Timbaland Preps Video Game for Aspiring Producers

While it may seem as if super producer Timbaland has been missing on the hip-hop front as of late, the Virginia-native is making a comeback…digitally, that is.

The hitmaker, known for crafting chart-songs for Jay-Z, Missy Elliott and Ludacris, has partnered with the masterminds behind the highly-successful Grand Theft Auto series to develop a video game, titled Beaterator. The game will allow players to utilize Timbo’s signature sounds to create their own beats.

“I’ve worked closely with Rockstar Games to make something completely unique,” Tim said via a press release. “Beaterator is like taking my music studio and turning it into a suite of tools anyone can use. We can’t wait to hear the beats people make and share with the world.”

Beaterator is a very natural progression for us,” Sam Houser, the founder of Rockstar Games, added. “Music is incredibly important to us here at Rockstar, and we believe that there are many people out there who share that passion and will be excited about creating music of their own.”

Beaterator will be released on September 29. –Max G
