Timbaland may be the most
innovative producer of our time. He's arguably done more for other artists than
any other producer in Hip Hop (or now even pop) history. Whenever Tim gets behind the boards, we all know
something special is coming. At this point in his career he could be dubbed "The
Master Of Reinvention." There was even a time when producers attempted to mimic
his trademark stuttering drums which led Tim
to reinvent himself by using ridiculous sounds ("Are You That Somebody's" baby
cries anyone?) to make sure that that he always was one step ahead of the game.
But there's always been one glaring problem with Timothy Mosely...he can't create the same magic for himself as he
does for others. With that in consideration, Timbaland employs some A-list guests for his new album Shock Therapy. Will he succeed in the
one thing that his career is devoid from- an excellent album?
Just like how mixtape emcees like Lloyd
Banks, Fabolous and Joe Budden are excellent everywhere
else but their own albums, Timbaland
is with his production. Shock Value
is no different.
