Grammy-winning producer Timbaland recently spoke on Jay-Z‘s new Magna Carta Holy Grail solo album and crowned it Jigga’s best work to date.
Despite having worked on various Jay albums, Timbo said Magna Carta tops his collection.
“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)
Last month, Tim hyped up Young Hov’s Samsung Magna Carta Holy Grail promotion.
“ha i told yall we was just gettin started when the jt album drop hah,” Tim tweeted June 17th. (Timbaland’s Twitter)
Recently, Maybach Music Group head Rick Ross only helping to strengthen ties between hip-hop and mega corporations like Samsung with his new partnership.
“It’s one of those situations where Hov is creating new rules for the hip-hop game, for the rap game.” Ross said in an interview. “I mean, it’s exciting. I released a photo of Chelsea Clinton when I went to a Samsung event and you see corporations like Samsung reaching back into hip-hop, I think it’s a sign to let us know for the next 20 years we gonna make power moves, we gonna get money.” (Civil TV)
Recently, Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy revealed he had a chance to talk to Young Hov about their respective power moves and what the Samsung deal could mean for the future.
“While I was out here I called Jay and me and him been talking back and forth about the network and about his deal and how proud we were of each other. We’re actually changing together the business model of the music industry. As far as our power, you can see the power that we have, not me and Jay-Z, the power that we have as a culture that Samsung now is going to give Apple a run for its money. People actually believe and we believe in our leaders in hip-hop. What they say is cool and what they say is next and we recognized that what Samsung is doing is moving forward. We were like “Hey man, we may need to give this Galaxy joint a chance” and that’s a lot of power, man.” (VIBE)
