The Brian Kidd Connection (Part I)

This is without a doubt my favorite post to date. If there is anyone I could interview at the moment, it would be Brian Kidd. Why you ask? Because A. the dude is an INCREDIBLE producer and B. He has baffled us Timbo fans for a long time now. He's produced tracks and used samples that would surprise even the biggest of Timbo fans.

For example, let's look at the track "Get To Poppin'" or "Get Down" as it's been referred to. There are 5 yes 5 versions of this track. If I told you that Timbaland produced 4 of them you'd probably believe me but if I said he produced all 5 you definitely would not as the 5th one is where the mystery lies. Let's take a listen:

"Get To Poppin'" Version 1: Rich Boy
"Get To Poppin'" Version 1: Rich Boy Version 2: Attitude F/ Rich Boy
"Get To Poppin'" Version 1: Rich Boy Version 3: Pitbull F/ Rich Boy Remix
"Get To Poppin'" Version 1: Rich Boy Version 4: Pitbull F/ Rich Boy (off of Pitbull's album "Money Is Still A Major Issue" hear the difference?)
"Get To Poppin'" Version 1: Rich Boy Version 5: Chino XL F/ Rich Boy (aka "Latinos Stand Up")

So who produced this track? Is it Brian Kidd? But what about that last track where it says "...with this remix that Timbaland made..."? So it's Timbaland.....right? Confused yet? So was I until I asked Brian Kidd himself and he confirmed that indeed he did produce all the versions of "Get To Poppin". The last track? Could be a freestyle, who knows but Timbaland did not produce this track.

Now the Brian Kidd connection does not end here. OH NO there is much more to his music then this one track so stay tuned for much more. Brian man if you're reading this THANKS for hittin' me up! Glad to finally get the truth.
