“My favorite producer,” Timbaland wrote in the caption. “Some one I always look up too!!!!! @drdre the greatest to ever do it !!!!!!” In response, many fans told Timbaland not to count himself out of the running. "You guys definitely neck and neck," one commented. Another wrote: "Timbo…you had futuristic sounding beats in the mid 90s…you was killing it with the R&B and rap!! Wasn’t a bad rapper for a producer either!!"
Timbaland In Concert
Timbaland meeting up with Dr. Dre comes after he recently remarked that he's still interested in a collaborative project between the two, after the idea was originally put forth during an interview with MTV News back in 2001. Speaking for ASCAP Experience 2023 in June, Timbaland said of the idea: “Anything can happen, but it’s all about timing, it’s not about ‘is there still a chance?’ Everybody’s open, but everybody’s lives - I think right now, Snoop and Dre are working, you know what I’m saying? Like, it’s all about timing.”

“I haven’t seen Dre but I’m sure we would all love to do it and we probably could do it, especially with where we’re at in our lives, it probably could happen,” Timbaland added. “I never really thought about it but I will ask Dre. He loves music, he’s still doing it, he is one of the gods, so yeah we should do that Chairmen Of The Boards. It could happen but it’s all about timing.”
