In an interview with MTV, Hip Hop super producer Timbaland announced that he will produce Jay-Z‘s next album.
“He wants me to do the whole thing this time around,” Timbaland told MTV. “I’mma make it a classic too. You better believe it. It’ll be a monster! I always say this: You get a first single from me, I’mma get you up to gold. And it’s hard to get you up to gold in this day [and age].”
In 2000, Jay-Z and Timbaland created the summer anthem of 2000 when they teamed up for “Big Pimpin” featuring UGK.
“We wanna go to the world,” Timbaland added. “The world is ‘Big Pimpin’.’ ‘Big Pimpin’ ‘ is an international hit, so we wanna do 10 of those.”
Recently, Jay-Z has been on the road touring, but still plans on returning to making music full time in the near future.
“Jay should never chill,” Timbaland shared with MTV. “We had a long talk, and I really talked to him. Jay-Z does it for the love. That’s different. When somebody does it for the love, you don’t stop. He has everything, but he’s still current. A million people are buying his album regardless.”
Neither Jay-Z or Timbaland have made any announcements yet on when they will begin working on the new album, but Timbaland already has plans on setting aside at least three months for the project.
