Four days ago Kasseem Dean aka Swizz Beatz revealed also via Instagram that there probably be a Beat Battle of Pharrell VS. Timbaland by saying “therealswizzzThe face you make when you’re waiting for @pharrell to battle @timbaland for the culture 😂🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 CC @justblaze ⚡️⚡️⚡️oh yeah I had my AP in 2000⚡️ @kodaklens my shirt was 15X 😂🙈” Stay tuned or more information.
Just Blaze just teased a potential beat battle between Pharrell and Timbaland. After having the beat battle against Swizz Beatz two months ago, Just Blaze just revealed getting off the phone with Timbaland considering a Beat Battle against no other than Pharrell, but is this really happening, I mean Pharrell is way to humble to compete for the Beat Battle, he would adress the whole time Timbaland as the King but we all know Pharrell would win that one easy.
Both of them are considered as the best producers of all time and that itself would bring a huge hype all over the place a great marketing to release the new N*E*R*D/Timbaland single, nonetheless, Scott Vener replied to the Just Blaze tweet saying that he would take bets that it’ll never happen, what do you think guys!

Tim vs Neptunes would be the real deal. If @ChadHugo showed up I might shed a tear.

It looks like we’re getting a Justified 2.0 after all. It’s been nearly four years since Justin Timberlake shut down the Pop/R&B game and went back-to-back with The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. And while he’s worked on a handful of projects since—namely the Trolls soundtrack, which featured his chart-topping single “Can’t Stop The Feeling“—we’ve yet to hear what the 36-year-old star has in store for his proper follow-up.
We’ll still have to wait on the music, but a recent Instagram post from Timberlake suggests he’s hard at work on the project. Even more promising, the IG post featured Pharrell and Timbaland, two legendary producers who have played a major role in the sound and success of JT’s solo career. What’s more, Danja, who works closely with Timbaland, said he and Timbo along with The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) were working on a project together. Stay tuned for more info.

A couple of weeks before the world will get to see it, Missy Elliott stops by the Manhattan headquarters of her label, Atlantic, to give staff a sneak peek of the video for her hypnotically percussive, Pharrell Williams-produced new single, “WTF (Where They From),” the latest in a series of highly conceptual, future-shock clips that revolutionized the visual language of pop music. It’s also the 44-year-old hip-hop legend’s first real single in 10 years. But the wait is going to be just a tiny bit longer. “I’m going to tinkle real quick,” Elliott says cheerfully, with just a hint of a Southern accent. “Won’t take me a minute.”
When she returns, her cousin Corte Ellis, a songwriter, pulls a MacBook out of a rolling bag and hands it to the MC. She cues up the clip, and “WTF” roars through the Godzilla-scale speakers. Onscreen, a dizzying array of imagery and superb choreography flies by: Elliott in a disco-ball jumpsuit, Elliott leading a squad of zombie dancers and, coolest of all, Elliott and Williams transformed into extremely funky marionettes. “You must be real important to have her show it to you,” co-director Dave Meyers, who has collaborated with Elliott since 2001’s “Get Ur Freak On,” later says to me. “She has had that shit on lockdown!”

Hello Missy! It feels as if you’ve almost come back a few times over the past 10 years. Why is now the right time?
Wow! Well, the times before, we were just testing the water. I tell people, when God aligns the stars, then I go. I’d most definitely say that Pharrell was the captain of the ship – he asked me to perform with him last year at the BET Awards, and then Katy Perry asked me to do the Super Bowl with her. After the Super Bowl, I think I was in shock. I was getting mad calls: “Do you see what’s goin’ on?” “Do you see what people are sayin’?” By that point I was back at my house washing dishes and vacuuming my floor! I’ve got my scarf on my head! And then Pharrell called. He said: “If you would have it, I would like to get in the studio with you.” And I was like: “This is Pharrell, am I gonna be non-busy? I’m vacuuming my floor!” So I said OK.
What sort of vacuum cleaner is it?
It’s one that you push. It’s a regular vacuum cleaner! I do regular things! When WTF dropped, my phone was blowing up – people were texting me and emailing me. People be like: “You’re not gonna have no GET-TOGETHER? No dinner?” I’m like: “I’m here WASHING MY DOGS!” They’re like: “WASHING YOUR DOGS? Don’t you see what’s happening on Twitter and Instagram and Facebook?” I’m like: “I’m washing my dogs.”
