According to a brief snippet on MTV.com, Timbaland seems to think he is producing Jay-Z’s next album. After his admittedly stellar work on Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, Timbaland has embarked on a relentless assault on the contemporary musical landscape, gobbling up artists like The Hives, Ashlee Simpson, MIA, and Flo-Rida, and spitting out decreasingly inspired spacey-bounce tracks in his wake.
Just when it looked like the lumbering giant might return to hybernation beneath the Atlantic Ocean, he scored a recent hit with Madonna and J-Tim’s “4 Minutes” (named for how long it took the team to create it). This seems to have gotten him all fired up again, and he has now locked his sights on Jay-Z. It’s not that I don’t love “Big Pimpin’,” and it’s not that Timbo doesn’t have some great work under his belt, but his recent track record (every song on “Shock Value” that wasn’t a single) has me more than a little worried. “Better believe me,” says Timbaland in the MTV clip, “it’ll be a monster.” That much seems likely.
