Timbaland, whose real name Timothy Mosley Zakar, was born on 10
March 1971 in Norfolk, Virginia (United States). He made his debut
in the music as a disc jockey. The musical universe is all his
life and he slowly weaves his web on the world of American rap.
His meeting with the rapper Barcliff Melvin, best known as Magoo,
will give birth to the album "Welcome To Our World"
which Timbaland will put in orbit. In 1998, he released his first
solo album: "Tim's Bio: Life From Da Bassment" which
will give him the recognition of the environment and especially
the public. This success will allow Timbaland to immerse themselves
in the shadow of the studios to produce a large number of artists:
Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott and many more.
If it's frequent appearances on the albums of artists he produced,
Timbaland remains a rare solo artiste.
for his fans, he released in 2001 and 2003, two albums with Magoo.
But it is especially his last solo album "Shock Value"
which was a real event in the world hip-hop. A unique sound, a
more than perfect, incursions towards a more rock music and renowned
guests as Elton John, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake are
the recipes for success. In little more than a decade, Timbaland
has become a producer of rap since produced today by artists such
as Madonna or Stevie Wonder, a great reward for this love of music.
In 2009, for his third album "Shock Value: Volume 2"
Timbaland meets a new cast of beautiful stars: Akon, Beyoncé,
Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Linkin Park and some other ... still
a good time to pass.
