(AllHipHop News) Greatest of all time talk usually falls on deaf ears unless the person who is speaking has a reputation that precedes them. During a recent interview, the 15+ year veteran producer Timbaland explained how his upcoming album could be his last, his “Purple Rain”and evidence that he is “the greatest who ever did it.”
While there is no release date for his fourth solo album entitled Opera Noir, Timbaland explains to Rolling Stone that it will be his “grand finale” and “my Purple Rain”. After stating that there will be no features on this album, Timbaland explained why this album will prove he’s “the greatest who ever did it”:
Yeah, this is my Purple Rain solo album that I’m going to put out. I have no features on it. It’s called Opera Noir and it’s the most innovative work I’ve ever done. It’s all about truth and what’s going on around us. It’s about my personal truth: It’s one of the things that MediaTakeOut will care about, but I’m telling you what happened. I’m telling you: At this point, this happened. I’m telling you at this date, I’m telling you that I did this. I’m telling you that she did this or he did that.
Timbaland’s last solo project, 2009’s Shock Value II featured 22 different artists and sold under 38,000 copies in its opening week.
