Supplying a virtually non-existent viewpoint to hip-hop music along with his Chaldean heritage, Timz (blessed Thomas Hanna) burst onto NORTH PARK, CA’s local rap scene simply by getting himself, an Iraqi-American MC. Fleeing the Iraqi dictatorship and the precise persecution of Chaldeans, his parents migrated from Baghdad towards the San Diego-bordering town Un Cajon in the ’70s before Hanna was created. American metropolitan and Iraqi/Middle Eastern music generally appealed towards the Chaldean rapper since he was a kid and was assisting operate his family’s liquor shop. His professional musical profession mixing both cultures, however, begun to unfold after he finished his undergraduate research at the School of NORTH PARK in 2005. Garnering both compliment and scorn, Timz stirred up some controversy along with his history-telling, antiwar declaration “Iraq.” That one track place him on many radio and Television shows, including on the Fox News portion, a issue with Chuck Norris, and on the center Eastern-based Television network Al Jazeera; but it addittionally enjoyed large rotation on several college r / c around the united states. Nominated for Greatest Hip-Hop Album on the NORTH PARK Music Honours, his full-length debut, Open up for Business, premiered in 2006.
