slavery but we’re not done yet
We stood in wait for dawn to break and the sun to rise
Because the son don’t rise if the sun don’t rise..

“N.Y.C”

From YouTube:

As the song titel “N.Y.C.”says we each sang about our feelings that we had until we started our lives in NY and the things we have realized after we got here.

The music video was filmed in NYC.

We have been doing music separately in Japan but we really became like a family after meeting here.

We hope you all will listen to our song

USAToday covers Timid’s “I Want The Secret”

December 4, 2011 on 9:57 pm | In Timid | No Comments

Timid partnered with Pace University professor and author Dr. Larry Chiagouris to utilize Hip Hop as a vehicle to help college graduates and job seekers. Timid wrote and produced the song “I Want The Secret” describing the current situation students face and, taking cues from Chiagouris’ book, providing tips to those looking for employment.

From the USAToday article Market yourself like a product to get employers’ attention“:

“For the past decade, Larry Chiagouris has watched college seniors troop into his office every spring at Pace University in New York, seeking his advice on how to get a job.

Because he was beginning to feel like a broken record repeating the same advice, Chiagouris says he decided to write a book called The Secret to Getting a Job After College (Brand New World Publishing, $14.99).

Still, he says he knew from his years of teaching that he needed something else to hammer the message home.

Enter “Timid.”

“Timid” is the rap name of Jaylon Carter. His video Inferno attracted Chiagouris’ attention, because he thought Carter was delivering a message that spoke to the fire-in-the-belly attitude students need to develop if they want to find a job.”

Timid’s single “I Want The Secret” is available through all major digital retailers including iTunes and Amazon and Bandcamp.

Lyrics Excerpt

The Truth Of The Matter Is The System Would Rather
Focus, On Tuition Patterns Than On What Comes After
The Former Over The Latter, It’s Like Taking Away The Ladder
How Do We Ascend To Begin Escape From Financial Captors?

The music video can be seen on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI1hg9VZjSI

November 1, 2011 on 8:12 pm | In Artists, Press Releases, The Fam | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 29, 2011

Queens son Mike Scala announced his campaign to seek the Democratic nomination to represent New York’s 6th district in Congress. Family and friends attended the announcement at Once Upon A Time in Jamaica, Queens.

Scala will be live in the accompanying chatroom for an open discussion until 9 PM EST.

Mike Scala’s campaign espouses the message that those on the ground level have better perspective than the establishment: “With over 8% of Americans unemployed, now is the time to demand stronger leadership. Strengthening essential programs on which everyday Americans rely, investing in our infrastructure, and improving our educational system must be prioritized over needless wars and tax spending on the wealthy. To put it simply, President Obama needs more support from his own party to enact the changes promised by his election.”
