Talk about biting the hand that fed you, back in the day Missy Elliot, Timbaland, and Ginuwine had a lot of history and created great music together. Ginuwine had hoped to do a video to his latest track “Get Involved” featuring Missy Elliot and Timbaland however it is reported Timbaland was ducking him. Timbaland dodged most of his calls and even used the excuse that he was getting “too fat” as a reason to back out of the video which left Ginuwine hurt about the situation. The word is that Timbaland has been vocal about trying to distance himself from the urban arena and move on to the pop arena, which is strange because he produced two tracks off of Jay-Z’s album and some songs for Keri Hilson. In my honest opinion Pop is where the money is at but what about loyalty in the game? Mostly loyalty to the streets? When they were buying albums you were all hip hop and R&B. By the way where is Magoo( if you don’t know who that is look it up youngin`s)?
With Hood Billionaire out and fellow MMG member Wale next up (The Album About Nothing drops March 31st; peep "MMG Under God" here) Rozay links up with Jay Z for the "Movin' Bass" visuals. Timbaland laced the track, Jigga laid down a verse, and now we're getting the official video some months later. Interestingly enough Jay ain't even blessing the video, as we find Rozay all alone around a NYC project housing community. Either way, Rick Ross does his thing. Check it out after the jump.
Petey Pablo, the North Carolina rapper best known for early 2000s hits like "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek" is back. Petey has spent the last 35 months in prison following an alleged attempt to carry a stolen 9mm semi-automatic pistol aboard a US Airways flight bound for Los Angeles. And now that he's back he teams up with Timbaland for "Never Imagined" a song in which Petey Pablo tries to steer children away from trouble. Listen to the new Petey Pablo joint "Never Imagined" after the jump.
Rick Ross' forthcoming studio album Hood Billionaire is due out November 24th and today he shares his Timbaland produced, Jay Z featured track "Movin' Bass". The track finds Ross delivering some fiery street verses and Jay handling the hook (yep, the hook) and it's a pretty dope cut despite no actual verse from Hova. Listen after the jump.
