Timbaland Signs With Jay-Z’s Roc Nation
It has been announced today that Timbaland will join Jay-Z’s team.
Jay-Z’s blog has posted the announcement that legendary beatmaker Timbaland will be signing with Roc Nation.
The post bears the title “And I won’t surrender it with beats by Timbaland”, a quote from the Jay and Tim collabo “Hola’ Hovito” off The Blueprint.
The pair has worked on a few hit singles together. In 1998, Timbo produced “Nigga What, Nigga Who” and the following year’s “Lobster & Scrimp.” More recently, they have collaborated on “Big Pimpin,” “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “Off That” featuring Drake.
Most recently, Roc Nation signed M.I.A., Meek Mill, Elijah Blake and Jahlil Beats to subsets of the company including the label and management. Timbaland has recently invested in 50 Cent’s SMS Audio and began producing for Justin Timberlake.
