Relatable, dope, smoker’s anthem is what I think of when I listen to Houston’s own, Tim Woods, most recent LP titled TBA. From his lyrics, to the diverse production, along with the features, Tim definitely delivered with this project.
Tim has a very mellow tone in his music that puts you in a zone. His lyrics reflect a guy in his twenties trying to remain positive despite the struggles of growing up as a young, black man in today’s society. Tim has a way of conveying the message of realizing obstacles and adversity and conquering them by simply proclaiming “this can’t be the end of me (him)”. With a message like that, listeners will have no problem “Vibe’n Out” to every track.
Let’s get into the production of the project. Tim used a few producers including SMB, zJethro, and Trill Gates. The production gave its listeners a strong hip-hop vibe that set the tone for perfectly for Tim’s demeanor and lyrical delivery. The production alone evenly flowed and told a story. My favorite record, hands down, is “Planes” featuring FreddyING and produced by Trill Gates. It was hard to choose a favorite because I could easily listen to this project from beginning to end; and that’s straight through or shuffle.
A few lyrics form “Planes”:
I’m just running off of faith
This is my daily devotion
I refuse to just go through the motion
You got the self-esteem of a freight train
Niggas shooting at your dreams with an AK
With a project like this and a fan base that is growing as fast as Tim’s, it won’t be long before you start hearing the name Tim Woods everywhere.
