Music has the strength to heal the oldest and the deepest wounds. It is the tree where a life’s traveler comes to find solace and start the life with new energy. It is that language that sees no boundaries, no culture, and no background, it owns a little part in everybody’s life. Where music can be somebody’s life’s part, there are some who make music their lives. Timmy Tiger, a rapper from St. Louis, Missouri has one such story where music is not just a part of life but the whole of life.
Timmy Tiger is the youngest among five children. He was closest to his eldest brother, but life could not keep both the brothers together for long. Timmy says that the turning point of his life was when he lost his brother in front of him. His hard times started from there and it was only those times that inspired him to stick to the world of music and continue rapping. Timmy has been rapping since the age of nine, but this incident made his conviction even stronger to continue music.
Music came as a blessing to his life, just like life was itself a blessing to him. Having been through many road accidents, he is still standing, breathing is nothing but a blessing of God. He sings and raps only to impress and to get closer to God.
Timmy Tiger believes that there is a lot of suffering in the world. Each and everyone in the world is suffering from something or the other. Through his music and writing, he wants to be part of people’s pain and do his part to help people overcome it.
A lot of successful people in the music industry have come from extreme struggle and emotional breakdown. It is the suffering that added soul to their music and is now listened to worldwide just because the songs and their lyrics are so relatable.
