blame it on Meka January 2, 2018

What more can be said about Timbaland that hasn’t been written or spoken at this point? A legend of the highest degree, Timothy Zachery “Tim” Mosley is one of the most influential producers of all time, with a catalogue that includes cuts from both unquestioned icons and today’s rising artists.

Following Terrence “Punch” Henderson, Tim sat down with the new EVP of Brand Strategy and Content for Def Jam Noah Callahan-Bever for the season finale of Complex’ “Blueprint” series. During the 25-minute interview, Timbaland speaks on producing pioneering tracks Missy Elliott, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, but nearly lost it all when addiction nearly consumed and ended his life. Now sober, Tim is busy writing the next chapters in his storied life and career.
