Timbo Returns to Spotlight on Grab the Wheel


There aren't many producers that can hang their hat on a distinct style that any self-respecting fan of music would recognize. Timbaland is an exception to that as his combination of deep bass snare kicks are as trademark as it gets. Like on his new one with Atlanta rapper 6lack, Grab the Wheel. Those stop-and-go kicks with steady tapping percussion is something I've been missing dearly in my life as Timbo's productions have slowed over the years. Better yet, if you fast forward to the 2:40 mark, he pulled a Justin Timberlake a la LoveStoned/I Think She Knows style beat switch as the track glides to an end. They may be small touches, but it underscores the creativity that's generally lacking in Hip Hop production these days.

One thing we can all be grateful of is that Timbland kicked his painkiller addiction and he's back to making new music. Cheers to that and don't be bashful in copping the new one on iTunes or Spotify if you're as Timbo-starved as I am...#GrabTheWheel
