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.
Throughout the many interviews we've seen from both Timbaland and Jay-Z leading up to, and following the release of Magna Carta Holy Grail, we've learned that they were not on good terms until shortly before the recording process.
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).
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.
Despite spawning a very successful single and video, not much is known about Drake's Nothing Was The Same. All we can confirm is that the YMCMB rapper is currently in the process of recording it, and it is due out later this year.
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.
Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience album is dropping in a few days, but there's already talk of another that's on the way, tentatively titled 20/20 Vol 2. As reported by Complex, Questlove of The Roots took to the Okayplayer forum (a site he founded) to discuss Timberlake and Timbaland's chemistry
Jay-Z has once again been caught in the studio, which hopefully means he's working on new material for his 12th studio album, although no word has confirmed this yet. Three days ago a photo surfaced of the rapper accompanied by Timbaland and Mike WiLL Made It.
Timbaland can’t seem to make up his mind when it comes to the title of his upcoming album. We first heard that we're going to get Shock Value 3, then last Spring Timbo started calling the album Rebirth. Now fast forward to last night, and Timbaland has revealed yet another name for his upcoming album.
Timbaland is known to be protective over collaborations with Aaliyah. When rumors started swirling about a posthumous Aaliyah album, to which Drake was attached, Timbo questioned its authenticity, and whether or not it would work.
