Interview with Loud Muzik artist Tim Ned


Interview and story by Valencia
Video Filmed & Edited by Corey Hanks for Stand-By Productions

It has been said that success is more likely when the consumer has a sentimental bond with the product. The culture of hip-hop is so multifaceted, giving those who are influenced by it so many reasons to relate to it. Everyone loves a rags to riches or “started from the bottom” story if you will. One element of hip-hop that tugs at the heart strings of any listener is to hear the struggle and the not so glamorous side of life that many hip-hip artist face daily, because the average person can relate in some way. Tim Ned is the living testimony and definition of what it means to literally “Live Out L.O.U.D.”

Tim Ned is far from the stereotypical hip-hop artist who’s lyrics are clouded with images of lifestyles they don’t live; he’s found a way to tell his story while still being able to cater to the ears of his fans, and not have to sacrifice his integrity as a man or an artist. Tim’s musical influences are far more than what southern culture has inspired. Tim has lived coast to coast in the US from California to Texas, and beyond as he has traveled overseas and experienced a plethora of other cultures that have in turn had a major impact on the music he creates.

Behind the smile and charming personality lies the story of a young man who was faced with life changing decisions as his back was against the wall. Tim Ned’s ambition, stubbornness, and discipline growing up as the child of a military serviceman fueled his determination to not lie down, and fight to accomplish what so many believed was unattainable.

Tim Ned is a man of the people, who’s not afraid to display the good, the bad, and the ugly through his thought-provoking word play. His passion and faith is evidence that even against all odds; remain humble, press forward, believe, and Live. Out. Ur. Dreams.

    This article was very revealing and thought provoking on the upbringing of Tim Ned. It shed light on his sources where he has drawn musical inspiration from. This reminds me of growing up, listening to a Nas or Common breaking down music the way passionate artist do! It feels like this was on fuse Tv or something, real talk. T!m Ned is not only a necessary addition to hip hop, but to music period!

      My man! Thanx bro!
