Bossplayya's Timstrumental of the Week

***We have a new member to The Chronicles team and his name is Bossplayya. A legend among Tim fans not only for his extensive Timbo knowledge but also since he actaully owns what the rest of us just talk about. Check out his first in what should be a long running weekly posting of Timbaland instrumentals.***

On the eve of Timbaland releasin' a new album, I gotta take it back to when I officially became a fan...check that, Stan. ONE IN A MILLION. Aaliyah's sophomore album dropped on August 27, 1996 (same day as Outkast's 2nd record). Wasnt expectin much, bought it outta customer loyalty, she wasn't w/ R kelly anymore, how good could it be right? Outkast didnt even make it out the wrapper that week, 'who the fuck is TIMBALAND?!' I thought.

And it was all about one track in particular, a song I feel has influenced the course of ALL R&B and HipHop that came after. Not the lyrics penned by Missy, it was the drum pattern, the instrumental. I contend that had it not been for that song on that album, 'urban' music as it is today could not be possible. Timbo talks about reshapin' radio w/ his beats, this was the first time.
