The Comeback of the Century: Please Help Donate

image

One nearly died, the other is fighting Lupus. Timothy Rhyme and Nay The Producer (First Dirt) are trying to make the Comeback Of The Century, literally.

Timothy Rhyme nearly lost his life on July 18, 2011.  He bled out internally and almost met the man upstairs.  Since that traumatic day, he has bounced back like James Blake.  Shortly after his recovery, he moved to LA to be closer to his daughter, got into CSUN, has made some significant strides in his music career, and kept his focus on helping people.

Nay The Producer was diagnosed with Lupus August 2012.  She spent the entire month  of October 2012 in the hospital. This flare up was so severe it caused fluid in her lungs, fluid around her heart and two blood transfusions. To go from a self reliant, hard working woman, to needing the assistance of a walker and cane to do menial things has put her in a hard spot.  Regardless, she keeps fighting and hasn’t let this unrelenting disease stop her from moving forward.

  Both have seen their lives be flipped upside down and completely altered forever.  This campaign is an attempt to raise funds to put together an amazing album but it subconsciously is touching the warrior spirit that we all have.  Some people would have let their circumstances get the best of them but Timothy Rhyme and Nay The Producer would not let defeat be a word that described them in this story. 

 This campaign is important for several reasons.  Not only will it allow Tim and Nay to tell their story.  But it will allow them to inspire others and show other people in similar predicaments that there is some hope and that they aren’t alone.  Music is one of the most powerful tools in lifting a persons spirit and this is one of the main objectives of this album.  In a world where most of the messages in music are about “cool” stuff and a glamorous life, Tim and Nay attempt to show that you can still make good music with a good message.  

If you have ever faced a challenging time in your life and just wished you had that little nudge to get you to the next step, this is your chance to be that to someone else.  This is your chance to be apart of the Comeback Of The Century!

What Your Generosity Will Fund

Through experience, Tim and Nay have figured out how to release a successful album.  They each have years and years of experience in this industry and have seen the formula first hand.  The main components are:

1.Mixing / Mastering

2.Album Cover Design 

3.Music Video

4.Distribution

5.Promotion

6.Merchandise

We budgeted every penny and used fair estimates of making sure we didn’t sacrifice quality.  If we are going to ask people to invest in us we want to make sure that their money is used to create the best product possible.

If for some reason we are unable to reach our goal.  Your investment will still be used for this album.  We might have to cut some corners and go the cheap route on some of the extra costs but either way it will go into the final album.

The Impact

Tim and Nay are really hoping to set a tone in the hip hop world.  They are consistently breaking down barriers when it comes to music arrangement and content within the hip hop community.  To be able to release this album in the manner they would like to would mean that the younger generations will have a new message to relate to.  In a world where negativity and self destructive tendencies reign supreme, this is a breath of fresh air to those that are looking for more honest depictions of the world they live in.

In the end, Tim and Nay hope to inspire future artists, students, and people in general to not be afraid to be themselves. They want to show that you can be yourself and still be successful. That you don’t always have to conform to what you see on TV to gain some notoriety.  

The impact will hopefully be felt for generations to come.  And when the next generation feels like they’re down and out they can be reminded that Tim and Nay made the Comeback Of The Century and so can they.

Other Ways You Can Help

We understand that times are hard and that you might not feel comfortable giving some strangers your hard earned money.  Rest assured that you even reading this has helped our cause and for that we are grateful. If you believe in this campaign and want to help in some other ways you can:

Inland Empire Weekly: IE’S Best HipHop Artist of 2013 60East

image

Joey Atilano, better known as 60 East, first got into hip-hop as a kid watching his big brother work on his own music. Since then, his reputation has grown steadily, thanks to a few high profile gigs and some legit tracks. One of those tracks is “Motivation,” which features the lyrics, “You can teach motivation, you can’t fake motivation, so please keep hatin’, ‘cause I could use the motivation.” That’s all well and good, but only issue is that not a lot of people appear to be hating.

Not every artist has a happy beginning but sometimes it’s the effect of a dark event that can shape and mold us into what we need most. Artist 60 East is fully aware of the connection between a friend’s and father’s death and his prominent succession as an up-and-coming hip-hop artist of the Inland Empire.

It all started innocently enough, 60 East was a young sibling attached to his older brother’s musical ambitions which included friends working on a label. “I was always around listening and watching them rap, record, write, perform, etc. and at 9 years old that’s when I first decided that’s what I wanted to do with my life. This phase continued until around 2006 when the main artist on my brother’s label ‘Spaceghost’ was murdered in Ontario.

”60 East fell into limbo for a while, dropping out of high school and working construction to make ends meet but eventually he was reunited with a few of his brother’s old friends. It was the kick he needed to jump back onto his destined musical path was losing his father to cancer in 2010. “That’s when I decided was going to put all my effort, strength, time and resources into making it in the music industry,” says 60 East.

Passion for 60 East’s loved ones fuels his lyrical creativity. If you’re not a fan of life stories put into song, you might not get the same desired effect as someone who has gone through similar events. “I am very personal and open with my life and my experiences. My goal at every show is to touch someone through my music whether it’s done by describing a scenario they have been through or sharing one of my own stories and having them be able to relate to it,” says 60 East.

60 East should be on your radar by now since him and his group FIRST DIRT were the opening act at this years 2013 PAID DUES FESTIVAL and also head lined the D.I.Y Fest ( Do It Yourself Festival) and the E.O.S Fest (End Of Summer Festival) so if you have’nt heard of him keep an eye out for 60East and FIRST DIRT!
