Timbaland gives up on Hip Hop


Super producer Timbaland has turned his back on hip-hop for good - insisting the genre is "just not the same" as when he started out.

The Grammy-winning beatmaker began his career working for hip-hop superstars Ginuwine and Missy Elliott, but has moved away from his roots to focus on more pop-sounding tracks.

And after working with Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and the Pussycat Dolls, the star believes he's found his niche - insisting there are only a few of his hip-hop contemporaries who are still relevant.

He tells MTV, "I was done with hip-hop a long time ago. Once my generation left, I left. I do it, but there's nobody from my generation besides Jay-Z who's doing it. I look at Lil Wayne as being from my generation. Some people are still acceptable. Kanye (West) is acceptable from my generation. It's just not the same. By it not being the same, I kind of fade to black. I did music that fits where I was going to in my age bracket.

"I figured it out a couple of years ago with Nelly (Furtado) and Justin (Timberlake) and myself. We had a tremendous run. I think it was good for me to do that. But I got this run, I'm not gonna stop until I wanna stop."

Lil Wayne caught in private cell with Male Corrections Officer...

Capt. Raphael Collazzo was caught on a security camera making an unexplained 45-minute visit to the rapper's cell, which is supposed to be an isolation lockup, sources said.

"We don't know what he was doing. We know the camera picked him up," said one source.

Collazzo's explanation "did not suffice to explain the time he spent" with the rapper, who is serving a one-year sentence for a loaded gun on his tour bus, the source added.

Collazzo was suspended without pay for 10 days, said agency spokeswoman Sharman Stein, who declined to elaborate.
