The NYC-based world traveling emcee, Timid, connects with underground rap legend Q-Unique (Arsonists) for a lyrically rich, conversation-starting new single, âWhoâs To Blame,â bolstered by Skammadixâs strings-heavy production.
Those who have heard Timidâs previous work, including this yearâs great âI Love Youâ single, already know how the New Yorker can get busy on the mic. Whereas that track was definitely more romantic and personal, âWhoâs To Blameâ is a call for answers and for people to actually admit when theyâre wrong without pointing fingers elsewhere.
On Q-Uniqueâs verse, he details a number well-known excuses, from musicâs 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 heâs looking someone dead in the eye with lines like, âOr maybe you truly think/ That youâre more deservinâ/ And others less worthy/ Which is actually more disturbing.â
