Timbaland On Use Of Aaliyah’s Vocals

timbaland-aaliyah

In this portion of his interview with Revolt, Timbo explains why Aaliyah’s posthumous vocals particularly used in Drake and Chris Brown‘s singles did not work. He also mentions that Nas, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake have recorded a song called “Sinatra In The Sands”.

    Timbo comes off as a lame sometimes, well i guess arrogant is a better word… whatevs i guess he earned it

  • StarFox64

    its fucked up cuz the vocals are going to waste…

  • Dashing

    He’s right though. I don’t want to hear Aaliyah and Drake or Chris Brown. I’d rather hear over some dope Timbaland that works with her vocals or Missy.

    Tim speaks to Drake after he made “started from the bottom” and that is what made Tim realize that Drake is going to be here for a while? This just shows us one thing people. That Tim no longer knows music at all. He prob doesn’t even know who Avriel Epps is or for that matter frank ocean. He prob doesn’t event know about Chance the rapper yet. He probably thinks kendrick Lemar is a law firm. Tim you don’t know music, stick to telling baby girl stories

  • Regular Guy

    He’s right.
    But hey, we live in a world in where internet dwellers think they know more about hip hop than the people who laid the blueprint for it.

  • STINKMEANER

    yeah, tim has never been real cool with people using aaliyah’s vocals, and i don’t blame him. that is not a celebrity or history, that was really his friend, and lots of young rappers and singers want to use her vocals but they don’t make good enough music to deserve that.

    lets hear this timbo x nas though, cuz i’m ready for that

  • big mike

    this nigga sounds stupid and arrogant..same reason why jay stop fucking with him…nigga it aint the 90′s no more your not the top producer fuck outta here clown..missy already told us your a clown beat it nigga

  • Dashing

    Cats are clowns with short memories. Timbo is a legend in the game. One of the best hip hop producers of all time. Not to mention the producer of 2 of the biggest releases of the year with JT and Jay Z…. Chris Brown and Drake both reached out to HIM for records. He worked with Aaliyah, produced for her, co-wrote some of those unreleased songs. Ultimately, from a music standpoint no one’s word should count more than Timbo on this topic. Period…

  • fact checker

    how isn’t timbo the top producer when he produced justin’s album(s) & jay z’s album? the two most successful albums of the year….uhhh

    Cosign @Regular Guy

    These Internet nerds think their A&Rs and have more insight than ppl who been in this industry for years

  • Fuck Your Opinion

    Tim has had one hell of a year, Justin’s whole album and the majority of MCHG, dude is a living legend. I love how passionate he is about getting in the studio with legendary artists and making the best possible music, no bullshit, no “I’ll send you some beats” but locking in with them and creating amazing records. Nas is about to fuck the game up once again, Life Is Good was an incredible album and Im ready for round 2. Hip Hop >>>>>>>>

    didn’t he say Em, Jay & Justin? Or was that just wishful thinking on my part?

  • 99Problems

    U guys remember when Timbo was on steroids for a year and was feelin himself so much he was wearing wife beaters on TV? Now look at his fat ass. He has more rolls on his neck than bakery. Smfh

  • kayandgee

    the chris brown/aaliyah joint is actually not that bad, im feelin that alot! pause

  • PistolPistol

    Boards are blowing up saying EM is on that joint… Guess not. Woulda been dope

  • PistolPistol

    ^”Sinatra in the sand”

  • http://peonyisland78.wordpress.com carywashington25

    Timbaland said Nas had a song with Jay, Em, and JT. I’m looking forward to this…….

  • http://peonyisland78.wordpress.com carywashington25

    @PistolPistol – So Em’s not on Sinatra in the Sand, then? Why would Timbaland lie in his interview?

  • Rome

    Fat Timbo > Steroid Timbo. Musically of course.

  • PistolPistol

    ^ said him.. Not EM.
    Apparently.?

    He said nothing wrong, certain producers bring out certain shit in artists. Nas is great, but he sounds best on a Primo or Large Pro track. Em, Snoop & 50 are all great at what they do, but they sound best on Dre tracks, same thing with Jay & Just Blaze/Kanye and so on….
