knockin' timb's

Even in london they say, "Tim, We love ya"
They even call me things like wicked, and the effin' Govnah"

Governement Names put us on to this Timbaland mix by Bigg Rome exposing the origin of many of his ‘world music’ samples. It doesn’t take away from Tim’s ‘creative’ depth so much as re-emphasize his ‘crate-ive’ depth.
The ‘Indian Carpet’ sample is hilarious because it really sounds like that is what the vocalist is saying. The flamenco handclaps that become Missy’s backbeat was a surprise to hear as was the ‘All Y’all’ melody which I would have sworn was an Asian record but turns out to be Irish!
