The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

23. Timbaland f/ Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake "Give It to Me" (2007)

Album: Shock Value
Label: Mosley, Blackground, Interscope

"Give It to Me" was the lead pre-release single for Shock Value, Timbaland's follow up to his 1998 debut solo album Tim's Basement. "Give It to Me" had Nelly Furtado, Timbaland & Justin Timberlake trading brash chest-beating verses over layered bongos and foreboding horror soundtrack keys. Tim's verse is memorable for bringing ether for his one-time protege Scott Storch, who popped off on a diss track called "Built Like That" and got served with shots like "I'm a producer, you're just a piano man" and "I get half a mil for my beats, you get a couple grand."
