Video: Timberland Chats With The Breakfast Club & Shows Enthusiasm About New Artist

It’ s been a while since we’ve seen and heard that playful side of Timbaland on record or even at all for that matter. But recently with an interview with Power 105.1 (The Breakfast Club), he spoke of everything from Aaliyah, comparisons from today’s music to the 90’s era, all the way to his new artist, Tink. In the interview, you will notice the look in Tim’s eyes, it’s that look of passion, something that has been noticeably missing from the superstar producer for quite some time. After playing a couple of tracks featuring the 19-year old lyricist/vocalist, it’s no wonder why he’s dubbing his new artist to be at the forefront of the next female emcee takeover. A few months ago, Tim mentioned that he had a project coming up that he and Nas are putting together. At the end of the interview he plays another joint but not before telling Dj Envy to end the interview and stop the camera rolling… my guess is that the song he played featured Nas and Tink but we’ll see (and hear) about it in due time.



Btw… here’s that joint with Rick Ross and Jay-z that he played in the video above…

Audio: Jay-Z – ‘100$ Bill’

Classic Joint: Rocafella’s Greatest Collabo?? Jay-z & Beanie Sigel Go Toe-to-Toe

Remember when Jay-z, Beanie Sigel and State Property used to be on the same squad and they had this aura about them that made them seem unstoppable and at times invincible. Out of the many years, this roster banged out an abundance of hit records and countless classics. There may be some disagreements here but this particular joint is timeless and one of those records that never gets old. Originally featured on the State Property II Soundtrack, ‘It’s On’, a collab that featured Jay and Beans has got to be THE most infamous and greatest collaborative effort in Rocafella’s memorable reign.

Lyrical Fitness: How Does Jay-z Hold Up Against Kendrick Lamar

With a well-distinguished career that dates all the way back to the early 90’s, Jay-z has earned his stripes and proven to be amongst the top emcees and successful businessmen in the world. But after being in the game so long, is the inspiration still there for him to keep going? Or better yet, how would he compare to one of the top emcees of today’s time?

Right on cue, Kendrick Lamar drops a remix to his ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ track and Hov is featured on the song as well.

Jay-z has received a warm response to his verse on this joint and if Kendrick stays on course this song as well as Jay’s verse will undoubtedly be a classic. So does this mean that Hov’s rap game is still up to par? Well of course it does, he IS Jay-Z!

As the years go by, Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z, continues to groom his business ventures but you better believe that every now and then he sharpens his skills just because he can!
