The key to success in life, is the maturations that you endure and how you produce through them.

The first time we heard the sounds of Timbaland was when we heard the colaborations of Hip Hop’s up and coming at the time, Missy Elliott and the Princess of R&B Aaliyah, with the dance track “Up Jumps Da Boogie” back in 1997.   From there King Timbo’s career has been off and literally poppin.

Timbaland quietly has won numerous awards and has produced for numerous artists, most notably, the late R&B singer Aaliyah, who died in August of 2001.

As of late he is the music producer for the hit television show on FOX “Empire” where he gets to work with up and coming artists on the show such as the incomparable Veronica Bozeman.  He currently has a book published,  “The Emperor Of Sound” and now a new Album, “King Stays King”, coming out.  Staying true to who he his musical and returning to his grass roots, he has now released his first single  from the album, “Shakin” featuring the angelic voice of Aaliyah.  The song will definitely make you reflect on the greatness that has been lost, but moving forward, it lets you feel that a King will definitely always stay a King.

To quote from his book “The Emperor Of Sound” and the legendary Bob Marley – {“Some people feel the rain.  Others just get wet.” I would paraphrase that to say, “Some people just hear noise, but for me the world is a catalog of sound.”}
