Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Alexandria, VA Tim Lloyd has always had a natural ear for music. As a child, he learned to play multiple instruments and as he grew he combined his creative writing ability with his expanding musical composition skills. To further his knowledge of the recording arts, he relocated to Orlando, Florida to study Entertainment Business at Full Sail University. During that time, he began cultivating his musical style and in 2010, shortly after graduating, he released his first EP, Prodigal Summer and Highway Hustle was born.

Highway Hustle is not just another rap artist. Known for his unique sound and impassioned lyrics, his aim has always been to push the creative margins of hip hop music and culture.

After a four year hiatus, his 2nd EP, Breath of Fresh Air, was released in 2014. The success of his 2nd EP lead to numerous tour dates and performances including the California Sweetheart Tour with Lil Debbie. Taking advantage of the exposure, Highway expanded his H2 Entertainment brand by launching his clothing line, Hustl Lifestyle, to critical acclaim.

His 3rd EP, The Fast Life, set to be released Fall 2016, promises to be his most vulnerable, honest, and transparent project to date. The Fast Life takes you through a culmination of real life events in an effort to give the listener a glimpse into the world from which Highway Hustle came. You will get to know the man, the hustler, and the artist, all while connecting to the insatiable human desire to acquire wealth, power, and success.

Welcome to the Fast Life.


Fear of Flight

Written By: Highway Hustle

Verse 1
I used to lead a normal life praying that God would intervene,
Now there's surviving and success and I was somewhere in between,
Collided with the stresses of another mouth to feed,
Now tell me what the point of living if you aint gon live out your dreams,
I scream bitch ain't nobody stopping me,
Doing everything colossal makes up for days of mediocrity,
An awkwardly I was the only one who was stopping me,
Master procrastinator against the odds like the lottery,
It's time to face these demons,
I'd rather die in a hail of shell then to live a life of no meaning,
Meaning yeah I'm back on my by any mean shit,
fuck all the fiend shit hustling aint new to us,
But to be the king like maximus I had to get up off of my gluteus and Fly,
Spread my wings and fly you'll never know what greatness lay in wait if you don't even try,
I was a prisoner to my fear but I be damn it be my fate,
I found out when I stepped up to that ledge and took the leap of faith that.

All my life I've been dreaming I lost my fear of flight
I lost my fear of flight
All my life I've been dreaming I lost my fear of flight
I lost my fear of flight
My Fear of Flight

Verse 2
Flyer than an ATP pilot,
Flyer than any of those that ever doubted,
We are blazing our own trail,
Leaders of the new we feel them tug on our coat tails and well,
This life we know it lack sympathy,
Aunt niece said it plain and simple you need energy,
And since we ain't getting any younger,
The struggle is real you feel my hunger Uh,
Gotta get it while its good,
I'll admit it took a minute but this shit is in my blood,
They can pay me millions for it but I do it for the love,
and it might be new to ya'll but nigga this is what I does,
Mamma told me I'm the next thing to blow,
and if I had her drive I'd have been rich a decade ago,
But I'm here now fear not there's nothing they can do to me,
I'm never looking back I gotta chase this opportunity cause,

All my life I've been dreaming I lost my fear of flight
I lost my fear of flight
All my life I've been dreaming I lost my fear of flight
I lost my fear of flight
My Fear of Flight
