With the slow but consistent rise of a paradigm shift in America, highlighted by the election and re-election of Barack Obama, the continued Occupy Wall Street movement, and more focus on the needs of historically marginalized groups, Timid proclaims “It’s That Time” to move forward.
Timid enlisted the lyrical talents of iconic emcee Lin Que of X-Clan to feature on the motivational and optimistic “It’s That Time”.
“It’s That Time” is produced by well-known NY Hip Hop producer Domingo (KRS-One, Big Pun, Eminem).
the field is open for true hoping of the masses
what's real is the notion of success through a passion
a unity of you and me, a view of trees, and a sunset
memories of slavery but we're not done yet
we stood in wait for dawn to break and the sun to rise
because the son don't rise if the sun don't rise
"When is it not that time to go get yours? Exactly. If you’re not working toward your goals, then you should be. That’s all Timid, Lin Que (of the legendary X-Clan), and Rachel Walker are trying to say. They just added dope lyrics and a horn driven hook (produced by Domingo) as the motivating factor."

"On his new single, rapper Timid bridges the gap between NYC underground hip hop and the Bay area Quannum Projects sound. Domingo produces the horn-filled p-funk beat but it is Timid whose Talib Kweli-esque flow give the track a harder edge." - survivingthegoldenage.com
