All the Timstans need to make sure they tune in to E! tonight to watch "Timbaland: the E! True Hollywood Story." Timbaland will speak on his youth and upbringing, how he got involved in music, his first big break, his depression and suicidal thoughts, his status as a superproducer, and where he sees his music going in the future. Timbo also reveals one secret that most of us never knew: He was in love with Aaliyah. Here's what he said about it:
"When I first met Aaliyah—it time for the world to hear this, I'm gonna give a little secret—I was in love with her. I said, But I'm not…She just a baby, I'm old. I said to myself, 'I'm just gonna be her brother.' Oh man, I was fightin', I was fightin' a lot—a big war. But I loved Aaliyah."
Be sure to check out the special tonight, and we'll be sure to upload the full video when it becomes available.
For those who don't know Larry Live has been posting unreleased Timbo tracks from the early '90s, mostly from his DJ Timmy Tim/Surrounded by Idiots days. He's been dropping one song each days a part of the "12 Days of Timbaland/Christmas." Here are six of the records released so far:
"Oh, Catherin" (Circa 1990/91)
"Ginger Bread Man"
"Fess Up" (Circa 1990/91)
This track features Larry Live, Magoo, and GY, who was an original member of SBI. Timstans will know that Tim reused this beat for Sista's "Good Thang."
"K Quick Beat"
From Larry Live: "Since this beat was made for a rapper that Tim was making beats for around the way by the MC name "K Quick" we're gonna title it "the k quick beat" that's the least i can do since the guy name us Surrounded By Idiots! Also K Quick use to be in a rap group with Malice of the Clipse back in the day way b4 Pusha started rapping and yes Tim use to make beats for Malice as well!"
"Take A Bath Beat"
From Larry Live: "So when Tim did this beat i remember us just sitting in his room laughing at what the sample was saying, we still don't know for sure but we always said that the sample was saying 'Take A Bath' so that's the name of this! ---Larry Live Of Live House Entertainment & SBI's! Tim & Missy always refer to Tim's lil keyboard he had back in the day, lol, this beat was made on it!"
"Where Could U Be Going"
Stay tuned for the rest of the tracks! Pretty dope stuff, right?!?!
As most of you heard last week, the final version of Madonna's track "Latte" leaked on the net. Regardless if the song's actual title is "La La" or "Pala Tute," the track is produced by Timbaland and features Justin Timberlake. Check it out:
Western Union just linked a deal with Snoop Dogg, K’naan, Sunidhi Chauhan, and Timbo to revolutionize the world of singing telegrams.

Peep this track by brand new recording artist, Carishma, called "Keep Hangin' On" that features and is produced by Timbo himself:
She's Indian-American (Indian as in from India) and recent graduate of NYU. She apparently auditioned for Timbaland in Miami and this was the track that they recorded. No word on whether there are more tracks in the vault or if she's going to sign with MMG, but we'll let you know when we hear. You can download the track for free on her website. Y'all feeling the song?
Props to Timbaland Passion for the heads up!
After what feels like a lifetime of waiting (and listening to an almost inaudible 46 second snippet), we finally have a clear clip of Ricky Martin's song "I Just Wanna Feel Real Love" aka "Bare my Soul." Peep:
Hopefully the full version will leak soon. Thoughts on the song?
