Here is a nice Timbaland article by timesonline.com where Timbo The King is talking about his time at “Surrounded By Idiots”. Mosley was born in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1971, and it’s possible it was simply his destiny to make music: that’s certainly the way he sees it. “I didn’t have no plan to do this, it just happened,” he says, gesticulating at the huge hotel room and the expensive suitcases that litter the suite. “I just loved music as a kid. How it got to be the thing it became is a mystery — it bugs me out.” Initially intending to be a DJ, he formed a group called Surrounded By Idiots with Pharrell Williams before making beats for his friend Missy.
Virginia may not be a rap mecca like New York or California, but the state has produced a wealth of musical talent since the mid-1990s, including The Neptunes, Elliott, the rappers Clipse and Mosley’s own producer protégé, Danjahandz. “Pharrell be saying there’s something in the water, but I don’t know,” he grunts. “It’s a regular, anywhere place. Nothing spectacular.” He goes back often, he nods, to attend church with his mother: “I’m still close to my family; I’m very family-oriented.” Although Surrounded by Idiots folded before school was out, the up-and-comer started to make a name for himself in 1996, creating a new style of R&B for singers such as Ginuwine and Aaliyah.

There will be someone shakin’ it 4 daddy in Robin Thicke’s life in a few months, only it’s not going to be a curvaceous female rapper in a short, tight skirt. Instead it’ll be he and wife Paula Patton’s first son. Tyra Banks asked the Sex Therapy crooner on her talk show yesterday whether he thinks his namesake will follow in his sultry footsteps as a singer. Then she let her audience members ask Robin for advice about—what else—doin’ the nasty.
Junius, a group that struggles to even put their own sound into words, is not your ordinary band. The roots of their name go deep in philosophical thought from an anonymous political rebel who questioned the status quo. Their new album, ‘The Martyrdom Of A Catastrophist‘ chronicles the life of Immanuel Velikovsky, a Russian psychoanalyst scientist who had theories about the Earth’s past. They spent three years creating an album about a man who has a story to tell. Spinner.com caught up with frontman Joseph Martinez recently in anticipation of the group’s SXSW gig where they been asked about whats their musical guilty pleasure:
“I really dig Gwen Stefani and the fact that she has the greatest producer, Pharrell Williams. All the songs he touches are amazing. I think he is one of the greatest producers of our time, especially in this last decade. Maybe my guilty pleasure is really Pharrell Williams-produced tracks.”
Here is a Video of Rosco P. Coldchain from the Hot Damn DVD (2003) with The Neptunes talking about how they find out about Rosco P. back in 2001 at the Philly’s Most Wanted Suckas Video Shot and some Shoutouts from Ms. Jade & Others.

It looks like The Neptunes produced ‘ Certified’ didn’t make the album but the sad thing about this album is 9 out of 13 tracks have already leaked which sucks but album is out march 30 for those who wants to pay for the 4 unreleased songs.
