6 Degrees of Seperation with Timbaland

MTV ran an article on Tim awhile ago talking about the fact that's he's worked with so many people these days you could play the 6 Degrees of Seperation game (ie Kevin Bacon) Check it out:

*****And all of this is really nothing new. For more than a decade now, he's produced ear-catching, ultra-distinctive hits for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Destiny's Child, Jay-Z and Nelly Furtado, to name just a half-dozen. In fact, while trying to compile a list of all of Tim's hits, one starts to think that it's entirely plausible he's worked with every single artist who's ever released an album ... ever.

We'll just call him the music business equivalent of Kevin Bacon, the guy so tenuously connected to every celebrity that kids in college invented a drinking game in his honor. And in order to test that hypothesis, I e-mailed my colleagues at MTV News, and asked them to submit the names of anyone who's ever recorded a note of music, to see if they could be linked to Timbaland in six steps or less.*****
