Yup, Charlamagne’s on it, but no, he’s not rapping. Instead it’s some deep quotables from the radio personality that kick off the song with Tink handling the rapping duties. It’s over a minimal production from Timbaland, who concludes the recording telling the Breakfast Club that Tink’s album is one of the best he’s done since Aaliyah’s. Dang. We shall see…
Timbaland, producer of last week’s Rick Ross featuring Jay Z collab “Movin Bass”, joined The Breakfast Club today and actually premiered the original version of the track helmed by Chicago’s Tink. Everyone trades bars and this is how it was intended to be heard. Hey, better than last week’s version.
And here’s the full interview as Timbo also blasts the Aaliyah movie.
Timbaland produces this A-list collab for Hood Billionaire dropping November 24th. It’s a clearly different direction for Timbaland with “Movin Bass” possessing more of a raw, true rap sound. It’s not a track aimed at the charts, but it also feels like more of the same from Rozay lyrically. Not that I expected something totally different. Jay Z doesn’t contribute with any verses, just a less than inspiring hook about staying on top. Does this inspire you more than me? Listen below.
Rick Ross links with K. Michelle and a new producer for him, Timbaland, for this new Hood Billionaire single “If They Knew”.
This song elicited a “Go Figure!” moment within me because this comes not even 24 hours after I posted the final NBA Awards post wherein I called out Rick Ross for doing more of the same. “If They Knew” is actually somethin’ different. The Timbaland sound is unique on its own and he met Rozay halfway for a beat here that matches his style as well. Plus, K. Michelle puts down a solid, booming chorus. Not bad, Rozay, not bad.
Ok, Timbaland and 3 Stacks?! I’m in on that collab, especially after its smooth sound in the impromptu preview Timbaland uploaded to Facebook above. The female voice? How about Chicago’s Tink? Big look for her if/when this song comes out.
