Timbaland Eyeing Chart Battle Against Dr. Dre


Timbaland


Timbaland is making plans to release an album next year, on the same day Dr. Dre will release his.

Thanks to 50 Cent and Kanye West for setting a trend of chart battle, Timbaland is now planning to do the same against "daddy" Dr. Dre. The uber producer may want to challenge Dre, an equally renown producer, by releasing a new album on the same date early next year.

Telling MTV Timbaland said, "I gotta go against my daddy. I call Dre my daddy. To make it be some talk, I gotta go against my big brother. He's my big brother. Dre is my mentor. That would be big."

Dr. Dre has prepared his third studio album 'Detox' for years and planned to release it in 2004 but decided to postpone it to 2008 due to dissatisfaction. The producer wanted this album to be his best because it may be his final piece.

Apparently the idea also struck another Hip-Hop icon, Jay-Z. Tim asked his friend who he would like to go against with, and Jay-Z answered Eminem. Tim said, "I asked Jay-Z who he would go against. 'The only person I would go against is my other homeboy: my friend Eminem.'"

Meanwhile, Timbaland has confirmed that he is not working on Missy Elliott's entire album, 'The Countdown'. So far only six tracks has been taken under his hand because of other responsibilities.

"I can't make Atlantic (Records) money," Tim said. "Nothing personal. We had a time and a crazy run, but I gotta get my own indie label poppin'. Missy is my sister, but I got a family: Nelly (Furtado), Keri (Hilson), One Republic. If I don't function, then they don't function and they can't get their careers off."
