"It’s not dated, it sounds current, it sounds fresh, and it sounds like a classic," Timbo said of the upcoming "Too Good To Be True."

Meek Mill and Rick Ross' collab album Too Good To Be True is due on November 10, and fans are very excited for it. Moreover, the frequent collaborators will bring us their first full-length joint project as solo artists. They recently dropped off the single "Lyrical Eazy" to keep amping their listeners up for it, and one person who's fully on board is legendary producer Timbaland. He recently popped by the 99JAMZ radio station in Miami and shared his excited thoughts on it while discussing the state of rap today. Not only that, but the beatmaker called the LP a "masterpiece" that is "what we been missing" in the game, which is a pretty promising assessment from a legend within it.

"Ross giving you that Big Meech Ross,” Timbaland expressed. “And that’s all we want. We don’t want Ross to sound like Uzi Vert. That album says a lot to me because Meek is being Meek, whether you like it or not. It’s not dated, it sounds current, it sounds fresh, and it sounds like a classic. And you could tell the space they in. I don’t even need to talk to him and ask what space he in, you can hear it through the music."
