I don't think its actually timbaland, he gives a shoutout to "Tim and Bob" as his producers - I could be wrong though, "Tim" could be Timbaland. It definitely bears the mark of his influence.

my current faves are
one thing, still
that re-edit of mighty by tye tribbet that's currently floating around
and mr johnnie walker by tiombe lockheart, which is produced by bilal
Don't forget R Kelly's Sex in the Kitchen!
The Amerie track hooked me when I first got it but I change the station when it comes on lately.
In rewinds, I'm all about Aaliyah's "Miss You" lately for a variety of reasons.
Has Bilal been up to anything much recently in terms of his own stuff? Heard his track 'Bring 2' on The Wash soundtrack and it was awesome... so checked out that album (Second First Born or whatever) and was pretty underwhelmed. Likewise most of the guests I've heard... Tweet, Kweli, etc. although his track with Common is nice.

Sex in the Kitchen is so great!
the award for best new r&b sng from the stratford area goes to kele le roc's new one, something about getting you naked
i could definitely see myself getting annoyed by the amerie if i had a tv or drove to work.
which track on the DC did 9th wonder produce?
that raphael saadiq album that squeaked out unnoticed last year is actually pretty hot in places.
Bizarre - I wasn't that keen on any of the other stuff listed on that resume, but the bobby valentino track seems like a major step forward. Like David said, major Timbaland influence going on. Haven't decided on Sex In The Kitchen yet - I figure it's basically great and I realise the lyrics are an easy target but they really are laughable.

Noticed he's been taken under the Roc 4 Life umbrella so i guess more'll be heard from him soon
I think 9th Wonder did a couple of tracks on the DC album; Girls and ... another. Quite a nice remix of Girls going round with Sean Price on it that's claiming to be a 9th wonder job, although the drums sound a bit too nice
I've always loved that song.

i think 9th said he only did 5 tracks, though.
I generally steer clear of r'n'b and "big" hip hop albums because they're so often disappointing - I just stick to the singles and find I have the tracks I'd like or want to play.
