. ... NOTES

Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Timbo King has been making
noise for years, with scene-stealing cameos on Wu
classics like RZA's Bobby Digital In Stereo,
GZA's Beneath The Surface, Wu-Tang Killa Bees'
The Swarm, the Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture
compilation, and more. He's also held it down as
a member of several collectives, including the
Wu-Tang offshoot Royal Fam and the Hip-Hop
supergroup Black Market Militia (Timbo, Killah
Priest, Tragedy Khadafi, Hell Razah, and William
Cooper). Despite this success, Timbo has
patiently waited, never dropping an album of his
own. Nature Sounds is now proud to present Timbo
King's solo debut, the long-awaited From Babylon
To Timbuk2.

For an MC whose first major breakthrough was a
1993 spot on the Who's The Man soundtrack, it's
been a long journey. Yet Timbo King had no
problem biding his time. "I didn't want to rush
it," he explains. "I took my time in crafting my
debut to ensure that fans received the exact
quality and body of work I knew they would come
to expect from experiencing Timbo King as a
featured artist over the years, and now taking
the reigns as the ring leader."

The result is a cohesive, razor-sharp collection
with plenty of lyrical jewels. Based on a book by
Ralph Windsor, From Babylon To Timbuk2 is more
than a typical album. "It's an audio novel,"
explains Timbo. "It's the story of my life, all
the ups and downs, and trying to make a way for
myself. At the same time, I'm doing the
knowledge, teaching some things I've learned."
Production duties are handled by Bronze Nazareth
(who produced nearly half the album), as well as
Lil' Fame of M.O.P., Vinny Idol, and more. A
number of guests also stop by, including RZA,
Killah Priest, R.A. The Rugged Man, Jr. Reid,
Hell Razah, Akir, and William Cooper. While the
road was long, the result may be a modern-day Wu
classic. "Either you're a survivor or you're a
statistic," says Timbo. From Babylon To Timbuk2
is for the survivors.
