Timbaland - E! True Hollywood Story [Full Episode]

Growing up in South Carolina and North Carolina, Pharrell and Timbaland were my two favorite musicians.  I was obsessed with Timbalands beats and I would buy his Timbaland & Magoo albums along with all of the Missy, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Playa, and Nicole Wray singles that he produced.

Along the years, my admiration for Timbaland faded away due to many substantial allegations that he was  stealing beats from overseas, and it made me question how much of his legacy is truly his.  Now, I realize that whatever his involvement, he's still a genius who has impacted music in multiple genres for the better.  In the latest episode of E!'s True Hollywood Story, he doesn't hold anything back.

Young Jeezy - A Hustlerz Ambition [Documentary]

I'm not sure why Young Jeezy and his team put this out before the album hits shelves tomorrow given that it was really the only incentive to purchasing a physical copy of the already leaked TM: 103 Hustlerz Ambition, but hey.

The Young Jeezy documentary, A Hustlerz Ambition, which is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, tells the story of the Atlanta trapper and covers the trials of his life growing up with little to nothing to revisiting key moments of his career.  Watch below, and make sure you do the right thing and cop TM: 103 when it drops tomorrow!
