attitude Timothy Clayton, (born December 21, 1978 in Birmingham, Alabama), better known by his stage name Attitude, is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer.

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. 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. Since their introduction, Attitude has toured with Sparxxx and appeared on his 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 recorded material.

In 2006 he Created Steel City Entertainment with his manager and partner Jason M Brown.
