Best of Timbaland Pt. 1

The Producer Series has been so much fun to work on, and our newest entry is nothing short of magical! In hindsight, Timbaland is universally accepted as the gold standard of hip-hop and R&B production, but when he first came out of Virginia Beach in the 1990s, it was like an alien had landed on Earth, bearing otherworldly technology. The double-time drum patterns, the beatboxing, the sample flips, the synthesizers: he was truly speaking a different language. In Part 1, we’ve featured many of his early hits with Missy, Aaliyah, Jay-Z, Nas and Ginuwine, with a sprinkling of forgotten gems from Tweet, Ms Jade, Nelly Furtado and Pastor Troy.

Be on the look out for Part 2, coming at the end of September!

Missy Elliott – Beep Me 911 (ft. 702 & Magoo)
SWV – Can We Get Kinky Tonight (ft. Missy Elliott)
Missy Elliott – Sock It 2 Me
Timbaland & Magoo – Luv 2 Luv U
Aaliyah – Try Again (ft. Timbaland)
Nas – You Won’t See Me Tonight (ft Aaliyah)
Pastor Troy – Are We Cuttin (ft. N.O.R.E. & Ms Jade)
Petey Pablo – Raise Up (All Cities Mix)
Jay-Z – Snoopy Track (ft. Juvenile)
Jay-Z – It’s Hot
Missy Elliott – The Rain
Tweet – Call Me
Ms Jade – Ching Ching (ft. Timbaland & Nelly Furtado)

FINALLY we celebrate the producer of some of our favorite rap records of the past 25 years, Alan the Chemist! The breadth of this man’s career is remarkable: he started out in The Whooliganz in the early 90s, made big waves in underground hip-hop with beats for Dilated Peoples, became Mobb Deep’s in-house producer, and went on to craft hits for Jadakiss, Eminem, Nas, Cam’ron and a whole lot more. Unlike most of his peers, in 2021 he still releases at a breakneck pace, with Griselda, Action Bronson, Curren$y, Earl Sweatshirt, and the list goes on. And he raps! It was almost impossible to boil this all down into a 40 minute mix but we did it.

During lockdown, we’ve been huge nostalgia junkies, revisiting all the great records we’ve collected over the years. Rub Radio fans have gotten a taste of our comfort food, as we’ve mixed the catalogs of J. Dilla, Trackmasters and Prince Paul in recent months in our History of Hip Hop: Producers Series. Madlib is one of our favorites, a beatmaker but also a prolific artist and even a jazz musician who has recorded under a dozen aliases. This mix just scratches the surface of his work with MF Doom, J. Dilla, Lootpack, Freddie Gibbs, Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu and a whole lot more, laced throughout with original sample sources.

Let us know which producers we should highlight next, at @itstherub on Twitter and Instagram!
