Timbaland opens up about Jay-Z and Drake helping him through his "darkest moments."
During a recent interview with Shannon Sharpe on his Club Shay Shay podcast Timb says,“JAY-Z is a prophet,” he expressed. “God sent him. I ain’t never seen nobody like him. Hov actually raised me, and he don’t even know it. He raised me in the music business. He was so prolific, so wise beyond his age, that I was just amazed at just watching him. That’s why I had a different bond with Jay when it comes to my music. We was rewriting the Bible, in a way.”
When it comes to Drake, Timb says, “e Drake told me. That’s why I’m like, these guys are special to the world. Now, once they give you the information, it’s up to you to use it. I didn’t come out until the darkness, man, and that’s why I say, it’s all love with these guys. They helped me during my darkest moment.”
