Last week he was mad at NYC, now he’s mad at Hip-Hop too!

When fans hear the name Timbaland, usually they think Hip-Hop artist with a talent for creating ecelectic and original beats. He did put Keri Hilson on the map (besides her writing for artists). Well fans it’s my job to report the news to you, and news is that Timbaland doesn’t want anything to do with rap music anymore. In an interview with MTV he explains why his latest album Shock Value II is more pop instead of hip-hop. In other words he’s answering our questions as to why the heck he put Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry on his album instead say Kid Cudi or Ciara.

He says:
“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 who’s doing it. I look at Lil Wayne as being from my generation. Some people are still acceptable. Kanye is acceptable from my generation.

After my last album, I know where my bread and butter is at. I know 75 percent [of the people who buy my album] are women who love Timbaland and most are the women who watch ‘Desperate Housewives’ and all those others.

I did this research. It’s the women who watch ‘Sex and the City,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ — all the real go-to-the-bar women like Timbaland, and mostly European women.

It lets me know that my fanbase is mostly women and they are from all cultures. So it’s not a person who loves mostly Hip-Hop. It’s a person who loves everything besides Hip-Hop.”

Is it just me or did Timbaland just say most of the women who listen to his music are European? Uhh…I think not. He seems like a walking contradiction. He says no one from his generation is still doing hip-hop EXCEPT Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West. Seems to me there are still people rapping in your generation!
