Do you know what today is?

It's Shock Value day, did everyone go out like good fans and buy a copy? I did and have been listening to it non stop. I have to say it's a grower. At first I was like "naa I ain't feelin' it" but now as the hours go by, I'm starting to like it.

How about for everyone else, do you like it? I know there was a leak awhile ago but has your opinion about it changed at all? I'm really diggin' "Bombay" and "Miscommunication" I'm really happy to see Hannon's name on a co-production as well but we'll go into the liner notes on another post.

Hope ya'll copped the album to give our man Timbo support. The Chronicles team (myself included) will be giving their reviews shortly so stay tuned. In the meantime look for a small change tomorrow here on The Chronicles....

Happy Shock Value Day! :D

Timbaland announces his 2nd single

I won't ruin it for ya'll, I'll just let you watch:

2nd single announcement

So how do ya'll feel about the news?

Allhiphop talks with Timbo

" The music took a big leap over the last two years. What prompted this change on your part?

Timbaland: My sound is always changing, so I can’t pinpoint myself. Once I think someone’s got it, I’ll change it up and that happens all the time. I don’t try to do that; it just comes natural to me. Sometimes I don’t like my sound, it’s just nagging to me, sometimes I’m just like "This is trash," but that’s just me being a hard critic."

Props to Claire for the info!

Timstrumental of the Week

OK, last week I dropped Tim & Mag's official first single, Czar went and threw up HERE WE COME, the 1st single off TIM'S BIO, so in continuing that theme here goes the 1st 'street' single off INDECENT PROPOSAL. DROP mighta been the first video, but about a year before the cd dropped, this was pegged as the jumpoff, promo and vinyl were shipped....I cannot believe this song aint take off!

ROLL OUT featured Petey Pablo (before RAISE UP stardom) and Sebastian. Tim - on his verse made his voice sound the way it did way back when on that Jodeci track from '93, and Magoo? He keeps it Magoo.

This is a classic to me, I like how it sounded different too. Everynow and then Tim will be doin a 'signature' sound (like MY LOVE/ICE BOX/ANONYMOUS/SEXYBACK/WAY I ARE), and just when you expectin something else along those lines, BAM!...comes that left hook right outta nowhere. ROLL OUT was just that typa track.

Timbo talks more with Seacrest

Here's a short interview Tim did with Ryan Seacrest. He talks about his album and more Brittany Spears ambitions. A come back album? All Timbo? Hmmmm


Bjork "Earth Intruders" Snippet and News

Here is what has reported to be Bjork's first single off her new album Volta, "Earth Intruders" produced by Timbaland. What do ya'll think? Personally, I can't make a judgement call off of 10 seconds of a track but it's good to at least know what Tim & Bjork have been cookin' up.

The track will be released as a digitally downloadable single on April 9th according to her website and if you haven't seen it yet here is the cover art for Volta.

Definitely looking forward to this. Thanks to Hypnotic for the snippet.


T.I. and Slim Thug talk Timbaland

Here are a couple of interviews with T.I. and Slim Thug talking a little bit about working with Timbaland:

T.I. Full Interview

".....Other characters slated to guest on the disc include Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Ciara, Akon, Tweet, and R. Kelly — not to mention Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, T.I.'s partners on the Grammy-winning smash "My Love."

Full Article

"....Last week, Slim — on the phone from Dallas, where he was in the studio with another VA super-producer, Timbaland — revealed that he was never signed to Star Trak in the first place."

Great read on that Slim Thug article. I always thought he was on Star Trek. Big thanks to Barrie from Entertainment Weekly and my man Roderick for the articles!

Let's do this ya'll!!

NY Times Review of Shock Value

Definitely a solid review:

"Even when he doesn’t have the microphone, Timbaland often overshadows whoever does. He’s not one of those musical therapists who make singers sound more like themselves. On the contrary, he prides himself on challenging his clients. They have to find a way to work around his weird beats. (Many of his productions don’t really make sense until you hear them a few times; he loves songs that sound wrong at first.) His music isn’t predictable, but it’s definitely recognizable. In that sense he’s among the most assertive pop producers of all time."

Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Tim stans? It's Friday, and that means another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. Now, I know I've been gone for a couple of weeks, but I'm back and here to stay.

It's the last Friday in March, and since March marks the month of Tim's birth, this week's installment are all samples from Tim/Tim & Magoo albums. And since I've been gone for two weeks, I'm showcasing three samples this week, which all come from TV show or movie themes.

First off is "Here We Come" off the classic Tim's Bio album. The track samples the famous theme song from "Spiderman." Now, a few years ago, I heard a story of how "Here We Come" came about. The way the story goes is that there was a girl humming the Spiderman theme song in studio builiding. Tim heard her humming the tune, and brought her in the studio to record it. He then just layed down the drums and bassline, and out came "Here We Come." If you listen to the "Here We Come Timstrumental," you can tell that the person doing the theme song isn't Tim, Missy, or Magoo, so there might be some validity to the story.

Second sample that I'm going to showcase is "We at it Again" off the Romeo Must Die Soundtrack. The main guitar samples the theme song from a 1960s spy/science fiction British TV show called "The Prisoner." No story behind "We at it Again," except Tim has done a million different versions of the track (I think we're at 6 versions and counting). I love the way Tim sampled the track!

The last Tim sample for this week is "Naughty Eye" from the thrid Tim and Magoo album, Under Construction Part 2. This might be my favorite track from the album. It samples the theme from the 1907s movie, "The Girl from Petrovka" Now, there is a story behind "Naughty Eye." Tim actually did not sample the theme song from the movie or the soundtrack. Instead, Tim sampled a break beat sample compilation that featured the theme song on one of its series.

So that's it for this week. I hope you enjoyed the samples for this week, and check back next week for another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week.

Danja News

It's Nick here with your weekly Danja fix. First, the news. Danja's song on T.I.'s newest is titled "Tell 'Em I Said That."

I decided to take a page from J-Boogie's book and start a little conspiracy theory: Danja's ghost-productions. Liner notes for Danja tracks read like this: "Danjahandz Muzik (All rights o/b/o itself and Danjahandz Muzik adm. by W.B.M. Nysuc Corp.) (SESAC)." SESAC, his publishing company, tells me some interesting stuff. First of all, it lists some unreleased Justin Timberlake and Katharine McPhee songs:

Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Tennman Tunes
(i) Virginia Beach
W B M Music Corp
(i) W B Music Corp
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Justin Timberlake
(i) Tim Mosley
SESAC Work Number:

(i) Universal Music Publ
Universal-PolyGram Intl T
W B M Music Corp
Bale'wa M Muhammad
(i) Candice Clotiel Nelson
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Katharine McPhee
SESAC Work Number:

and these two strange songs with seemingly no artist, but the same writing team as Katharine McPhee's:

Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Street Lyrics Publishing
W B M Music Corp
(i) W B Music Corp
(i) Corte Ellis
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
SESAC Work Number:

(i) Universal MCA Music Publi

Bale'wa M Muhammad
(i) Candice Clotiel Nelson
(i) David Morris
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
SESAC Work Number:

But that's beside the point. SESAC lists Danja as a writer of Utada's "Exodus '04", "Let Me Give You My Love", and "Wonder Bout" and Jennifer Lopez's "He'll Be Back." It doesn't list Xzibit's "Hey Now (Mean Muggin)", but Tim does shout him out at the end of the song. Finally, SESAC lists this song under Danja's repertoire:

Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Virginia Beach
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Timothy Mosely
(i) Unaffiliated
SESAC Work Number:

Sounds like N.O.R.E.'s "Get Down (Ooou Ooou)" to me. What do y'all think?

Tim to produce Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake Collabo

****Timbaland will produce a remake of the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell classic "You're All I Need To Get By" featuring Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. The song was originally a Motown hit back in 1968 and was re-made more recently by Method Man featuring Mary J. Blige.

The threesome will head into a Los Angeles area recording studio this week to record the Spears/Timberlake duet that will appear on Spears new album.

Earlier this month, Timbaland approached Justin to plead for him to help propel Britney back to the top of the charts.

He said: "I feel her pain, it really bothers me. I asked Justin, 'How would you feel about me working with Britney? Would you do it with me?' He said he would."

A source said: "Britney was extremely touched that Justin had been in contact. Going into the studio is Justin's way of helping her get better."

Britney checked out of Malibu's Promises rehab centre last week. Shortly before she was admitted, she shocked the showbiz world with her bizarre behavior which included shaving her head****


I'm interested in hearing what Tim does with the beat. It'll be hard to top the RZA produced Method Man & Mary J joint from back in the day. Props to Big A as always!

Props to Nick for this, The Chronicles team is on it!


2 More Articles on Tim

Check out this Village Voice Article

Pretty harsh review I have to say. I have to wonder if people really listen to Tim, really know his music or just look up past articles about his other productions and write them down. Bubba wasn't a pawn yet Ms. Jade was? Come on! Tim's music is definitely not for everyone and his current pop wolrd conquest also doesn't sit well with people but listen to the man, he's making music for fun, dude is happy he's not worried about what music is supposed to sound like, he never has been.

Also check this USA Today Article

"Scott is not really in my league," Timbaland says. "I don't dislike him. I like him, but as a producer he can't see me. He don't have a fan base like I've got."



Tim on "Heavy Rotation"

From MTV Mixtape Monday 'Hood Heavy Rotation:

Redman (featuring E3) - "Fire"
Stimuli - "Look at U"
Timbaland (featuring Dr. Dre, Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliott) - "Bounce"
Lil' Flip - "Single Mother"
Yung Berg - "Sexy Lady"
The Alliance featuring Fabo - "Tattoo"
Young Jonez - "Get Up Out My Face"
Redman - "Gimme One"
KRS-One and Marley Marl - "Hip-Hop Lives"
Timbaland (featuring Keri Hilson) - "Miscommunication"
Lil Wayne - "Imagine"

Tim ain't messin' around. That "Bounce" joint is nuts! And Keri did her thing on "Miscommunication"

World Wrestling Entertainment is pleased to officially announce it has signed a deal to work with Timbaland, the world-famous record producer, song writer, rapper and huge WWE fan. Timbaland is an avid WWE Divas fan, and has big plans to use some of the Sexiest Women in Television in his next video. (No word yet on which lucky Divas will film with Timbaland.)

“WWE is extremely excited about the opportunity to work with Timbaland. We promise the Divas will help make Timbaland the hottest music video ever,” said Kristin Prouty, WWE’s Vice President of Entertainment Relations.

Timbaland’s second solo album, Timbaland Presents Shock Value, will be released worldwide April 3 on Interscope Records.

Timstrumental of the Week

Things are heatin' up this week. Most fans have either downloaded it already or are gettin ready to stake out their local retailers for it. The new TIMBALAND album. So on the eve of the cd comin out, I tought it would be fitting to take it back to Timbaland's first official release as an artist.

UP JUMPS DA BOOGIE by Magoo & Timbaland. Yeah...that's how it was on the single's cover and in Billboard Magazine when they first came out...Magoo before Tim.
Tim was on a hot streak, following the Aaliyah, Ginuwine & Missy albums, plus he had hit records with SWV and Total charting.
10 years on the song still sounds crazy, I dare you not to get all "bobbleheaded" to this track. Here's hopin' Timmy will still be droppin gems 10 years from now.

Pretty much the samee info we all know about Tim though I liked the part at the end about hearing Kelis in the next studio over. Too bad about Jay Z's "Ain't I" I think Tim was misquoted saying he was "disappointed in Jay" I think it was more he was dissapointed the track didn't make the cut. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it, the leak can't be too far away. Props to Intro for this!


You think you know your Timbo?

So you're a Timbo fan right? Maybe even a Tim stan? But how well do you think you really know him? Favorite food? Color? Who he's worked with? Well take this quiz and find out.

Now I thought I was a Timbo stan for sure but there were a couple on the quiz that I missed so a groupie I shall be. Now if it was all about Tim's music that might be a different story. They may have to include "mega-stalker" as a possible outcome.

Let us know how ya'll did! Props to TimboFan for the link.


Coldplay's next album

We've read the interviews, we've heard all about the mutual respect they have for one another, we've heard the callabos thus far, but now it is official: Timbaland will produce Coldpaly's next album!

**** Coldplay have hired Timbaland to produce their new album.

The British band have asked the American hip-hop mogul to take the helm on their upcoming fourth LP and help them come up with a fresh sound.

Timbaland is thrilled the group, fronted by Chris Martin, have chosen him to be their producer and insists he cannot wait to get "into their heads".

He said: "I will try to get into their heads, to see what they thinking about. I will just try to figure out how they are feeling. And if they are feeling a certain way, I will go by that. It's more about everyday life then it is about music."

Timbaland has worked with some of the biggest names in pop, including Missy Elliott, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez and P Diddy.

He masterminded Justin Timberlake's worldwide hit album FutureSex/LoveSounds and also produced Nelly Furtado's singles Promiscuous and Maneater.

Chris co-wrote Nelly's song All Good Things (Come to an End) with the Canadian singer, Timbaland and Nate 'Danja' Hills.

He originally recorded backing vocals on the track but his record label EMI allegedly stopped the version from being released.

Timbaland & Bobby Valentino

We've all heard the Timbo produced first single called "Anonymous" but did you know Tim also produced another track for Bobby Valentino called "Rear View"? Slated to be his second single let's hope Tim brings the heat with it. I wasn't too impresed with "Anonymous" it sounds too much like "My Love" None the less it's good to see these two working together. To read the full article click here.

Now speaking of Bobby V and Timbaland, did you know Bobby V used to be a part of the group Mista? And that their second album had production by Timbo? No one has ever heard this unreleased album so I'm sure it's sitting in the Timbo vault along with all the unrelased goodies. Read more here.

Props as always to Big A for the links!

D.O.E "Piano Man" Video


The Shock Value Leak

Yes Shock Value has leaked as of yesterday. You can easily find the link if you look around the net but it will not be posted here on The Chronicles. Personally, I'm still holding out until the 3rd but word is "Bounce" is incredible. I have had the chance to listen to "Miscommunication" which is simply amazing, Keri's voice is magic.

I hope all of you will show Tim some love come next Tusday and buy the album. Actually I don't even need to say that, I know it's a given ya'll big time fans!

If you have heard the album, tell us what you think in the comment section.


Nephew & Timbaland

Despite what was previoulsy reported the Danish group Nephew will not be on Tim's Shock Value. Here is the latest update via Nephew's blog:

****Unfortunelaty Nephew is not on the track list of the upcoming Timbaland album. But the contact between Nephew and the Amaerican producer is well established.

Marcus Spence, CEO of Mosley Music Group has made the following statement:

"After we made contact with Nephew early December Timbaland unfortunately ended up fighting against time getting his album finished before deadline. The past months have seen him being on tour with Justin Timberlake, in and out of various studios to finish mixing the album – and also finishing new tracks – unfortunately it was not possible to get the Timbaland/Nephew track done in time, but we will continue the collaboration later this year.

Timbaland is a big fan of Nephew."****

For more on Nephew and who the are and what they're about, check out their myspace Hopefully the callabo will one day occur.

Props to Big A for the info!

Timbaland & T.I.

Here is yet another article from Entertainment Weekly about Tim's work with T.I. For all you production heads there's talk of Tim's Ensoniq ASR-10 which he has worked with since Ginuwine's "Pony" days. Great article and I look forward to hearing the final product from T.I and Tim.

Check your newsstands on Monday for the magazine and thanks to Barrie Gordon from Entertainemnt Weekly for the news!


Tim talks about his past

Check out yet another article in Entertianment Weekly on Timmy:

****Timothy “Timbaland” Mosley has been excelling at everything. It seems the super producer/rapper has the midas touch, as he has brought success to many big names such as Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, and more. While his previous attempts at making his own album weren’t successful, Tim is making another attempt with Shock Value (due April 3), and it features everyone from Elton John and Dr. Dre to Fall Out Boy. The album is so chock-ful that a contribution from one of hip-hop’s heaviest, Jay-Z, did not make the cut. The album’s deadline was hours away and Jay Z’s track was still incomplete so Tim had no choice but to eliminate it from the record. “Jay’s really disappointed me,” he says.

One man who has tried to take away from Timbaland’s success has been one-time collaborator hip-hop producer Scott Storch. In 2002, Storch was a keyboard player for Timbaland, even playing piano on “Cry Me A River,” which he claimed to have written the hook for. Tim disses Storch on the newly released Shock Value single “Give It To Me” (I’m a real producer and you just the piano man”. Storch quickly shot back: On “Built Like Dat,” he claims that he and Tim’s engineers are the true authors of Tim’s hits. Tim broached the subject of his feud with EW. “I know he got a little record out,” Tim says. “I just want him to destroy his career. Because that’s what he’s doing. But I gotta be real smart. The more I talk about him, the more I big him up…I gotta pray on it.”

And for the first time ever, Tim speaks publicily about when he was shot at age 17. He was doing work as a DJ, and held a series of menial jobs, including washing dishes at a Red Lobster, where he was constantly bumping heads with a local thug. One night, Tim’s tormentor wandered into the kitchen as he was punching the clock to leave. “I got somethin’ for ya,” the guy said. “Oh yeah?” Tim retorted. “What you got?” His nemesis then pumped off a gunshot from a weapon hidden inside a bag; the bullet passed through Tim’s neck and lodged in his right shoulder (fragments remain to this day). One positive thing out of the incident? The shooting helped him form a bond with 50 Cent. “I’ll tell you this,” Tim says, ”if you get shot and you survive, you feel like your;’e an incredible hulk. Them bullets don’t hurt when they go in. But then they got that burnin’, that acid burn. God damn! It feels like a stove burning in your blood. You feel like any minute you gonna be dyin.” And he continues. “I been through some junk,” he sighs. “It ain’t all been peaches and cream.” *****

Timbaland in GQ

This is without a doubt one of the best articles I have ever read about Tim.

Page 1

Page 2

Page 3

Page 4

Page 5

Page 6

Dope article! 600 grand a track? GOT DAMN! Be on the look out for the Shrek The Third and Kung Fu Panda soundtracks. Nice to get the real reasoning behind the Jodeci/Tim split verus just speculation. "Get Ur Freak On" in 2 minutes?!? And let's hope Tim keeps turning out his masterpieces in all genres of music.

Im my opinion Tim is a genius tens steps of everyone, but the sacrifice for that is perhaps being lableled quiet or socially ackward. It's hard to roll with a genius, they just don't think like the rest of us so let them do their thing, back up give them some space. It's good to see Tim laughing now and enjoying himself. Sure the dude is cocky, it's part of the whole space he's in at the moment but dude deserves it. He has forever changed the way we listen to music. What ya'll think?


Bjork talks Timbo

Check out the new interview on Pitchfork

Nice to see Tim just letting go and being more open to others with his music. There has been a huge change in Timbo these last 2 years and it's refreshing to finally see the man having fun and just going with the flow more.

Can't wait for Bjork's album! Props to Timbofan for the info!


Shock Value Preview

Here is a taste of each of the entire Shock Vaule tracklisting.

Timstrumental of the Week

Figured I'd use this week to take a lil break from the Superfriends to highlight a track that blew me away when it dropped. Beanie Sigel's IN THE CLUB. The track was first featured on the BACKSTAGE soundtrack compilation by DJ Clue in 1999.

What struck me was how different it sounded from Timmy's 'sound' at the time but still had that Tim feel. Does that make sense?! It showcased Tim's versatility to me, all the reviews for that album always namedropped that song as one of the highlights, so I dont get that it never exploded on the charts when the video for it came out. Thank God it was released as a single too, or we might never have heard the DJ Clue-less version (by far the superior one), and we would never have gotten this incredible Timstumental.



Timbaland In The Studio

All I can say is DAMN! April 3rd ladies and gentlemen! Props to my girl Timbalandchick for the link!

Timbaland & Rockstar

***Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. TTWO, is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with super-producer Timbaland to present Beaterator for the PSP system. Developed by Rockstar Leeds, Beaterator will be available this summer.

"Music has always been a hugely important part of everything we do here," said Sam Houser, Founder and Executive Producer of Rockstar Games. "Two years ago, we launched a web-based version of Beaterator on our own website and people really embraced it. That inspired us to build and create something very interactive and unique. Having Timbaland involved in the game is a real honor and only adds to our excitement about the title."

"I've always been a huge fan of Rockstar and love playing their games," said Timbaland. "I'm thrilled to be partnering with them and making music for Beaterator. I cannot wait to get this in the hands of our fans!"

Beaterator for the PSP system is both a powerful music mixer with robust beatmaking features, as well as a highly addictive collection of original music and rhythm games and challenge modes - all available in the palm of your hand.***

Gone for a Minute

What's up all my Tim stans?!?! Just letting everyone know that the Chronicles will be down until further notice. Nothing to get nervous or scared about, we're just having a few technical difficulties. Trust me, we'll be up and runnning again in no time.

Peace and Love,
