Justin Timberlake On Working With Jay-Z

So much for Ebony and Ivory. In an excerpt from the latest Vanity Fair, Justin Timberlake says Jay-Z was too busy to appear on his sophomore album, FutureSex/LoveSounds. Cry me a river.

“Jay-Z has put out 11 albums, and I was talking about doing collaboration with him, and he said, ‘I can’t do it right now, but I’ll get you on the next album.’ I was like, ‘No, man, I don’t work like that. This sounded good to me for you and me to do together, and if it doesn’t work, then I totally get it, but I won’t be putting an album out next year; these aren’t a dime a dozen to me.'”

  • I fuck your girl when you was home

    Who???

  • Your Father

    Turned down JT but always works with tired, uninspired Chris Martin? Hov’s got it backwards.
    Coldplay is the band black people namedrop to insist they listen to something other than hiphop/r&b, as white people do, when they namedrop Eminen so they can say they also listen to rap.

  • cece

    whats funny is beybey and JT dated back in 2001, that probably has somrthing to do with why jay told his ass no lol.

  • http://poeticassasin.wordpress.com poeticassasin

    lmao @ beybey

    making music together doesn’t mean they dated smh.

    he just aint want to do it – people feel that artists are obligated to work with everyone under the sun — they are humans too, sometimes you just don’t feel like it

  • BKBANGA

    LETS BE REAL. WHO REALLY NEEDS WHO IN THIS SITUATION

    JAY-Z NEEDS J.T

    OR

    J.T NEEDS JAY-Z

    YOU THINK ABOUT IT??

    J.T NEEDS TO HOLLA AT DRAKE ANYWAY I CANT HEAR A JAY-Z AND J.T SONG… DOESN’T MAKE SENSE AT THIS POINT

  • TEL

    is this really important?

  • http://rapradar.com Ben

    DONT DO IT JAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! N’SYNC!!!!!!!!!!! REMEBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.youtube/com/jhuntdaprodigy JHP

    I don’t see why this deserved a post, a JT/JZ collabo would’ve been dope, but it didn’t happen so okay. JT is tripping though, hasn’t dropped a new album in 5 years, pop music needs him it sucks right now.

  • Me

    Hov practically begged sade 4 a collab b4 she gave him one recently after turning him down…JT YOU ONLY BRING UR SEXY BACK 2 D LADIES.NO HOMO!

  • Ac@pella!

    Ummm, so u mad? Tell ‘em y u mad son…matter fact, tell us when the fuck that next album comin’ out.

  • zezzoi

    JT is tripping though, hasn’t dropped a new album in 5 years,

    ^^

    yeah i don’t understand this. I get that the guy prolly just wanna enjoy life and take time off, but still, when you’re that much of a influential character in the game, you can’t just not make music cause you don’t feel like it. You got a job to do.

  • mac DIESEL

    ONLY REASON HE AIN’T COME OUT WIT AN ALBUM IS CUZ IT WOULDA BEEN TOO MUCH PRESSURE FOR HIM TO MAKE A BIGGER ALBUM THAN FUTURESEXY/LOVESONGS!!!! PERIOD!!!!

    ….AND AS FOR THE JAY COLLABO, GET OVER IT PUNK!!!! AT ONE POINT, U WAS PART OF N’SYNC AND DATED BRITTANY SPEARS!!!! NIGGAS LIKE JAY AIN’T FORGET!!!! THEY WOULDA CLOWNED HIM IN MARCY!!!! HA!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Black Shady

    who cares? T.I killed his feature….

  • PrincePolo

    y0 rapradar workers . wheres the post about 50 releasing his single tonight ?

  • Sam I Am

    None of them need the other. They’re both megastars. As to why jay didn’t grant the feature, who knows? No biggie anyway.

    Side note 1: there shouldn’t be a rush for the next JT album. Its about the quality. Futuresexlovesounds was a colossal album that’s still selling now. When the albums ready, it’ll come out. His movie career has been great anyway.

    Side note 2: as long as rick ross is popular and gets a pass for his past, can’t no one say shit about Nsync.

  • Mes_Cudi

    JT should do someting with Drake, or hell, Eminem! Would sound awesome! But Jigga, naaahh.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    FutureSex/LoveSounds album is nice. That 3-6 Mafia joint on the album is hot. JT FutureSex/LoveSounds SOLD crazy numbers why bring up sumthin so petty?

  • RC

    Come on yall, anybody would feel slighted. He may be a little salty but its understandable.

    And every solo album Justin put out has done numbers. So much numbers that he can afford to take long breaks then come back and change the game. Not only that, the man makes Quality RnB. Quality! JT is certified in my book.

    Everyone one on this thread was bumping the shit outta FutureSex/LoveSounds. I swear man, niggas be str8 lying thru their teeth to try and stand out on a blog.

    People are giving everyone passes these days. They let these cats wear skinny jeans, kiss men, and lie about selling dope when they had a normal 9 to 5. I know I aint about to hear no bullshit about doing a song with JT.

  • http://www.wide6.com Timbaland

  • feenixa

  • Ac@pella!

  • BK

    canadian scrub couldnt last hr before gettin that head split open

  • http://youtube.com/thelyricalpaprsmackr Don One

    like after the whole janet fiasco..uknow, they had them awards a few weeks later where they had banned janet, but they let justin perform like twice and present awards..most black folks..well me atleast kinda aint feelin him as much anymore..that album with the pharrell and timbo production was dope musically..i just felt some kinda way when he got to shine while they blamed the whole thing on janet, he aint hold her down enough..u know, the whole white privledge thing kinda tainted his image to black folks..it was never really out there, but i feel like more on an unconscious level blacks as a whole just felt like this guy is gone ride with the blacks while its good, but when it got kinda hairy, uknow, he was like reppin tennessee and singing johnny cash songs..jayz know how he did janet

  • http://youtube.com/thelyricalpaprsmackr Don One

    look at jay in the picture

  • Ya Boy G

    ^ lol really? @ Don One

    stfu…she just did a charity event at the louvre. look that up. he sings, he makes good music. he dont do albums too much lately because acting pays more and gets you seen by more.
    As far as Janets tiddy poppin out they both knew. if the NFL/Broadcast company aint know they had the delay…8 to 10 seconds of saying “HOLY SHIT THATS JANET JACKSONS TIDDY” with a decoration on it. You dont do alotta shit making that much money. not cause shes black…ppl need to stop wit that shit…

    And as far as the quote. there you go. money and names dont mean shit to him. Quality does, ppl pay for this shit at he end of the day.

  • Don One

    Ya boy g, what are you talking about, bro? I was referring to the award show that was weeks after He pulled her boob out. She was banned and he ended up performing and presenting, and he str8 shitted on her. It is what it is, the fact that she’s black played a factor on her gettin banned from the award show that had the same producers as the super bowl that year, and him totally distancing himself from the situation and acting like he had no prior knowledge., I ain’t mad at him, and I never said he didn’t make good music. Thing is on some type of level he lost alot of respect in the black community after that incident. His first video he was str8 doin MJ. Niggas like me felt he should have been banned too, or declined to do the show out of respect for Janet..so years later wen Jayz don’t wanna be a part of his project it makes sense to me, and his face in that pic makes more sense to me.

  • Don

    Don…they asked them both to apologize at the Grammys….he did it and she refused…..

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lSufnXWhIE Saul Goode

    son sounds like an entitled bitch in that quote, especially with the passive aggressive jab.

    “Jay-Z has put out 11 albums…these aren’t a dime a dozen to me”

    FOH!

    His heart has always been on the suspect list since I seen him cry for his moms on MTV Punk’d.

  • Able Danger

    I can hear the HOV subliminals now;

    Pop stars want me lyrics in ink,
    Well cry me a river we Justdidn’t fall N’Sync.

  • CaliSteppin

    ^
    lmao! I can picture Hov saying that too

  • 215AllDay

    There are some idiots commenting. Stop with the Drake is the new Hov, you just sound foolish with that nonsense. Drake is average at rapping and singing. Stop. Justin is thirsty for Hov because he knows that his entire solo career has been on the back of Timbo and Neptunes productions to craft his sound, neither of which is hot right now.

    Oh and if most consider this to be the most watered down era of hip hop, maybe you shouldn’t be pounding your chest about the South running things.

  • the One

    How people forget about how JT treated Janet and how this clown is Timberland’s right hand man. Do you all forget who leaked the first tracks off blue print 3?? Short memories fuk JT!
