Timbaland Talks Missy Elliott, Drake, & Aaliyah on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Charlamagne, Timbaland, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy

Timbaland kept it real when he stopped by Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” The super-producer reminisced on the past and looked to the future, speaking about the return of Missy Elliott, his upcoming album Shock Value III (which he personally calls Ezekiel’s Wheel), a Drake and Aaliyah collaboration, and where Aaliyah would be if she was alive today.

On the features on Shock Value III, which has been delayed from June: “I got Wayne, Ross, I wanna do one with Kanye, mostly the rappers I got this time.”

On a Missy Elliott/Nicki Minaj collaboration: “Missy would want that. I wanna do that with this record. I know Nicki like Missy. I think it should be for [Missy's album] more than mine. I think it would make more of a statement to be with hers. I think if it was a record for mine, I would give it to her.”

On who he sees having longevity: Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj. “She has a brain. I look at her as a woman now,” he said of Nicki. He also co-signed A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.

On Drake: “I look at Drake and he seems like he angry, some internal problems. That’s my dude, but sometimes I be like, you alright?”

On recording a collaboration with Drake and Aaliyah: “I know they tryna drop some Aaliyah records. I got something that I never put out. I’m trying to get one done now just for the fans, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him and Missy. The best decision what the fans would want to see is all three of us. It can’t be something to make money off of ’cause I think it’s wrong to make money off the dead.”

On where Aaliyah’s career would be now: “I think she would have been Beyoncé status ’cause she was the first one who was doing all those things.”

On his weight gain: “I went back to being fat, just say it. I’m fat, fat boy. Fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat! My momma big, I got fat-tabloids or whatever—fat genes.”

    @Dubois, Missy would work Nicki. Missy is a supporter of Female Rap. Plus, she is not a hater.

    @hot sauce, Honestly I don’t think Missy would want to do a song with Nicki Minaj. Missy Elliot, Aaliyah and Lil’ Kim are like sisters. I feel like Missy would ask Lil’ Kim first and Kim would be ok with it.. but apart from that there is no way Missy would do a track with Nicki without Kim’s consent.

    ITS SUCH A SHAME THOUGH!! I want to see Missy, Lil’ Kim, Nicki and Eve all on a track.

    @hot sauce,

    What does working with Nicki have to do with being loyal to Kim?
    NOTHING. Missy has said it time and time again if Nicki wants to collabo she is down. End of story.
    Love Kim but Missy doesnt do beef.. the same way she would collabo with Kim is the same way she would collab with Nicki. Get over it!

    I like that he said that ANY new song or collabo with Aaliyah should be done for charity.. it’s not right to make money off the dead. I love that.

    So true…

    On recording a collaboration with Drake and Aaliyah: “I know they tryna drop some Aaliyah records. I got something that I never put out. I’m trying to get one done now just for the fans, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him and Missy. The best decision what the fans would want to see is all three of us.

    Timbaland is a real dude. I do feel that when Dj Envy asked about Damon Dash and Jay-Z split over Aaliyah that was the truth but Tim couldnt handle it since its a deep subject but i definately know that there are things that happened behind the scenes that people dont know. Theres things that go on in the music industry like blood sacrifices and things that most ppl dont believe but i have knowledge on the evil entertainment business that has been going on now for years. Aaliyahs death was not a mistake

    I personally can’t see nicki making music with missy bc she has yet made an effort to make music with any of the other female rappers in the game ( past, current, future)n she said she worked with all the ppl she wanted to work with anyways.

    N any1 wanting to remake an Aaliyah song or duet with new material should go by Missy n timb bc they help create that sound, were by her side n just insync with her musically n need their approval.
