Timbaland Joins Roc Nation

Timbaland

Timbaland is down with the Roc. The super-producer has signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation for management.

The announcement was made on Jay-Z’s Life + Times website. “Roc Nation welcomes TIMBALAND to the family,” read the message.

Roc Nation represents some of the biggest stars in music including Rihanna, J. Cole, M.I.A., and Shakira.

Timbaland, who is still signed as an artist to Interscope Records, is currently in the studio working on Justin Timberlake’s comeback album The 20/20 Experience as well as Keri Hilson’s third album.

He recently partnered with 50 Cent on his SMS Audio headphones line. As part of the deal, Timbaland will serve as an investment partner and member of the company’s board of directors.

    Timbo and Jay-Z making moves makes sense they have history and Jay will treat him better than Blackground

    @Unk, Hopefully JoJo will be able to do the same and get out of contract with Blackground; so, she will be able to release new music.

    @batman, Yes, I completely agree with you. She would be running that Label. That voice.. undeniably pure talent.

    That’s a good move on Timbaland’s part. I miss the days when Timbaland was at the top of his game (i.e 2006 with JT, Nelly Furtado and his “Shock Value” album). I hope he gets his groove back with Justin’s new album.

    DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!! OF ALL THE ARTISTS WHO SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN LABEL ITS TIMBALAND….

    @Jay Scorpio, Timbo has his own label… Mosley Music Group, which has OneRepublic and Keri Hilson signed.

    But Timbo, like many other artists with their own label, is also signed to another label, might have management in a third and be distrubuted through a fourth…

    two things,
    im surprised timbaland doesnt have is own management company, regardless this is an incredible power move.
    &
    I wonder if this means missy will be making a move as well, having roc behind her would be a huge move

    Tim Far from broke, he is signing as in artist he was on blackground records and you know how bad they are with their artists they blocked so many songs from coming out of the Timbo vault and to the masses

    @Unk, Tim is probably still with Blackground. This is a management deal.

    Clearly some of you people CAN’T read. He signed to Roc Nation for MANAGEMENT, not as a part of a record label.
