One of my hometown heroes is celebrating his 41st birthday today! Hailing from Norfolk, Virginia (VA!), Timbaland is a super-producer who has crafted the careers of some of my favorite artists including Missy Elliot and the late Aaliyah! Timbaland has also had much success on his own solo career, being behind such tracks like The Way I Are (featuring Keri Hilson) and Give It To Me (featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake). While he is working on his forth studio album, Textbook Timbo, expected to be released sometime this year, Timbaland should be celebrated for his large impact on changing the sound of modern-day music! Happy Birthday Timbaland!
