Nugget of the week: Timbaland



Timbaland is one of the most influential producers in recent history and is the mastermind behind many-a-hits I and the "unitards" have dropped it to. This week Timbaland stepped out from behind the mixing board and released his first solo album, Shock Value. Its getting its fair share of criticism from the musical "powers that be," but I don't really care to delve too deep into the psychology of the man behind the music. I just love myself a vapid club banger, especially if it helps me forget that I'm on a elliptical machine and I want to kill myself that its only been 6 minutes and 24 seconds since I got on the damn thing. "Give It To Me" will likely be in heavy rotation on my ipod whilst sweating away. Honorable mention goes to Nelly Furtado and eternal nugget Justin Timberlake for their contributions to the song.

One caveat: Although I have mad love for Timbaland...I'm not sure I love the fact that most of the song disses another musical nugget, Prince. You can't win them all though, so I guess I'm going to look past that for now.

scott storch is definitely disgusting and timbaland may very well be dissing him but i also read stuff that he (or more specifically JT) is dissing prince. i should do more research, but hell, i'm just a third-rate blogger and blogging is not about fact checking. =)
