Timbaland Hints Collaboration With Drake For ‘Views From The 6′
NYMag’s culture site Vulture sat down with producer Timbaland recently and straight-up asked him if he was involved in the project and the super producer remained coy. „Are you on Drake’s Views From the 6? I could be.“ Most all artists over-record for their albums, so it’s entirely possible that Timbaland had a hand in the Views process but is unsure what has and hasn’t made the cut. Tim goes on to praise Drake for his present positioning in the game with the following quotes:
“I ain’t trying to be competing with no Apple, but the flow of music runs through either me or Drake. I’d rather team up with people like Drake.” “Drake is on everything. All that stuff I thought about five, six years ago. But what happened is life. Now I’m getting back to it, like, ‘Okay, you jumped the boat, but I started this.'” “I look at him like he could be related to me because he’s part of music. That boy’s doing a good job. You can’t compete with Drake because he got it. You gotta shock people in another way.
I think Timbaland and Young Thug is more shocking than Drake. Because you know what Drake is. But you never saw what Timbaland and Thug is. You never saw what Timbaland and Rich Homie Quan is. You never saw what Timbaland and Migos can do. You’ll be like, ‘You see the difference between what Timbaland did [compared to the old]?’ That will be the talk. And that will be a ‘View,’ along with his Views. You gotta find a way to stand beside that dude.”
