Hip-Hop, Rhythm-and-Blues Producer and Performer

Timbaland, an American record producer, songwriter, rapper, singer, and record executive, has significantly influenced the music industry since his debut in 1994. Notable for his innovative production work and distinct rhythmic style, Timbaland has collaborated with a broad spectrum of artists, including Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, and Jay-Z, to name a few. His production repertoire boasts hit singles like "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake and "Give It To Me" featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. Beyond his individual work, Timbaland has contributed to the hip hop duo Timbaland & Magoo, releasing three albums and one solo album.

Timbaland's entrepreneurial spirit led him to establish record labels Beat Club in 2001 and Mosley Music Group in 2006. His exceptional work in the music industry has earned him four Grammy Awards from 21 nominations. In 2020, Timbaland co-created the popular webcast series Verzuz with Swizz Beatz, further expanding his influence beyond the music industry. Despite personal adversities, such as accidentally being shot at the age of 14 and being paralyzed for nine months, Timbaland persevered and continued to produce music that blurred the lines between hip-hop and R&B production.

In addition to his musical talents, Timbaland has ventured into other creative fields, including designing a T-shirt print for the Fashion Against AIDS collection and working with Rockstar Games to produce Beaterator, a music mixing game. His collaborations with artists like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, and Björk have further established his reputation as an influential figure in the music industry. He continues to release new music, such as the singles "Keep Going Up" in collaboration with Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, and "My Way" with singer Anna Margo. Despite controversies around allegations of plagiarism, Timbaland's influence is undeniable, as he is credited with establishing Virginia as an East Coast stronghold in Hip Hop.
