Grammy-winning producer Timbaland is keeping busy these days as reports claim he is hard at work on a comeback album for iconic 90's music group, Jodeci.
According to reports, Timbo has announced his work on the crew's first release in nearly 20 years.
During a chat with fans on the Hang w/ app (via HHNM), he revealed the news. "I met with DeVante and I'ma help work on the new Jodeci album," said Timbo. "I ain't really supposed to say that, but I'll be working with the new Jodeci album," he said, adding, "And it does sound good." Jodeci is reportedly in the studio readying their first album in 19 years. The "Holy Grail" hitmaker previously collaborated with the '90s R&B group on their 1993 album Diary of a Mad Band. (Rap-Up)
Timbo raised eyebrows after dishing out a new track in Paris last fall.
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. It can be heard after the jump. (HHNM)

Tim also made headlines after revealing he would join Jay Z's overseas tour last year.
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)
