Even though I'm a metalhead at heart I really like Timbaland's stuff.

Pop was really inventive in his prime and nowadays it's all EDM and mumble rap shit. I miss his productions.

Also, there's an album that most people hate, but I really enjoy, that was produced by him:

He was amazing. It's funny how he's got an incredibly varied catalogue, but you can still instantly tell if he's worked on a track.

A few of my favorites by him were 4 minutes to save the world and promiscuous.

Even though he's prolific, he still doesn't get enough attention.
Between Timbaland and Dre, I'd be hard-pressed to say which is better.

Premier is still the GOAT though, but that's an unfair comparison.

Timothy Zachary Mosley (born March 10, 1972),[2] known professionally as Timbaland, is an American record producer, rapper, singer, songwriter and DJ.[3]

Timbaland's first full credit production work was in 1996 on Ginuwine...the Bachelor for R&B singer Ginuwine. After further work on Aaliyah's second studio album One in a Million (1996) and Missy Elliott's debut studio album Supa Dupa Fly (1997), Timbaland became a prominent producer for R&B and hip hop artists. As a rapper he initially released several albums with fellow rapper Magoo, followed by his debut solo album Tim's Bio in 1998. In 2002, Timbaland produced the hit single "Cry Me a River" for Justin Timberlake, going on to produce most of Timberlake's subsequent LPs such as FutureSex/LoveSounds and The 20/20 Experience and their respective hit singles. A Timbaland-owned imprint label, Mosley Music Group, featured artists such as Nelly Furtado, whose Timbaland-produced album Loose (2006) was a commercial and critical success. In 2007, Timbaland released a solo album, Shock Value, which was followed by Shock Value II in 2009.

Aside from the aforementioned artists, Timbaland's production credits from the 2000s forward include work with Jay-Z, Nas, Ludacris, Bubba Sparxxx, Madonna, Rihanna, OneRepublic, Brandy, Drake, Rick Ross and others. As a songwriter he has written as of 2014, 85 UK hits and 99 hits Stateside.[4] Timbaland has received widespread acclaim for his production style. In 2007, Entertainment Weekly stated that "just about every current pop trend can be traced back to him — from sultry, urban-edged R&B songstresses ... to the art of incorporating avant-garde sounds into No. 1 hits."
