Tim's Bio [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - John Bush
Timbaland, the producer most responsible for the sound of hip-hop circa the late '90s, finally released his proper solo debut after a 1997 LP recorded as Timbaland & Magoo in late 1998. It's not quite the personal statement implied in the title, but it is full of excellent productions. He spoofs the hip-hop fad of sampling '80s pop by rewiring familiar themes, like those of Spiderman and I Dream of Jeanie, into barely recognizable forms.

Though his trademark style of stuttered beats and obtuse samples is probably best witnessed on singles by Missy Elliott and Aaliyah, Tim's Bio is a solid introduction to the talents of hip-hop's best young producer of the late '90s.

    Not Such a Hot Bio For Mr. Mosely

    I guess Timbaland was right when he said he didn't care about how ppl say about his lyrical flow is weak. He is a much better producer than rapper. This album is definitely held up about water by several tracks (namely Lobster and Scrimp featuring Jay-Z) But for the most part it does not compare w/ Welcome to our World. Magoo's absence was sorely missed. Overall though a good production effort.
