Timbaland suffers from hair loss – also known as alopecia – and recently decided to mitigate some of the effects by getting a hair transplant.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (September 13), the legendary producer proudly showed off his new hairline and explained his reasoning for going under the knife.
“Working out, changing your body, I can put the work in,” Tim began. “This one — I have to go get work. There’s no getting around it. I started seeing things getting lighter and I’m like, ‘You know what? Let me do it earlier than later.’ I’m tryna tell y’all — don’t be jealous!”
In his caption, he added: “A BIG heartfelt thank you to @dr_haroldsiegel and his team over at @naturaltransplantsclinic for taking care of me and giving me that extra care and attention with my new hair. Taking care of your hair early AND with the right doctor is key @naturaltransplantsclinic is where it’s at.”
Timbaland will be looking his best with his new hairline as he welcomes Verzuz back to the culture — something he recently promised would happen by the end of 2023.
In an interview with AllHipHop on Sunday (September 10), the producer promised to give the people what they want — and a lot sooner than they may think.
“Verzuz is still a baby,” he said. “It was something that was built in the pandemic that’s now a household name. Look how you saying it. Now we back open. To make it have the longevity that we need it to have, we have to reorganize the ship.”
He continued: “I believe that we’re gonna drop some good ones before the end of the year. We’re trying to get at least one good one before the end of the year to recalibrate what Verzuz is going to be in the future.”
Back in February, co-founder Swizz Beatz teased an epic return for Season 3 that will apparently be well worth the wait.
The Ruff Ryders producer explained that the infrastructure of the Verzuz platform would be evolving for 2023 and there’s a “fantastic lineup” in store for upcoming battles.
“We’ve been changing the infrastructure because when we started, it happened in the garage and then moved to a significant platform,” Swizz relayed to REVOLT. “Now, we changed the whole way we’re moving but not entirely, so people won’t feel like it’s not the same.
“We have a fantastic lineup with people they wanted to see and even battles they think wouldn’t happen. Announcements will be coming soon.”
Swizz also spoke to HipHopDX to promote The Godfather Of Harlem and touched on Verzuz returning with more producer battles as well.
“Yeah, I mean, that’s how we started it. You know, me and Tim going head-to-head and DJ Premier and RZA. You know what I’m saying? We did a bunch of those,” he said. “I mean, we definitely need to get back to a lot of different things that people won’t expect. It’s going to end up to be really crazy.”
