JAY Z AND TIMBALAND WILL USE BAG PIPES

Timbaland


JAY-Z's new album will shock his hard-core rap fans, because Timbaland plans to feature bagpipes on the disc’s tracks. The rappers are teaming up in the studio to record the Big Pimpin’ star’s new LP, and Timbaland insists using the Scottish instruments will give the songs global appeal. He says, "We want to go to the world. Some of the songs are gonna sound like (world music artist) M.I.A. "You’re gonna be like, ‘Whoa!’ But it’s Jay on them. That means it reaches everywhere. "I’m gonna have songs with bagpipes too. The music is gonna be so worldwide, he’ll be able to tour the rest of his life, maybe, off just this one album."

TIMBALAND TO QUIT MUSIC BUSINESS

Timbaland is ready to quit the music business.The super-producer - who masterminded recent hits for Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado - is planning to retire because modern music has become "stale" and "boring". He said: "I just do music. It can easily get stale, so I'm always creating, innovating new stuff. I don't get into it that deep, I just do whatever I feel, it's real simple."I don't need to do anything for money. I'm just glad to have a job.But music is boring right now. I'm too innovative for the world.I've been doing it so long, I'm about ready to throw in the towel. I'm about to de-crown myself and pass it over to one of the up-and-coming producers under me. "They won't be able to be me - there's only one Timbaland - but there's a certain sound that I try to teach." The millionaire music mogul has also revealed he started making records to try and bring happiness into people's lives. He said: "I like entertaining people. I can't make them happy - I'm not God,and only God can control your emotions and your moods. "I just like to be a part of their mood swings, that's what I like and that's why I love music."
