Timbaland started humbly with small-time R&B production work, but the rapper grown into the biggest producer of any genre of music at the moment.

He started early on producing for artists like Ginuwine, Missy Elliott and the late Aaliyah before taking up the microphone with his friend Magoo. Timbaland and Magoo were only moderately successful, but Timbaland became huge through his production work.

By the 2000s, he was one of hip-hop’s premier beatmakers, working with everyone from Jay-Z and Ludacris to Snoop Dogg and LLCoolJ. But little by little, he began dabbling into work in the pop world.

He is responsible for the majority of the music for two of the biggest album pop albums of 2006, Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds and Nelly Furtado’s Loose. Every song available on Timberlake’s MySpace page and Furtado’s MySpace page page are produced by Timbaland.

As for the future, Timbaland is said to be working with Bjork and Duran Duran on their new albums.
