Justin Timberlake Speaks On Relationship With Timbaland; Touring with Jay-Z?

(AllHipHop News) Frequent collaborators Justin Timberlake and Timbaland have made some great music together. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone’s Grammy Camp, Justin explains why the union between the pop singer and the Hip-Hop producer works so well.

“My relationship with Tim is a relationship that I have with nobody else in the world. We’re like brothers, really,” says Timberlake. “You have friends like that, friends you don’t have to say much to, but you know they just get who you are. That’s the relationship I have with Tim, where we go in the studio and kind of don’t even speak to each other.”

Justin’s upcoming comeback album The 20/20 Experience will heavily feature production by Timbaland. The first single off the LP, “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z, was a Timbo project as well the new track “Mirrors” that was just released this week.

“The Two Tim’s” prior collaborations produced the critically acclaimed FutureSex/Love Sounds. The four times platinum album featured Hip-Hop artists T.I. and Three 6 Mafia, and a remix to “Until The End Of Time” had added vocals from Beyoncé.

Even though this will be Timberlake’s first album in seven years, he’s confident the work he’s done with Timbaland for 20/20 will be a reflection of their great musical chemistry.

“We encapsulated ourselves in the studio and I didn’t tell anybody. I was just like, ‘Let’s make some music without all the hoopla of, like expectations. Let’s just make something that feels genuine from us.’ And I’m glad we were able to do that way because, for me, it’s the best stuff I’ve ever done.”

Timberland is the only hip-hop legend JT calls a friend. After performing together at the Grammys rumors are swirling around that Timberlake and Jay-Z will hit the road together for a 10-city stadium tour.

The 20/20 Experience is scheduled for release on March 19th.

    Well,it’s J.T. & Tim so u already know the album is gonna be certified platinum.

  • allhiphop is the some homo promoting bullshit a whole bunch of faggots

  • It’s becoming a pattern now Jay-Z grabs on to another artist, upstages them just to keep his music career afloat…He did it with Foxy, R-Kelly, Kanye, and now Justin…..O well I guess that how you stay relevant.

    • Chris

      Feelings will be caught.

    • Nemesis_Enforcer

      Something to criticize? Or something to take notes on if you are an artist who is fizzling out?

      • I would like to critize it because I believe that good music should speak for itself,and Jay-Z of all people has earned more success than any other rapper,so to continue to milk the cow untill there is no milk left, only proves that one day people like Jay-z will get forced out of the game, and loose his credentials oppose to knowning when to bow out gracefully…..And because of people like Jay-Z alot of artist don’t want to work with other artists because of this reason.

        Hip Hop is apart of the music industry, If the fans are buying your music then you will last until you say its over.

    • Q.

      The industry is rigged–that should be clear by now. And you know Jiggerman keeps himself at the top of the pyramid (scheme)…
      Get it?: Top of the pyramid. (for the conspiracy haters) LOL

    • I’ve got to agree with you..i’ve said it before on here..P.R is everything nowadays and has been since 2000..this is why you also see nas being a bit more public these days. How long have folks been talking about Jay-Z and Warren Buffet, even though they met once for a photoshoot but they are best friends. Jay and Obama..but of course they are best friends. He’s a master at pimping photo-op’s..i’m not knocking the hustle tho.

      • Guest

        Yup now illseed created a new post about it….I need to repost this over there…lol

    • Lyve Wire

      relevance is in the eye of who’s looking.

      • Raheem Classick

        And the people looking like what they see.

    • fabbidavisjr

      your right Upstaging is how u win in life….its called competition learn about

      • You are silly…competition is not joining forces with someone to steal there shine, then you look in their face and act like it’s a team effort when it’s all about person gain….You learn about it.

      • fabbidavisjr

        Iono about you but I’ve grown up all my life with friends and ain’t nothing sweater then beating them. And in real life when you have to feed your kids, you can care less what your coworkers think of you, as long as they respect your hustle. Stop knocking Jigga’s hustle it ain’t his fault he outshine everyone. Besides eminem because em murdered him on his own shit

      • bham-Jeff co.

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    • brotha_man

      u right about that….but he cant touch nas or Em. his paper long but lyrically and artistically hes 3rd place behind those two

    • firehawk17

      jay never upstaged r.kelly…not once.. kanye? yes..it was songs i said damn kanye snappin on this shit then Jay come in like pump the brakes i’ll show you how to do this son…lol r.kelly and jay could have done something epic..

    • mike malarkey

      nigga u gay

  • Justin caught Timbaland at a time he and Genuwine had a ton of unreleased music..I would say 95% of JT’s first solo album came from the pen tip of Ginuwine..this is backed up by Genuwine being background vocalist on a ton of these tracks..notice anytime you hear a JT album dropping you don’t hear anything musically from Timbaland or Gin for a minute..also Gin had been on the pr blitz with the wife for the better part of a year and here’s a JT album..now they aren’t anywhere to be found. This is like the Dream/Neyo situation with Beyonce..She gets a ton of credit for writing music that they wrote instead. Perception is everything in the game. Proof? Listen to Cry me a river and So anxious..listen at the break of each song..the vocal riffing pretty much the exact same.

    • ok

    • Raheem Classick

      (Ginuwine) dropped albums in > 96-99-01-03-05-09-11, (Justin Timberlake) dropped albums in > 02-06 / Please tell me what layoff did Ginuwine take, Please brush up on your music history.

      • You clearly cant do math…look at the numbers you put up..the two years JT put out albums Ginuwine didnt even have a single out..but I need to brush on my music history..the irony. You want a brush up yourself..google gin’s government name then drive yourself on over to ascap and ask for that man’s catalogue by name..you’d be truly surprised at the songs you didn’t know he’s written for other artists.

      • Raheem Classick

        Whatever U say ?

      • Of course it’s now whatever “you say”…hate to admit that after all that berating you were wrong?

      • Raheem Classick

        No I’m not wrong, We’re just not gonna agree.

      • Yet did you bother looking up anything I said? Nope, so of course you are under the impression you aren’t wrong but it’s cool. As the saying goes “Ignorance is bliss”.

  • Jay Z is an artist, not an MC, so he shouldn’t be held to the same standards.


    Y’all really arguingin over something dumb just because jt nd jay wanna go on tour together?? And so what if jt did have Genuwine on his album nobody cares the songs are good so leave it alone. B.T.W. can’t wait for the new album it’s gonna be rightous
