Biography

Timothy Clayton was raised in a western suburb of Birmingham, Alabama in the community of Brighton, an area with very little access to musical or artistic scenes. Attitude's teen years involved several trips to jail. In between stints, he developed an interest for hip-hop which was nourished by the mainstream offerings from Miami, Atlanta, and New York City. As a result, Attitude developed a style that held true to his southern upbringing, but was greatly influenced by the East Coast lyrically. He started Centa Street Records with partner Wade Summerville, determined to develop Alabama's young talent in addition to enabling him to release his first album Serious Times in 1997.

Attitude's search for talent led him to a friendship with Bubba Sparxxx that would take both careers to the next step. Since their introduction, Attitude has toured with Sparxxx and appeared on his critically acclaimed second album Deliverance. The close relationship also lead Attitude to work with hip hop producer Timbaland, who signed him to the fledgling Beat Club Records imprint. Unfortunately, the label folded despite having over half an album's worth of recoded material.

He joined Warner Bros. Records's roster on January 9, 2007. His Warner debut album is set for a 2009 release. Producers are expected to be Timbaland, Danja, The Runners, Justice League, DJ Toomp, Drumma Boy, David Banner.
