I cannot help but to be excited to hear that hip-hop icon Tim’m West will be releasing music as early as spring 2013. The “Fly Brotha” emcee, who now lives in Chicago, shared with me exclusively that he will grace the cover of the weekly Chicago Reader newspaper later this month. For those who are unfamiliar with the periodical, the Reader is a must-read popular weekly paper that features music, arts, theater and the social life of Chicago and midwest America. With a reading impression of up to a million readers and subscribers weekly, this feat will open West to a much-deserving wider audience that will get the ear-pleasure of enjoying his talent.
The above photo is a quick snapshot that West took with fellow Chicago emcee Roy Kinsey. Are you unfamiliar with Kinsey? He released one of the hottest mixtapes of 2012 with the aptly-titled Rookie Of The Year and won great reviews from hip-hop and indie music critics.
Well, what does Roy Kinsey have to do with Tim’m West’s upcoming story? Read on to find out.
West announced days ago via Facebook that he will release a mixtape jointly with Kinsey titled Snapshots. Currently, the two hip-hop titans are in the lab finishing up their duet effort, and I am excited. Check out the news below.
In only the first few days of 2013, some of my favorite musicians in the LGBT community are releasing new music. I am mostly interested, and excited, to see what comes of this joint effort. Tim’m will drop the first single exclusively here first.
