Jay-Z Signs Timbaland To Roc Nation

Timbaland is the latest artist to join Jay-Z's Roc Nation imprint.

Jay-Z has officially announced the signing of Timbaland to his Roc Nation label.

The Brooklyn, New York rapper broke the news on his Life+Times website, posting a picture of the two talking in the studio. "Roc Nation welcomes TIMBALAND to the family," reads the caption.

The pair has worked together throughout their respective careers. In 1998, Timbo produced Jay's hit "Nigga What, Nigga Who," while he returned the favor for the following year's "Lobster & Scrimp." Collaborative hits also include "Big Pimpin," "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" and "Off That" featuring Drake. Most recently, the Virginia native produced Justin Timberlake's new single "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z, and he expressed interest in recording a full-length LP with Hov.

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.

    damn M.I.A also part of the Roc dont be surprised she gets a beat from Timbo and a collab with Jay E which could be a single
    • Anon
      She did that "Come Around" track with Timbaland years ago, so the possibility of them collaborating again is likely, given the shared label. Jay Elec...well, he's Jay, so let's not get our hopes up there.

      Real talk, 2 ugly ass dudes.
  • Brad Jones
    Timbaland with Jay-z's Roc Nation can mean better beats for Meek Mill,Wale,Rihanna,J Cole and more. That's a power move on Jay-z part cause you always need a hot hip hop & r&b producer like Timbaland.
  • Its Um
    Happen to his own record label, the Mosley experience or something like?

      "Timbaland's MMG will have his music distributed through Interscope/Universal, and be on Roc Nation, who's parent company is Live Nation (the old Tickermaster), and have access to arenas, music placements (sports events and movies), public relations, and talent on the Roc Nation/Live Nation roster" ^ hopefully this answers your question

      You need to detox your own ass
    • Anonymous
      Not really. Everybody's over detox. Hip Hop is doing well, and will do so with or without a detox album.
    • yocuz
      foreal, detox is in the past. I think the thought that one day there will be a detox album is actually destroying hiphop. we need all these new cats to get all the hype and attention they deserve. Im a huge fan of golden era but its time for more hiphop heads to listen to whats going on right now in the game
