Timbaland to produce Jay-Z's next album

First new music and now some incredible news. Timbaland is looking to produce Jay-Z's entire next album! MTV sat down with Timbo who shared his thoughts on the forthcoming project:

He wants me to do the whole thing this time around. I'mma make it a classic too. You better believe it. It'll be a monster! I always say this: You get a first single from me, I'mma get you up to gold. And it's hard to get you up to gold in this day [and age].

Jay should never chill. We had a long talk, and I really talked to him. Jay-Z does it for the love. That's different. When somebody does it for the love, you don't stop. He has everything, but he's still current. A million people are buying his album regardless.

We wanna go to the world. The world is 'Big Pimpin'.' 'Big Pimpin' ' is an international hit, so we wanna do 10 of those. Meaning, some of the songs gonna sound like M.I.A. would rap on some of the beats. You gonna be like, 'Whoa!' But it's Jay on 'em. That means it reaches everywhere. I'mma have songs with bagpipes. The music is gonna be so worldwide, he'll be able to tour the rest of his life, maybe, off just this one album. The Jay-Z album is gonna be phenomenal. You know why? We don't care. We're doing great music just to do it. We doing it for our fans who love us to say we ain't quit. I'm doing it 'cause that's my homeboy."

Tour the rest of his life off just this one album? That's a big, bold statement so let's hope the album will be as incredible as Tim makes it sound. They haven't even gone into the studio yet and already Tim is talking like this. He must have some heat for Jay, bagpipes and all! Speaking of big albums, Timbo continued to praise his own work on the Chris Cornell album:

It's the best work I've done so far. I could be like, 'Wow. I really took it there. It beats Justin's album. Justin even said that. He listened to it and said, 'You did it again.'"

So Jay-Z and Timbaland, 1 entire album, what you think?



    yes! hopefully we get all instrumental albums, like with Shock Value... even though the lyrics make the track what it is usually, it would be a treat.

    can't wait. and with Jay at live nation, maybe some other artists there will be getting the Timbo treatment... madonna & timbo round 2? now that he's got this new sound, who knows what we could hear?

  2. You already know if its true it will be dope. Tim will give Jay-Z nothing but heat next to working with Missy is his favorite artist to work with his friends usually get the best out of tim I can't wait for all the new music to come out.

  3. I hope this comes to pass. I've been waiting on this for YEARS.

  4. Tim + Jay = Fire! Well... usually! Lol

  5. lemme quote Polow da Don for a sec

    "Wait a Minute!"

    first tim says he couldn't produce a missy album because he's workin' on grooming MMG talent... then he turns around and says "a full album with Jay-Z is possible"?

  6. 3 or 4 tracks would've been nice...
    but a whole album???...
    he might as well get diddy for another round...
    all this "whole album produced by timbaland" thing is just blocking other
    producers from making the cut...some good producers who deserve to be heard.
    just because tim's fat ass is in the music videos and they are not...
    that's a shame...

  7. this happend at least 3 or 4 times, i mean producing entire albums. so your telling me tim your gonna produce the pussycat dolls, jay-z's, beyonce, and chris cornell's entire album?

  8. ^^^^^
    ur right it does sound like alot but if its true..... tim will deff be the biggest producer EVER.

    omg! im sooooooooo loving tim right now!!!!!!!!

  9. Well.. it'd be sweet, but Tim says this kind of shit all the time. I'd wait until he at least goes into the studio before buying into it.

  10. I will believe it when the album is in stores and the booklet says "all tracks produced by Mozart Timadeus"

    Too good to be true..

    This can not be true..

  11. Fav Artist + Fav Producer = MY LUCKY DAY!!!

    I hope this goes incredibly well!! Because its already the most anticipated!!!

  12. I just hope he works with all those artists I still would like to hear TI over a solo Tim beat.

  13. Best fucking news in a long while from the hiphop scene!

  14. ok well first off hes not exactly producing the entire pussycat dolls album; hes executive producer a much better job ;) ((at least it sounds better lmao)) this is great it will be the greatest producer of all time with the greatest rapper of all time :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY its so fuckin awesome!!!

  15. lol danja can't trump this... the best he can do is a whole album with T.I.

    that's not a bad concept at all.

  16. i hope danja is working with him on all these things!!!
    cuz to say the truth tims kinda gay with out him...
    im kinda feeling the more poppy stuff than old school...

  17. you know what aayize...stfu! timbo is the king and king alone! got that?? you are full of nonsense :@ no offense to danja but i mean u cant compare now what i would like to see is a team up of Timbo & Polow :D

  18. I dont beleive this either but if its half true, we can AT LEAST expect 1 or 2 songs in the album. And no tim is better working solo then with danja. i mean go listen to hey pap and big pimpin. danja was still in high school at the time of tim producing that. Danka is good dont get me wrong but his work so far is not ground breaking like Tim when he first started.

    o and danja made tim more pop

  19. yees danja is not international more pop :D:D

  20. Danja did and if not help tim with the trance/synth sound in his productions I just don't think Jay will choose those beats if Tim plays some for him Jay is gonna put Tim through the grinder until he hears something he likes like on Fade to Black.

  21. hopefully jay will help Tim develop a sound on some beats and not just filter through predesigned beats... otherwise we'll end up with 10 "Make Me Better"s
