    Rick Ross Is "Disappointed" That Timbaland Leaked Tink's Version Of "Movin Bass"

    Timbaland caused a stir last week when he leaked out what he called the "original version" of the Rick Ross and Jay Z track he had recently produced, "Movin Bass." Apparently, Rick Ross wasn't happy about the way he handled the situation.

    Releasing two full length albums in one year is a rare feat most rappers will never accomplish, but in a sense, it's really nothing new for Rick Ross, who yesterday released Hood Billionaire, his second solo album of the year. The rapper has been dropping albums, along with mixtapes that have been considered to be as good as albums, within months of each other for years now. His latest album, however, isn’t a fitting follow-up to his sixth solo release, Mastermind, which hit retailers in March of this year.

    We know that Rick Ross wasn't the most pleased when Timbaland decided to let us hear an alternate version of "Movin' Bass," which heavily featured his artist Tink (and was coincidentally much better than the version that landed on Rozay's album).

    At just 19, Tink, Timbaland's latest prodigy, is already one of hip-hop's rising stars. She's in the running for this year's Freshmen class (she made our list), and we're expecting her debut album on Tim's Moseley Music imprint later this year. Tonight (March 21), during the final Fader SXSW showcase, Timbaland told the crowd that his partnership with Tink is meant to be.

    Aaliyah is a touchy subject. Pretty much anytime her music is touched, there's an immediate uproar. Not even Drake -- who seems to be able to do no wrong in the public eye -- was shamed out of working on a posthumous Aaliyah project. Thus, when a Lifetime-sanctioned biopic on the singer was announced, it was clear that if it wasn't an absolutely flawless portrayal, there would be hell to pay.

    Justin Timberlake fans are still basking in the martini-drinking, suit-wearing, gold-plated visions of The 20/20 Experience, but the pop crooner’s sights are already set on the steamy after party. The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 evokes the grit, sweat and sex missing from the first iteration, which took its extravagant vibe to the top of the charts as the best-selling record of 2013 so far.

    There were a lot of producers recruited for Jay-Z's latest event-album Magna Carta Holy Grail, but no one is as prominent on the album as Timbaland. While Jay and Timbo have worked together consistently in the past, they had reached a point where they were no longer close-- something they had to get over to make MCHG happen.

    In a brief preview clip of Timbaland's upcoming interview with REVOLT TV, the super-producer revealed a new Nas record that came about during the Magna Carta Holy Grail recording sessions.  "Nas got a song right now with him, Jay, and Justin, and it’s completely stupid," says Timbo. "It’s called 'Sinatra In The Sand' and Justin sounds like Frank Sinatra." Also, it looks like he'll be contributing heavily to the veteran emcee's next project. "I told Jay this, the person that gets me from Hip Hop now, their album is really gonna be phenomenal, and that’s Nas."

    You may remember when Jay Z took the New York Subway to his show at the Barclay's center a couple years back-- well now Jigga has taken to public transportation once again, with a couple friends in tow. The rapper is in London for a four-night stint at the O2 Arena, and yesterday he decided to take the tube to his show. Hov was joined by Timbaland, as well as Coldplay's Chris Martin in his venture, and apparently made sure to talk and interact with fans as he made his way to the venue.

    If you're as big as Jay Z, you can't get away with uncredited samples, even if they appear on very brief interlude tracks. On Magna Carta Holy Grail's "Versus," which lasts for all of 51 seconds, producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz sampled Swiss musician Bruno Spoerri without giving him credit, and now them and Hov are going to have to pay up.
