A master of rhythm and melody, Timbaland always knew he had a gift when it came to music. He'd put it to good use in producing a number of groundbreaking works for the likes of Missy Elliott, Ginuwine, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. But with fame came delusion and addiction, which trumped his extreme talent. Now, sober and revitalized, Timb has fallen in love with the art form again and set his sights on a new goal: create a classic that will mark the next chapter in his career, just as Quincy Jones did with Thriller.

The video was amazing. Timbaland really was at one with himself and talked about a lot of things in goin through too. So I appreciate this video a lot. Hopefully anyone lookin into makin music or whatever it is you want to do don’t let your demons stop you. Together we can do anything and that’s something that hit me. Creating a masterpiece. Anyway that beat in the end was beautiful!
*these 25 minutes, recharged my energy. i'm a self made music producer, made 3 songs, got down because of very low exposure, but now i know, music is for your own self, if you are satisfied for yourself, it does not matter how others see it.*
Yikes! This interview is awkward: it's apparent that this interviewer has no idea about Timbaland or his background and only his later pop commercial collaborations w/ Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, and Jay-Z 😬 Please whomever is in charge of curating this interview: choose a more qualified candidate to interview talent next time.
son of mantronik! that all i got to say! those off beat patterns he did put him on top for his style!! funny how NEW YORK cats in that period lost how to do manual drums on their tracks. timbo made them niggas look like preschoolers!!
Thank you Timbaland! I'm dealing with my own substance abuse issues and wondering can I get my shit together before it's to late. When you talked about what T.I. said and how that simple but powerful observation of how God deals with us helped you I needed to hear that.
Many people know most of the hits were made by DanjaHandz, Storch and other ghost producers. Timbaland is mostly ,,just,, trademark like Mike Will Made It for example.
We should pay tribute do Danja instead, not Timbo
Funny how they got ol white boy in the Timbos. Not just any white boy, but this guy. Beyond reaching and over EXTRA..Fucking so stereotypical I cant with this complex shit anymore un-subscribed. Cornballs
I know exactly what hes talking about when he said god just said "no more" during his addiction. Being an ex heroin addict of 4 years it happened to me. One day god hit me with a feeling and i was like enough is enough and i got some suboxone and detoxed myself and never looked back, that was 5 years ago. Everyone alway says heroin is one of the hardest drug to come off of and it is but, from my experience quitting is the easy battle, staying off of it is the war. If you can stay strong and make it thru the first year, the hard part is over. You will come out the other side noticeably stronger and confident that there aint no obstacle you cant get over and the stresses of life and the thoughts of "how am i gonna get thru this" decline drastically. One good thing that came out of my addiction is that i am stronger and my confidence is higher. I no longer worry about things because "I KNOW" ill be victorious in battle.

Give them pounds, now look who it be (who it be)

Q. Can you name the artist and song which was produced by Timberland?
p.s. epic interview
Is it me or any message gets this extra level, once delivered from a place that, had it - lost it - got it back...or maybe, that extra level and that missing puzzle of getting it right in the first place is just.......to be humble...who knows....
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
