Missy Elliott and Timbaland were guests on Hot 97 today with Angie Martinez, and after playing their new songs "9th Inning" and "Triple Threat," they spoke about Drake's involvement in Aaliyah's posthumous album. It sounds like they're not even sure if an actual project is in the works. Here's what they had to say:
On Aaliyah's album coming out...
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.
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.
On Drake’s obsession with Aaliyah:
To me…..the tattoo part, did that man come in here and show ya’ll. Like lift up his shirt, I mean they said pictures are online.
I think that the tattoo is real, I did see a picture of it. You know what, let me be quiet….you know what it is, because he’s a human being too. A lot of people may not have met Michael Jackson, but feel they have a connection with him.
Timbaland also said he's only heard a snippet of "Enough Said," and told Angie he didn't want to hear it in full when she offered to play it for him. And Missy commented on Chris Lighty's passing. Listen to the audio below.
