Timbaland Blasts Critics
Producer TIMBALAND has blasted critics who have accused him of losing his touch, insisting he has turned his doubters into copycats desperate to mimic his sound. Timbaland - real name TIMOTHY MOSELY - has set international charts alight this year (06) with his collaborations with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and NELLY FURTADO, and insists he was just resting when he went quiet for a few months. He tells MTV.com, "Everybody was talking their little trash, y'all know who y'all are. "They said, 'Timbaland is falling off.' I don't never fall off. I just relax like a vampire in the coffin. When I wake up, you better be prepared, because somebody is going to get bit on the neck. "Next thing you know, I have a slew of vampires running around. When you become the best like me, you never fall off, you just lean back."
