    he aint no protoge and all those tracks that timbo supposedly did that hit #1 he co produce timbo just dont put his name on tha credit.

    hes aight good pop producer

  • T.R.E.Y.

    well the article coulda mentioned the fact that he’s co-produced all those hits with Timbo. as far as any “ghost-production” goes i think if you listen to this guy’s solo tracks you’ll notice the difference.

  • Tyler

    Been tryin’ 2 tell ya’ll Tim has been rippin’ people since he got in the game. . He fuck’d over his old manager after his manager Robert Reives got his outta’ ‘dat shit hole wit’ Devante and put his fat ass on. Tim then fuck’d the dude outta of the credits on the Ginuwine album which U can peep ‘dat 1st album inside yourself. R.Reives did all ‘dat Jodeci stuff from Diary of a Mad Band up 2 The Show The AfterParty The Hotel which Tim tells everyone ‘dat he spun hit like Feenin’ and Cry 4 U. .then way hasn’t Tim every done a song ‘dat sounds like ‘dat since then? Jodeci ain’t done an album since R.Reives left them. . I wonder why?
    Lose Yo Mind at:

  • Malone

    Tim gave him credit for all those hits. He is credited as a co producer on all the songs listed. Co producing is common practice. Dre does it all the time.

  • Meta4ever Musik

    First of all, he’s Timbaland’s Protege’. Learn what the word stands for before you start making all of these stupid comments. Timbaland gave that man the biggest oppotunity of his life and he ran with it, which is what you’re supposed to do! Timbaland didn’t need those 6 #1 hits. He has had so many throughout his career, he decided to let the light shine on someone new. Tim doesn’t have to still beats from anyone. You cats should do your research before you make comments. If any body got a problem with that, they can see me on the mic anytime, anyplace! Holla! Meta4ever Musik 2007
