TIMEOUT hit the Top 20 on the North American College Radio Charts for nine weeks to start 2018! The hunger for #Troublemaker hip-hop is real, with listeners ranging from Vancouver, BC to Fargo, ND to Madison, WI to Charleston, SC.
On November 11th, 2017, Ahmen released TIMEOUT, the definitive hip-hop soundtrack of our lives. It’s the music we’re hungry for: audacious, bold, optimistic, fired up, and catalytic.
“‘Timeout’ is audacious, passionate, and powerful. It’s a hard job to seamlessly blend activism with entertainment, but with ‘Timeout’, Ahmen seems to have found a way. In his own words, Ahmen has said that ‘Timeout’ could be the ultimate catalyst for social change, and it’s very possible that if it got into the hands of the right person, he could be very, very right.” –Thomas Bedward, Broken 8 Records
“With the flow of a socially conscious Eminem, and the speaking ability of Common, Ahmen makes this album is a must listen. At the end of the album, if you are not asking yourself “Whose fire are you going to light?”, you need to go back and not only LISTEN to the album, but HEAR the album.” –Jamie Robinson, Mr. TBT
“Ahmen is that champion music so sorely needs right now…a confident voice, powerful inspiration and serious light of hope in what threatens to be an ever-darkening planet. Our world needs heroes like this, more now than it ever has before…I’m definitely stoked to hear Ahmen embracing the power of his words and passing the energy right on to the people – he’s created an insightfully brilliant, highly-relevant and important record with Timeout that advocates strongly for change and demonstrates the unity and strengths that exist between us all at every possible moment.” –Jason Vare, Sleeping Bag Studios
“Ahmen has an insightful perspective on many issues, and he is able to share his mindset through clever, direct and unapologetic lyrics. At times ironic and thought-provoking, while at times cathartic and personable, Ahmen really managed to create a very compelling release that reminds why I love hip-hop so much.” –Down Beatz
