    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.

    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."

    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.

    On April 12, 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested in Baltimore for possession of a switchblade, though it's still not clear why he was pursued in the first place. Police claim Gray was apprehended without force, though bystanders have suggested otherwise, and video evidence shows Gray screaming while being forced into the police's van. What happened next is still being investigated, though by the time Gray arrived at the police station, he was unresponsive, unable to talk or breathe.

    Beyoncé's hit single "Drunk In Love" already faced a bit of controversy earlier this year when Future voiced his confusion for not being credited as one of the song's writers, and now a bit of legal drama has emerged around a sample used within. Hungarian singer Monika Miczura Juhasz, known as Mitsou, says she was "sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission” on the track.

The 19-year-old Chicago native first popped up on our radars with her pair of Winter's Diary tapes, and ever since then, she's been elevating her craft with each ensuing track.
