From LL Cool J rapping “I Need Love” to Method Man telling Mary J. Blige “You’re All I Need” to Common displaying his feelings via word cards on “Come Close”, lyrically eloquent professions of love have attempted to describe the depth of that feeling to the muse that inspired them. Timid’s new release is simply titled with the most wanted to hear phrase in any language; “i love you”. The lyrics vocalize the feeling one has when they are in love and the title is stylized in lowercase to represent a simplistic innocence of that love.
Timid “i love you” is produced by Taz of Onmugen and is available now on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-love-you-single/id1207110562) and Bandcamp (https://timid.bandcamp.com/track/i-love-you) with other digital outlets coming soon – plus a crowd sourced music video in the works.
perfect verse over a tight drum and a snare
like Dre said to Syd…you’re my air
happiness is ever fleeting but with you I dare
never sleeping on our life I handle with special care
we can be that pair that others are sick of
when they try to keep up with us they give up
we are that harmony to that beat called love
in public in the street we might cut a rug
Timid has received an immensely positive reception on several of the major Hip Hop websites and covered by organizations like Ebony and USAToday. He’s had stage stops from New York to Tokyo and television and radio appearances from Washington DC to Australia. Timid has shared the stage with artists such as Travis Barker & DJ AM, Warren G, Paul Wall, Jeru The Damaja, CunninLynguists, A-Alikes, Agallah of Dipset and Pack FM and has worked along with Hip Hop icons like Granddaddy IU, Edo G, Lin Que (X-Clan, MC Lyte) and Domingo. Timid is also a member of the collective known as Team Fearless with veterans like Mikey D (Mikey D & The LA. Posse/Main Source). Along with features and production on releases distributed by legendary Hip Hop label Rawkus Records and Japan’s Handcuts Records, Timid is not one to sleep on.

Timid Takes Issue with the Infamous Being Celebrities
Celebrity is among the most overused and misused words in today’s sensationalistic media and society. Timid takes aim at that practice with the Domingo (Big Pun, KRSONE, Eminem, GUnit, etc.) produced “Not a Celebrity” and further drives the point home in the track epilogue when he says, “Just as we’re responsible for what we do, we need to be responsible for who and what we celebrate.”
iTunes: Coming soon
the transgressor, an aggressor, a vulture
a poacher, a predator, a character but not a celebrity a joke, a stooge, a jester, a fool,
who needs to be subdued but not a celebrity
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. On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, the Scala for Congress campaign will broadcast that announcement online at Livestream.com/ScalaforCongress starting at 8 PM EST. 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.”
Official campaign site: http://www.ScalaforCongress.com
Mike Scala was born and raised in Rosedale, Queens. Mr. Scala graduated cum laude from Polytechnic University (now Polytechnic Institute of NYU), and is now in his final year of study at Brooklyn Law School.

He additionally spent time at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, which advocates for improving end of life care and is the largest nonprofit membership organization of its kind in the United States. During the 2008 presidential election, Mr. Scala worked with the Obama campaign to help college students vote early via in-person absentee ballot. Scala is a Hip Hop artist who has released music through the storied Rawkus Records. He recently founded the Solid Ground movement, which promotes governmental focus on everyday Americans and has garnered national support.

Hip Hop breathes. The BB Presents We’ve Got a Pulse! project hit the blogs and torrents this past weekend. Featured on this compilation are Illmaculate, Crooked I, Royce da 5’9, Evidence, and the new Pizon track “Change Your Mind.” The song represents a return to the days of straight spitting on beats.
Fuckin’ nitwits – I Twitpic’d a pic of my big dick
To six chicks, and they all licked it
Ain’t shit you could tell me
I’m so sick it don’t even make sense
Tax cuts for the wealthy
You’ll vanish quick like baking soda
Me and rap go together like Spanish chicks and baby strollers
The project is also available from RapGodFathers.info, Hear-It-First.net and your favorite mixtape spots. Peace to BB!
