Grammy-winning producer Timbaland continues to tease diehard hip-hop fans with a sneak peek at an untitled Jay Z and Drake track on the current Magna Carter Holy Grail tour.
The latest spotting of Timbo dishing out the track in Paris surfaced online this weekend.
Timbaland is currently overseas with Hov for the European leg of the Magna Carta World Tour. While they were stopped in Birmingham, U.K., Tim gave the fans a nice treat in the form of a new Jay Z and Drake collaboration. There's no information on where this track will end up or what it's for, but from the clip above we can tell it's nice. We can hear Drake rap, "I just got back home, 40 days on vacation. Know we killing the game, shit is all for the taking........I'm a star in the making." Maybe this is for Tim's upcoming album? Either way, we're looking forward to hearing the full CDQ sooner than later. Via WordOnRoad. UPDATE: Timbaland gives another preview of this track while out in Paris for the Magna Carta World Tour.

Earlier this month, Timbo treated fans to a first listen to the record.

Jay and Drake previously worked together on songs like, "Off That" and "Light Up." (Enstarz)
Tim recently made headlines after revealing he would join Jay Z's overseas tour.
Timbaland has announced that he will be joining Jay Z on tour in the UK next month. The rapper and producer will be a guest on the Magna Carter World Tour when it comes to Europe. The pair have become friends again after falling out at the end of The Blueprint 3 album. "A couple of songs were getting leaked that were his songs and that whole thing just ruined the process," said Jay Z. "Everyone has to put egos aside for the sake of the project and he wasn't accepting of that and that was almost like the last straw. "When he came back, I saw a new Timbaland. He has this maturity and this growth and I was like, 'Oh OK, this is going to work out'," he added. (BBC UK)
Despite having worked on various Jay albums, Timbo said Magna Carta topped his collection over the summer.
"This is the best Jay-Z album thus far... I told [Jay-Z], all The Blueprint albums, those were good, but this is your first big album for the new millennium," Tim said in a video. "This is hip-hop at its finest -- it's gonna change hip-hop. Y'all gonna get in your car and be like, 'This is a good a** album.'" (Revolt TV)
