And the saga continues.
Super-producers Missy Elliott and Timbaland sat down with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez yesterday to discuss new music and, of course, one of the topics included the Aaliyah album controversy surrounding Drake. In news that will surely get Deacon X fired up again, Missy reveals that she has not been contacted to work on the late singer’s proposed album. On whether or not she would like to contribute to the project, Misdemeanor had this to say:
“No call has been made to me. I have to respect her family, and until they come and say they’re ready to do an Aaliyah album then I don’t really want to get into that because it’s very sensitive. It’s not records that already done came out, we’re talking about unfinished music. And we don’t know what her reasoning for not putting those records out. Maybe she didn’t feel like they were her best work. We just don’t want to tap into that, just spiritually something else you know…..very very touchy. Unless her parents came in and conducted that.”
Timbaland also reveals that he too hasn’t been contacted and that he isn’t even sure if an album is actually in the works.
“I don’t even know if it’s an album, I don’t think that’s in the works. I don’t know, I think it’s blown out of proportion. I haven’t spoken to Drake yet. I have a hard time just hearing her music.”
As for the duo’s opinion on “Enough Said,” Timbo says he hasn’t heard the entire record nor does he plan to. So that pretty much tells us all we need to know about their involvement.
Full interview, where they discuss their new music and the passing of Chris Lighty, can be heard at Miss Info’s.
