Those Jay-Z Timbaland Songs Could’ve Been Worse

And by could’ve been we mean they actually were worse, as evidenced by this non-Blueprint 3 song produced by Timbaland. Next to “Ghetto Techno,” the other leaked BP3 Tim tracks—”Venus Vs Mars,” “Reminder” and “Off That”—sound like the lord himself rewrote “Planet Rock,” and “D.O.A.” and “Run This Town” actually deliver Penelope Cruz to your doorstep covered in honey with $100 bills stuck where necessary to keep her street legal (Javier Bardem for the ladies). But seriously, one of the goofiest threads on the internet is talking shit about Jay. These songs may not be good, but some of the other ones will be and his status as one of the best ever won’t be tarnished, just like when Brett Favre throws 9,000 interceptions this year and one sweet touchdown that reminds everyone how ridiculous he used to be.

  2. sexliesandvideotape says:

    so this is a bass heavy ode to alcoholism and being emo. quite ghetto indeed.

  3. Timbaland… as good as he was… needs to be shot for this

    is noz the one you’re talking about that’s bashing jay-z on the reg? noz of he just can’t stop tweet-hating on hova.

    this shit is the worst…Timbaland is not the same dude he once was in the late 90′s and early 2000′s. Jay should realize that he has nothing to prove any more. He is the best that is still living..He should respectfully bow out like all great legends do…i.e..Michael Jordan,Magic Johnson,George Foreman, Wanyne Gretzsky and so should he. He cant compete with the bull shit that we hear the radio today. Our ears have been conditioned to love bull shit music now…and Im actually pretty sad that Jay is trying to fit in with these clowns instead of the showing them the way….

    say whay you will but GHETTO TECHNO is a hot f*ckin record. That’s my prediction!

  7. TimFan says:

    I agree. Ghetto Techno is the best of this four Tim/Jay-z tracks.

  8. BravelaCOG says:

    Sad, this is actually making me want to get up and dance. Let’s just say this is neither Tim’s nor Jay’s finest work.

  9. dubfire says:

    I really hate the fact this record is called ghetto techno. It just shows how little Timbaland knows about Techno to even think about calling it techno. I know its not his intention to make a real techno record, but Timbaland’s production is childish if you compared him to real techno producers. The sound is just so lame on it, Tim needs get off the presets and make some original shit. This sounds like Nitty with better drums…garbage

    this is hova playing around with us. This can’t be on the album.

  11. Striggity says:

  12. murdamurda says:

    this song is effin crack. What jay cant have fun?? he aint sellin crack shooting no body or talkin bout maybachs. Its a track for the club about partying getting drunk and getting laid. which would sum up a successful club night experience. STOP HATIN’

    You guys need to be more open minded. I thought this tune was a banger. It would be a big club hit.
