Timbaland Talks Origins, Progression + New Music On The Breakfast Club
Timbaland took a moment to sit-in with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee on The Breakfast Club to discuss a two-decade-long career and what corners of the musical landscape are left to explore for the seasoned hit-maker. The chat began with some ritual shoutouts, praising Justin Timberlake as the funkiest (and only) white boy he’d ever work with, Missy Elliot for never compromising her perfectionism and Jay Z for his sense ever-industrious nature. He went on to discuss his involvement with Fox’s forthcoming Terrence Howard-led music industry exposé Empire as the show’s musical director and how the show has influenced his own sense of industry and his career’s trajectory. He goes on to critique the attention span-less consumer of modern-day culture and how it’s forced him and producers of his tier to buck trends instead of trying to keep up, which led to the push of his new artist Tink and how she reminds him of the earliest and most prolific segments of his career. And all at the age of just 19. There’s still no word on when we’ll get the full treatment of their project, but there are plenty of little snippets for you to taste in the meantime. Jump back and check those if you’ve yet to do so. Watch Timbaland chop it up with the The Breakfast Club crew down below.
