The NLT Cunundrum

I have to say I've been very perplexed with the NLT & Timbo (and Royal Court) connection. A lot of tracks have surfaced which could of all arguably been done by Timbaland yet there has been much debate that they could also be Underdogs tracks (do I hear the Rob Knox argument again?) So being the investigator that I am, I dug around and asked the NLT camp which tracks Tim did in fact produce. They confirmed that both "Hollywood" and their first single "He Said I Said" were both produced Timbaland yes yes you're right and the Royal Court. Right away I noticed the vocal effect used for "He Said I Said" and "Hollywood" was the same and was similar (if not the same) to the vocal effect used in Omarion's "Icebox." On a little side note despite what the video for "Icebox" leads you to believe that voice is actually a combination of The Clutch's J Que and Zeke Lewis' voices not Tim's.

The same vocal effect was used for the 3 tracks no big deal right, especially since all 3 are produced by the same people. Well listening to the NLT track "Heart Attack" the vocal effect is the same as the above tracks yet NLT's camp didn't say Tim had anything to do with it. Despite the confusion, I set all of this info aside and didn't think anything of it. That is until recently when yet another track using the same vocal effect surfaced called:

"She Can Get It"


So now we have a total of 5 tracks using the same vocal effect with a potential of 2 of them being produced by different people other than Tim/Royal Court. Either NLT's camp forgot to mention additional tracks that Tim/Royal Court produced or whoever produced "Heart Attack" and/or "She Can Get It" is using the exact (or pretty damn close) vocal effect that Tim/Royal Court has been using all the last few tracks. Sure Tim/Royal Court don't have exclusive rights on this vocal effect, it just seems odd that multiple producers on multiple tracks would use the same vocal effect for the same group potentially on the same album.

So to all my Chronicles' readers I ask yet again what do you think?

  2. "that voice is actually a combination of The Clutch's J Que and Zeke Lewis' voices not Tim's."

    I knew it! I remember I told you I wasn't sure if the voice is Tim's, but y'all just said that "yeayea, it is". :D But I was right, hahaa!

    And about these tracks, I reallyreally hope that "Heart Attack" is produced by Tim & The Royal Court that is one of the goddamn best tracks I've ever listened.

  4. It's possible that all of these songs were written by the same team that wrote icebox (the clutch...zeke lewis and j que). That would solve all the discrepancies.

  11. i have always thought that it didnt sound like tim on the "icebox" track. and then king is trying to sound like tim on "hollywood" and "she said". i think this just confirms that tim has not had a finger in any of these tracks. however all of them, omarion, tim and nlt benefits from saying tim produced those tracks. the artists gets more people to listen to their tracks since its "timbalands new hot shit" and tim gets more cash from royalties. and do yall remember that interview with omarion he said tim did that "im so cold im so cold" thing. thats now oficially a lie. one simple thing, tim lets the royal court produce lets say 7 tracks for NLT, the two hottest ones he will "claim as his" and then the rest of the tracks end up having the same sound and vocal effects but no timbaland credit. so obvious now

  13. well, anonymous, it's not Tim claiming the record... it's the label promoting the record as if it were produced by Timbaland, when they know full well it was the Royal Court. it's just like when you see this new shit on a forum that says "Produced by Timbaland" only b/c someone actually believes it was, or can make you believe it is.

    and having a hot producer on a record doesn't guarantee sales or playback... I mean, look at Danja's records that have been singles. Katharine McPhee's "Love Story", T.I.'s "Hurt", and Paula DeAnda's "Easy" didn't do too well on the charts.
