Timbaland Signs with Jay-Z
Timbaland has signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label. The rapper and producer - who has worked on tracks for Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland and a host of other stars - has signed with Jay's label, which is also home to Rita Ora and Alexis Jordan.
Jay posted a picture of them together on his Life + Times blog, with a caption reading, "We would like to welcome Timbaland to the Roc Nation family!"
Timbaland, whose real name is Timothy Mosley, also tweeted about the move, writing, "Just want to thank everybody who is congratulating me on my new business venture. I appreciate it. #bigmoves #newbeginnings #rocnation (sic)."
Timbaland has also previously produced tracks for Jay - who founded Roc Nation in 2008 - including hits "Big Pimpin," "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" and "N***a What, N***a Who." His most recent collaboration saw him team up with Justin Timberlake on his new single, "Suit & Tie" and he is also expected to release a new solo album this year.
