Kweli Credits Timberlake With 'Beefier' Sound

U.S. hip-hop star TALIB KWELI has credited JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE with helping him "beef up his sound" for his new album. The rapper, who collaborated with the singer on track The Nature, insists the SexyBack hitmaker was an inspiration during the recording of LP Eardrum. He says, "I had been recording at Record Plant in Los Angeles, and kept running into Justin Timberlake, who I went to Tanzania with on Cameron Diaz' MTV show (Trippin'). "I learned a lot watching him prepare his record... Justin works hard at beefing up his sound so it hits your ear right, and that's what I was focused on for my record."
