Timmy Brabston is only fifteen years of age. His recent release, “Only Thing Poppin” featuring Chinx, is an anthem in the making. His sound is unlike any and his unique look distinguishes him from the pack. Follow him @TimmyBrabston.
Hip-hop rapper, Timmy Brabston, was born in Palo Alto, California. At age 2, he moved across the country to where he now lives in Mahwah, New Jersey.
His early influences were artists such as Eminem, Lil Wayne and 50 Cent who Timmy would hear on the radio when I would listen to rap. However, since he started recording, he has been greatly influenced by his manager, Biggs, and his producer, Blickie Blaze, and he is now developing his own unique style.
Timmy is an extremely articulate young man; in his music, but also in describing his work. His answers to my questions were so comprehensive I am mostly going to allow him to speak for himself rather than attempt to paraphrase his words.
