Rapper/Producer Timbaland Will Join Jay-Z at BJC

It was announced today that superstar producer and rapper Timbaland will join Jay-Z at his upcoming show at the Bryce Jordan Center on Jan. 31.

Timbaland is one of hip-hop’s biggest producers, having produced tracks on several big name albums, such as Missy Elliott’s Supa Dupa Fly, Black Eyed Peas’ Monkey Business, Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, and several of Jay-Z’s albums, including The BlueprintThe Black Album, and most recently, Magna Carta Holy Grail, the album that Jay-Z’s current tour is supporting.

In addition to that, Timbaland has released three albums as a rapper, although he hasn’t released an album to 2009’s Shock Value II, which was most notable for the hit single “If We Ever Meet Again (feat. Katy Perry).”

Prior to that, Timbaland released the albums Tim’s Bio: Life from da Bassment in 1998 and Shock Value in 2007. While the former didn’t crack the Billboard’s Top 200 chart, Shock Value was one of the biggest albums of the year, and featured three hit singles: “Give it to Me” (feat. Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake), “The Way I Are” (feat. Keri Hilson), and arguably his biggest song, “Apologize” (feat. One Republic).

The performance will be the final show on Jay-Z’s “Magna Carta” Tour, so who knows if this is the only trick that Jay-Z has up his sleeve. Regardless, the show is going to be awesome, and it will almost definitely be the biggest show to come through Happy Valley in some time.
