Tyme Journey began her career in the film industry as a photographer. During her teenage years, she would utilize off-days from touring to capture the beautiful landscapes of popular destinations like New York, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, and London. Later, she started working on various projects, including reality shows, documentaries, television shows, music videos, and feature films. In 2019, Tyme was inspired to expand her creative vision into screenwriting and filmmaking. She wrote, produced, directed, and edited her first short film “Save The Studio,” which was a complete one-woman show. After releasing her short film, Tyme focused on creating more content centered around hip-hop, including rap cyphers and tour vlogs. You can check out her new series, “Tour Life,” on YouTube and Instagram now.
Q. You’ve had experiences that most people your age have not, how do you think those experiences will help you with your current endeavors as a creative?
My extensive experience has been immensely valuable in shaping my skills and building my confidence. Having traveled and worked at a young age, I gained expertise in various fields. I discovered my passion for photography at the age of 14 while in Berlin, Germany, and later started my career as a beauty influencer in New York, creating makeup tutorials and supporting small-owned beauty brands. I am a creative individual at heart, and I cannot imagine limiting myself to just one field.
Q. For our readers, what is a day in the life with whom many consider a Hip Hop God, KRS-One, like? How has that shaped your life?
Every day, the One household is bustling with new activity. If I had to describe our day-to-day life in one word, it would be “active.” Growing up, it always seemed like there were new challenges to overcome, and this mindset has helped me become a quick learner and adept problem solver.
Q. Your parents did a really good job of keeping you all out of the media, now that you are older what are your thoughts about why celebrity parents try to keep their children out of the spot light?
The first thing that comes to mind is the need to protect my identity. Growing up, it was crucial for me to understand “who I am.” Whenever fans would ask me how it feels to be KRSOne’s daughter, they would follow up with a deeper question, “DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?”
These inquiries consumed my thoughts as a child, and I often found myself preoccupied with how to answer them, rather than engaging in typical childhood activities such as going to the playground or prom.
Q. Regarding your current interest as a creative, what is your ultimate goal/dream for where you’d like to see your art go?
I am thrilled to see all my creative pursuits thriving, thanks to my unwavering self-belief and strong work ethic. My main passions include film, fashion business, and design. In my film career, my ultimate goal is to direct, write, and produce thrilling and dramatic TV shows. In the fashion industry, I aspire to debut my own BDP.ONE collection with a fashion show in Paris, France. My grandmother left a remarkable legacy in fashion, having put on three fashion shows with my mom and aunt as models. It would be an incredible honor to carry on that legacy.
Q . This may seem like an obvious question, but what was your inspiration behind “Save the Studio”?Was it your idea? Was the song written for the film or vice versa?
“Save The Studio” was a collaborative project between my father and me. The main goal was to inspire both engineers and creatives to never give up, even when the odds seem to be stacked against them. The music featured in the short film was specifically written for it, with two freestyles at the beginning and three singles towards the end, including “Krazy” and “Knock Em Out.
Q. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Successful, healthy, happy!
Q. Where are you and what are you doing?
I’m currently on The Return Of The Boom Bap Tour working on merchandise and filming a new tour movie for BDP.ONE
Q. What inspires you?
What inspires me is a family quote, “be a friend to your future self.” I try and keep that in mind before I take actions in my life.
Q. What is your daily routine?
First thing I like to do is play music, it’s the best way for me to start the day. Then of course self care routine like skincare and exercise, after that it’s all about work.
