We almost lost one of the most powerful duos in hip hop FOREVER!
Thankfully, Jay-Z and Timbaland put their differences aside to deliver eargasms on Magna Carta Holy Grail, but what caused their major falling out on Jay's 2009 The Blueprint III???!
Some BIG egos.
"The fallout happened at the end of that album. A couple of songs were getting leaked, and it just ruined that whole process. Kanye [West] was like 'let's get Tim in' [for Magna Carta Holy Grail], we were all inviting him and he just wasn't accepting to the process. It seemed like it was more about him than the actual album. When you make an album you have to put all egos aside for the sake of the project. That was almost like a last-straw type of thing and we went our separate ways."
Phew! Thank goodness we dodged what could've had a heart shattering loss to the industry.
Who would've guessed
peacemaker Kanye West, of all people, would be the one to reunite them??? LOLz!
Timbaland might have a bit too much pride, but he DOES produce music magic! Not to mention, playa did produce 11 out of the 16 tracks that make up Jay's EPIC new album.
Now keep playing nice, boys!
