Dr. Dre Pays Tribute To Timbaland: ‘One Of My Main Inspirations’

Dr. Dre admits that Timbaland has always been one of his main inspirations.

On Tuesday (Feb. 27), Dre paid tribute to his fellow producer at the Iovine and Young Center for High School Education Benefit Auction. “This guy is so fantastic, man. One of my inspirations. He doesn’t know it but he’s been one of my main inspirations throughout my career,” he said while standing beside Timbaland.

The Compton native continued, “Can you believe the amount of songs this muthaf**ka has recorded? I was just back here talking to James Corden and he was like, ‘Listen, I didn’t know he produced that.’ I really appreciate you coming out and handling this business for us. Thank you, Timbaland. One of the best ever. Point blank. Period.”

Timbaland then posted the clip on his Instagram page. “Man this moment rite here is everything to me !!!! If anybody know me @drdre is my hero !!!!!! What a night!!!” the “Give It to Me” hitmaker captioned the video. Check out the post below.
