When Timbaland emerged as a super-producer in the mid-90’s, countless major artists called on the Virgina-native for beats. One of his clients, by the name of Jay-Z, used his board work to create hip-hop anthems such as Jigga What Jigga Who, Big Pimpin’, Is That Your Chick, and Dirt Off Your Shoulder. For fans who were disappointed with the lack of Timbo production on Hova’s post-retirement albums, Kingdom Come and American Gangster, the Booth is proud to present their most recent collaboration, Ain’t I. Contrary to rumors all over the internet, this is NOT
expected to be featured on S-Dot’s Blueprint 3 album (if any such set will ever be released); rather, Ain’t I was intended for inclusion on Timbaland’s Shock Value, but was not completed in time.
