Hip-Hop Rumors: New Aaliyah Album: No Missy. No Timbaland.

UPDATE: Rumor has it Timbaland will contribute two songs to the new Aaliyah album.

Things change, but damn. I think some things just have to be, just because. And no, Missy and Tim ain’t the hottest in the hood these days. But still. No Missy or Timbaland on a new Aaliyah just ain’t right. Now, I think they should mix it up a bit and have some Drake in there. I don’t think they need to pretend like its the 90’s or 2000’s but they should respect A’s fans…current and past. That said, Missy and manager Mona Scott issued as statement about it all.

Mona:

“Although Missy and Timbaland always strive to keep the memory of their close friend alive, we have not been contacted about the project nor are there any plans at this time to participate. We’ve seen the reports surfacing that they have been confirmed to participate but that is not the case. Both Missy and Timbaland are very sensitive to the loss still being felt by the family so we wanted to clear up any misinformation being circulated.”

Missy:
“Tim and I carry Aaliyah with us everyday, like so many of the people who love her. She will always live in our hearts. We have nothing but love and respect for her memory and for her loved ones left behind still grieving her loss. They are always in our prayers.”

    My whole thing is how do they expect this album to actually work? Lets say she was alive today who would SHE consider going in the studio with? Drake or Tim and MIssy? The fans are smart enough to know this is all label politics. Not taking anything away from Drake, i think he’s very talented and done great things for his core fans. Drake core fans are not die hard Aaliyah fans. Where was Drake and his core fans in 1995-2002? 80% of drake core fan base didn’t buy Aaliyah One In a Million album. My whole thing is if the label decides to do the album, just do it the way Aaliyah would have wanted it done. Her team was Missy, Timbo, Static, and Ginuwine. It doesn’t motivate the real Aaliyah fans to purchase the new album if it doesn’t have that sound to it. Put this project in the hands of Timbo and Missy, lock them in the studio and they both will create a masterpiece.

  • Tim and Missy been much closer to her and
    they are not pressed on delivering an album from Aaliyah…..Drake make
    it seem like it is something that he has to do…These rappers just
    wake up in the morning thinking that they are God’s gift to music.

    Secondly, Since Tim and Missy were ACTUAL long time friends of hers
    and haven’t put out ANYTHING as a tribute to her, even though BOTH could
    have if they wanted to because they have studios and the means,to put
    something out now would be tacky. So much time has gone by and frankly,
    like so many great artists, their body of work lives on so let them rest
    in peace. Drake has no business whatsoever even being attached to the
    project.. his relationship with her, was only that of Groupie.. PERIOD..
    he can say what ever.. bottom line.. he is just a Groupie in the same
    industry she once worked.

    I don’t get it. Without Missy and Timbo’s input it’s even less of an
    Aaliyah album then it already is. “Enough Said” doesn’t even sound like
    an Aaliyah song “featuring Drake”, it’s just another Drake song, so
    obviously produced by 40, with an Aaliyah sample on it, I’m just saying.

    Drake doing this cause ain’t no real female R&B want to consensually sing his garbage. .

  • I think Drake has lost his damn mind on this one. I heard one of the tracks and it was aight but for the Queen that she was and still is to this day, all that wack cussing and bullshit he was doing was not a good look. That is like Jay-Z getting the right to produce Whitney Houston’s next album and putting dumb ass Kanye on it.

    • Kinda like Common & Maya Angelou?

  • Knlegend1

    NO Tim NO Missy NO spin by me.

  • DRAKE = LO$$

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    I just don’t want to hear no Aaliyah on those corny, boring, basic 40 beats. Just because Drake is an Aaliyah stan, doesn’t mean they should give the fans something that is forced and sounding like nothing she would ever really do. Aaliyah as ALWAYS had dope beats. And you know who did them? The guy that Drake and 40 should have contracted to do the album. They can still executive produce it but they should have Tim & Missy involved.

    If they are bitter about it (and I’m not sure if they are), why didn’t they just come up with the concept of an Aalliyah album themselves? They’ve had plenty of time to do so.

    • Blackstallion777

      because it’s not their call. They couldn’t do an Aaliyah album without the permission of a lot of people

  • BoldSpice

    Don’t bother putting the shyt out then. This cat was still sipping milk out of his momma when baby died. This gonna be dumber than when Eminem produced that 2pac album.

    • TupacLives

      you aint lyin..

  • mars_manfrom

    drake needs to leave this alone. i don’t even like dude like that and it makes me not want to listen to anything from him. not even his corny ass VOICE. i don’t care what he’s trying to do, but aaliyah’s music shouldn’t be tainted by his sensitive bullshit music. her music is good and will continue to be that way..drakes music will never have the impact aaliyahs did. if anything i see this making his fan base go way down.

    JOE! MISSY AND TIM WERE AALIYAH’S CREW HER FAM SO YEA IT’S DISRESPECT TO NOT INCORPORATE THEM IN THE NEW ALBUM.ANOTHER THING STOP ALL THIS FAKING LIKE IT ‘S THE 90’S SHYT WE KNOW IT’S 2012 BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP ANY GOOD MUSIC FROM ANY TIME FRAME TO BE DATED, AL GREEN STILL ROCKS OLD HIP HOP SMASHES TODAY’S GARBAGE BECAUSE IT IS TIMELESS. DRAKE IS NOTHING BUT A AN ANDROID WITH A LITTLE BOYS VOICE WHO HAS EARNED STREET CRED FOR IMITATING AND YEA FCK EM I SAID IT. AS FAR THIS CORE FANS BS MORE FOLKS LOVED AALIYAH THAN THIS NIGGA SO CUT THE FAKE PERCENTAGES. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW YOU BETTER HANG ON THE OLD SCHOOL FOR LIFE SUPPORT CAUSE YOU NIGGAZ NEED JUST LIKE PAYOLA RADIO NEEDS IT. TIMBO WILL DELETE YOU RECYCLED ASS NEW SCHOOL PRODUCERS DIONG THE SAME SOUND TRYING TO EAT SO ALL HAIL BLACKGROUND.

  • DRAKE??? WTH? He has no business on any Aaliyah album…where did this suggestion come from? And can we take a vote on that one please…You’re gonna have to do better than that

  • KevMoney2Beats
