Timbaland Releases Drake & Jay Z-Assisted "Know About Me"
Timbaland drops "Know About Me," a selection featuring Jay Z, Drake and James Fauntleroy.
Timbaland's Jay Z, Drake and James Fauntleroy-assisted selection "Know About Me," a track that has been previewed recently, has been released in full.
"I just got back home," Drake raps on the track. "40 days on vacation / No one's killin' the game, shit is all for the takin'."
Drake also rhymes about feeling like he's the greatest of the genre.
"Who you say is the man?" Drake raps. "What the fuck is the deal / Really do it the best, I'm DJ Khaled for real."
Jay Z is listed on the track as a guest, but only appears as a speaker at the start of the cut.
"It's like Walt Disney around this," Jay says as one of his brief statements on the song.
Timbaland appears as a rapper on the first verse and handles hook duties on the track.
In July, Timbaland said that he and Jay Z adopted Drake.
"When Drake did ‘Started From The Bottom,’ it was a total different sound," Timbaland said. "Then Drake told me, he said, ‘Man, I had to really battle with myself. I want to be the first person to change.’ So, when he said that I was like, ‘He’s gonna be around for a long time.’ So, talked to big brother Jay and I was like, ‘Yo, we gotta embrace this young soldier. You gotta embrace this guy. We gotta put out hand around him’…And we adopted Drake.”
Timbaland's production has been prominent this year, as he contributed to Jay Z's Magna Carta...Holy Grail and Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience's two installments.
