Dr. Dre And Timbaland Team Up For HP Promotion
In addition to promoting their Hewlett-Packard partnerships, Jimmy Iovine hopes for a long overdue Dre and Timbaland collaboration.
From Shaunta to Game more recently Hayes, it seems the degrees of separation between Dr. Dre and Timbaland is getting smaller and smaller. Mumblings of a collaboration between the two legendary producers will likely only grow louder after both made an appearance at a Culver City, California high school Wednesday night.
The pair were on hand as part of a promotional event for Hewlett-Packard, which has endorsement deals with both Dr. Dre and Timbaland. A notoriously reclusive Dr. Dre played the role of emcee for Timbaland, who performed a handful of songs from his most recent album, Shock Value 2. In addition to a free, catered concert, HP also donated $10,000 worth of computer equipment to the school.
"We should be so lucky," said Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records Chairman Jimmy Iovine, in regards to a Dre and Timbaland collaboration. "I can only get them so close. The rest is up to them."
