Timbaland Signs with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Label
Two music powerhouses have collided!
It was announced today, on Jay-Z’s website, Life & Times, that Timbaland will be joining the Roc Nation Label. Along with the announcement, “Roc Nation welcomes Timbaland to the family,” was this photo of the two chatting it up in the studio:
Timbaland has been a prominent figure in the music world for more than a decade. According to his bio, he started producing music in high school when he started working with a young Pharell Williams and a young Missy Elliot. Within the past 10 years he’s created a generous number of chart toppers, both as a producer and as a solo artist.
Timbaland is signed to Interscope Records as an artist, and has signed to Roc Nation for management. He joins Shakira, Wale, Rihanna, and many more, under the label which is a collaboration between Jay-Z and Live Nation, one of the largest live show ticket distributors in the world.
It looks like Timbaland’s reign is far from over! It’ll be interesting to see the magic these two hit makers can come up with together.
