Timid – Who’s To Blame? ft. Q-Unique [audio]
The NYC-based world traveling emcee, Timid, connects with underground rap legend Q-Unique (of the Arsonists) for a lyrically rich, conversation-starting new single, â€œWhoâ€™s To Blame,â€ bolstered by Skammadixâ€™s strings-heavy production.
Those who have heard Timidâ€™s previous work, including this yearâ€™s great â€œI Love Youâ€ single, already know how the New Yorker can get busy on the mic. Whereas that track was definitely more romantic and personal, â€œWhoâ€™s To Blameâ€ is a call for answers and for people to actually admit when theyâ€™re wrong without pointing fingers elsewhere.
On Q-Uniqueâ€™s verse, he details a number of well-known excuses, from musicâ€™s influence to parental abuse, given by folks who may be unable to shoulder blame for their own actions. While Timid follows that same lead, he flips the script a bit by rapping like heâ€™s looking someone dead in the eye with lines like, â€œOr maybe you truly think/ That youâ€™re more deservinâ€™/ And others less worthy/ Which is actually more disturbing.â€
