Timid joins forces with Manila’s Fatima Palma aka the Nurse Rapper of Tukar Sinati and emcees Nimbus9, Gap Saldana, and LSabor to deliver a unified message with “1 Message”. Five emcees, rapping in three languages (English, Tagalog, Chavacano), from two countries (the United States and the Philippines) on opposite sides of the globe express concerns that resonate across all borders. “1 Message” was produced by frequent Timid collaborator Taz of Onmugen and was recorded in the heart of Manila at Camino Nuevo Music Lab.
“1 Message” is initially being distributed through social media to music fans in exchange for spreading the message.
the poor get poorer and the rich resort to gimmicks
and first world problems become a meme of the privileged
there’s better ways of living, is it socialist?
maybe if that’s what you call giving, or you’re just be emotionless
