How did you come by your stage name?
When I was a junior in high school I went through a pink stage and used to sneak in water bottles of vodka before you knew it I was Timmy Turn Up.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
Alot of the homies rapped back when I was a kid and was raised in a house that encouraged creativity so I also valued artistic expression especially when the artist has the ability to create something you can feel but it wasn’t up until I was out of Highschool and had felt enough of the highs and lows of life that I felt I had not only something to say but to contribute to my city genre and scene as a whole.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Alot of things Pennsylvania mostly seeing as it’s where I’m from I’ve pulled tons from my peers and those who mentored me on the way up its alot of factories and hard-working laborers who almost radiate that gritty tough kind of energy almost like they have a never say die-hard work gets the job done mentality but I also pulled from the guys involved in the streets who wanted more but only had a 9 to 5 available the guy who has a bookbag with no books and isn’t heading to school the guy who does things morally wrong not out of the thrill but out of the necessity I think the music embodies the sound of both sides I also pulled from mainstream musical acts like Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and J cole.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
When Death Visits is just meant to be an introduction into who I am and the world being created within these videos and songs I think my goal was for the listener to find himself getting lost in the more lively moments and feel kinda invincible to be instantly reminded subtly not only they but we all have to die at some point because death is always visiting.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Challenges I face normally come in terms of the location more than work ethic the way western Pennsylvania works is the scene is in Pittsburgh so if you start making music on the outside it’s very difficult to grasp the attention of anyone in the smaller towns and areas because no one makes it, but my greatest attribute work ethic wise has to be that this doesn’t work this is just what I do even with 1 view I’d still be making and posting songs for the one listening.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
I haven’t been around long enough to take that title away from names like pac and hov just yet but I do think I’m the best out of my class and have one of the higher upsides so potentially.
What are your plans for the near future?
Keep doing shows keep and dropping music videos hopefully win on another No Jumper Livestream, have some really cool songs being worked on, and getting ready to drop.
