Timmy P – “The Prologue
Reviewed by: Joshua Dwight
Rating: 6.86 (Out of 10)
Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. Timmy P linked up with Hells Most Wanted Records out of Southwest, Florida in 2009. Now in 2011 he releases “The Prologue”.”The Prologue” is the EP to an upcoming album coming in February entitled “A New Chapter.” This project covers a lot of who Timmy P is, what he represents, where he’s from, what he has been through, and how he was able to overcome a lot of various circumstances. Overall this project tells a story of a man that turns to God for guidance to make it through life.
This album has a pop-rap sound which lately has been an ever-growing genre. Timmy P has a sound and style similar to B. Reith, but yet he has his own unique sound as well which happens to be one of the qualities he strives for. The album is about average, but has one part in which in my opinion places it below average due to a lower appeal.
In the song “Soaring” at about 1:19 he states “Wonder If I Change, How many will I P*** Off”, and even though he may be raised up in an environment where that isn’t considered a swear word there are parents who may be offended by this usage, and may not want their children listening to this. So speaking to the parents: In this song Timmy P uses the “P-Word”. As for stating “Below Average”. I speak on this because out of 20-40 average albums I don’t find content like this.
As for the quality on this project, a few of the songs were above average and sounded decent enough to uphold the album to an average standard, but not enough to say it was above average, but that’s not a bad thing. The production quality was good. The confidence behind the microphone was good as well. The overall message was excellent and full of his experiences, where he is from, and covered his past and present life.
The songs that stuck out the most on this album were: Soaring, Little by Little, and A Rocker’s Rap. “A Rocker’s Rap” was a very unique track and was probably the best track on this album. I definitely had to hand it to Timmy P, because this track really blew me away, and he did a really good job on that song.
