Who Flipped It Better? Timbaland Vs. Tim & Bob Vs. Digital Black

For the latest Who Flipped It Better I bring you a triple threat. As always, we'll go in chronological order this time starting with Timbaland. If you remember the Baka Boys Interview they did with Tim from years passed, they specifically asked Tim about how he made the drums for the track "Cop That Shit." Tim replied that he made them using garbage cans implying that they were made specifically by Tim and making us all wonder what kind of instruments he has in his studio. Let's refresh our memories and watch the video for "Cop That Shit":



Well ironically or maybe not so much, 2 years later these same self described "garbage-can-created drums" by Timbaland show up on Bobby Valentino's first single "Slow Down." Despite the endless mis-tags of being produced by Tim, Valentino's debut single was actually produced by the duo of Tim & Bob who have since worked with Valentino on both of his albums.

Let's take a Bobby Valentino “Slow Down” .

So did Tim & Bob end up using Timbo's garbage cans? or maybe they used the same ones? Looks like we have a case of the same, dare I say, sample being used by 2 producers.

Ok I'll admit that's an easy one, we all knew that one right? Well to give it that little something extra, these garbage cans have actually been passed around yet again. Recently my man Digital Black formerly of Playa dropped his 2nd solo album called The Autobiography of Benjamin Bush which is definitely worth checking out. When I listened to the album, there was one track in particular that caught my ear. That would be the track "I Want U" which low and behold has the exact same garbage can drums that Timbo and Tim & Bob used. I also suggest you take a careful listen to the track "Anything" (do I hear "Do It/Block Party"?)

So there you have it 1 sample, 3 producers and as I always ask: who flipped it better? Bonus points to the one that can identify these garbage cans.

  11. J Boogie, Your an idiot!!! Please do some home work before winding us with all this BS. The "Cop that shit" drums are from the Deepest india Collection. Czar posted it up on one of the tim's mixes on the-breaks.com Plus the drums on Bobby valentino's slow down are the same drums used on Birdman's/Clips "what happen to that boy" by Neptunes not cop that shit. you a dumb ass for writing shit like this.

    ReplyDelete
  12. it aint the same as what happened to that boi, u must have some remix version or somthing cuz dey dont even sound alike

    ReplyDelete
  13. its the same sample pattern but dif drums so tim could have replayed it on trash cans

  14. "Bonus points to the one that can identify these garbage cans"
    Haha.. seriously man, if you would know a little bit about music instruments you would know that this is a tabla and in now way a trash can or something like this. even guys like timbaland want to make themselves look cool sometimes by tellin some lies.. i mean, what would've been cooler , if he said he made the beat with thrash cans or if he told the world that the loop is from a sample cd that everyone can buy online ?

    ReplyDelete
  15. and where can i listen to the track anything

    ReplyDelete
  16. "you would know that this is a tabla and in now way a trash can or something like this. "

    haha....seriously man, if you knew a little bit about writing you would know it was a play on words.

    I'm aware of the sample...
