Timbaland Says He’s Done With Hip Hop

Posted By on December 15, 2009

    Timbaland is very clear about his intentions. "If this album does as semi-well as the last one, I'm done," Timbaland says. "I'm not going through the stress no more. I will do it for my fans and give it away for free." Timbaland says he is tired of politics in the music biz and he's losing his desire to sell albums although Timbo's new "Shock Value II" album just came out, which features Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.

    "After my last album, I know where my bread and butter is at," Tim explained. "I know 75 percent [of the people who buy my album] are women who love Timbaland and most are the women who watch 'Desperate Housewives' and all those others. I did this research. It's the women who watch 'Sex and the City,' 'Desperate Housewives' — all the real go-to-the-bar women like Timbaland, and mostly European women. It lets me know that my fanbase is mostly women and they are from all cultures. So it's not a person who loves mostly hip-hop. It's a person who loves everything besides hip-hop."

    Timbaland finished by adding… "I was done with hip-hop a long time ago," he said. "Once my generation left, I left. I do it, but there's nobody from my generation besides Jay who's doing it. I look at Lil Wayne as being from my generation. Some people are still acceptable. Kanye is acceptable from my generation." [Timbaland Explains His Audience – Watch Here
