Super producer Timbaland has announced a new mixtape entitled King Stays King which is scheduled to drop on Christmas Day.
Timbaland has been quiet recently, which he has attributed to his extensive work on the new release. Talking to Rap-Up he explained, “I’ve spent a lot of time working on this project and I am just looking forward to giving my fans some dope sounds to close out the year.”
The 16-track tape features a seemingly endless list of collaborators ranging from Young Thug to the late Aaliyah, whom Timbaland recently mentioned he had never-before-heard material from. Details on the track with the former R&B superstar are scarce, except that it is a previously unreleased track from the vaults.
Timbaland is currently working on two videos to accompany the mixtape’s release. The two tracks Get No Betta and Servin are sure to be the first taste we get, before the full mixtape is released alongside all the turkey and alcohol you can handle on Christmas Day.
The announced release comes somewhat as a surprise after the continually teased Textbook Timbo has still yet to see the light of day. Earlier this year Timbaland even went as far as to release a single from the album called Them Jeans, the track featured trap trio Migos alongside the producer/rapper.
Here’s hoping that Timbaland returns to the top of his game with some more classic R&B infused hip-hop.
