Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label has announced the signing of superproducer and frequent Jay-Z collaborator Timbaland. Via Exclaim:
Jay-Z announced the news on his Life + Times blog by posting a picture of him and Timbaland hanging out in the control room of a studio (above). The simple message accompanying the picture reads, “Roc Nation welcomes Timbaland to the family.
Timbo and Jigga most recently worked together on Justin Timberlake’s new single “Suit and Tie,” but Timbaland was also responsible for the beats on such Jay-Z hits as “Big Pimpin’“and “Jigga What, Jigga Who.” Hopefully this will speed up the release of Timbaland’s long-delayed Shock Value III album.
