I feel as though there’s so much to discover when it comes to TN emcee, Tim Gent.  The reason I say this, is because after hearing this record, I’m looking forward to what he brings to hip-hop.  We went through a stage where real music didn’t matter as much as the regular ol senseless ish.  Not to say that street hop isn’t ill, because it is, we can still agree that when an emcee contributes quality to the culture, we hold it in high regard.  Well at least, that’s how I, as a fan of good music, feel about hip-hop.

In the last year, conscious music has taken an inconceivable turn for the best.  From J Cole being the first artist to go platinum in over 25 years, with no features, to Kendrick Lamar‘s, To Pimp a Butterfly, still holding the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.  It’s pretty clear that everyone’s paying attention to what really matters.


I’d like to place Tim in a great category, as far as content, it’s all very relevant and refreshing.  The pairing of his voice and wordplay is nice, but not only does he spit dope rhymes, he also sings and sounds good at it.  On this record, he has background vocals by Drisana DeSpain to compliment his voice on the hook.  The melody is tight as well as the production by Clarksville, producer, HD.

The overall vibe is real fly and authentic.  We’re feeling it and look forward to Clarksville Nights when it drops April 22nd!
