Day Tyme is an artist straight out of Park Hills, Missouri. Day Tyme's style is a mix of gritty and Melodic . He has anthems for the ladies such as "Another Sad Song" but he also has hard hitting bops such as "Cake Maker". Day Tyme is also a unique artist because he is one hundred percent blind which the MC says does not slow him down one bit.
