Mosley wis born on Mairch 10, 1972 in Norfolk, Virginia, tae Latrice, wha ran a homeless shelter, an Garland Mosley, an Amtrak employee.[1][5] He graduated frae Salem High School o Virginia Beach, Virginia.[2][6] Durin his time as a DJ, he wis kent as "DJ Tim"[7] or "DJ Timmy Tim".[8] His brither, Sebastian, is reportedly around nine years younger.[9] His sister Courtney Rashon is a makeup airtist an author frae New Jersey. While attendin heich schuil, Timbaland began a long-term collaboration wi rapper Melvin (Magoo) Barcliff. The teenage Mosley an aa jyned the production ensemble S.B.I. (which stood for 'Surrounded By Idiots') which an aa featurt Neptunes producer Pharrell.[8] Mosley was an aa heich schuil freends wi brithers Terrence an Gene Thornton, wha wad acome kent as Pusha T an Malice o the rap group Clipse, respectively.[10] In 1986, when Timbaland wis 14 year auld, he wis accidentally shot bi a co-worker at a local Red Lobster restaurant an wis partially paralyzed for nine month.[11] Durin this time, he began tae learn how tae DJ usin his left hand.[12]

Sangster an rapper Missy Elliott heard his material an began working wi him. She an her R&B group, Sista, auditioned for DeVante Swing, a producer an member o the successfu R&B act Jodeci. DeVante signed Sista tae his Swing Mob record label an Elliott brocht Mosley an Barcliff alang wi her tae New York, where Swing Mob wis based. It wis DeVante wha renamit the young producer Timbaland, efter the Timberland brand o construction boots.[citation needit] He an Magoo acame pairt o SCI Zakys School stable o Swing Mob signees kent as "Da Bassment" crew, joinin airtists sic as R&B sangster Ginuwine, male vocal group Playa (Smoke E.

CareerEedit

1994–2002: Focus on production work an Tim's Bio: Life from da BassmentEedit

Timbaland began his producin career for R&B acts. In the early-1990s, he producit a few sangs for R&B acts sic as Jodeci an Sista. In 1996, he made his mainstream breakthrough bi producin the majority o baith Aaliyah's seicont album One in a Million an Ginuwine's debut album Ginuwine...the Bachelor. This included the major hit singles "If Your Girl Only Knew" bi Aaliyah an "Pony" bi Ginuwine. While Timbaland wis initially producin for R&B airtists, his trademark sound wis very much rooted in hip-hop wi its fast-paced nature an clear drum breaks. He wis takin a hip-hop sound an applyin it tae R&B, an in this way his sound wis instrumental in blurrin the distinction atween hip-hop an R&B production.[14] In 1997, he fully produced Supa Dupa Fly, the debut album o Missy Elliott, wha haed been a childhood friend o Mosley. In this album Timbaland continued wi his now trademark electronic production style, but since Missy frequently rapped the muisic wis considered hip-hop. An aa in 1997, he released his first album wi his partner Magoo, Welcome to Our World, an aa a hip-hop album. In the late 1990s, his hip-hop production sound wad acome very influential an common as he produced for mony high-profile hip-hop airtists includin Jay-Z, Nas, an The LOX. In 1999, he scored a major hit wi Jay Z an rap group UGK wi the hit "Big Pimpin'". He an aa fully produced Missy's seicont album in 1999, Da Real World. Still Timbaland in this period produced primarily for R&B airtists. He continued tae produce for Ginuwine an Aaliyah, as well as contributin significantly tae albums bi Xscape, Nicole, Playa, an Total. He remixed Usher's major hit "You Make Me Wanna". In the early 2000s Timbaland produced sangs includin Ludacris' "Roll Out (My Business)",[15] Jay-Z's "Hola' Hovito",[16] Petey Pablo's "Raise Up",[17] an Beck's civer o David Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" durin this period.[18] He an aa contributed three sangs, all eventually released as singles, tae Aaliyah’s self-teetled third album, the exotic lead single "We Need a Resolution" (featurin himself rapping a verse), "More than a Woman", an the ballad "I Care 4 U".[19] He an aa makes an appearance in Aaliyah's single "Try Again", which he an aa produced an co-wrote.

Timbaland & Magoo’s seicont album together wis slated for release in November 2000. Indecent Proposal wis tae feature appearances bi Beck, Aaliyah, as well as new Timbaland protégés—some frae his new Beat Club Records imprint--Ms. Jade, Kiley Dean, Sebastian (Timbaland's brither), Petey Pablo, an Tweet (wha wis a member o Sugah durin the Swing Mob days). The album wis delayed for an entire year, finally released in November 2001. It wis a commercial disappointment. Beck’s vocals for the track "I Am Music" war not included on the last version, which instead featurt Timbaland singin alang Steve "Static" Garrett o Playa an Aaliyah.[20] The first release on Beat Club wis the début album bi Bubba Sparxxx in September 2001, Dark Days, Bright Nights.[21] The loss o Aaliyah deeply affected Timbaland. In a phone call tae the MTV shaw Total Request Live, Timbaland said:

She was like blood, and I lost blood. Me and her together had this chemistry. I kinda lost half of my creativity to her. It's hard for me to talk to the fans now. Beyond the music, she was a brilliant person, the [most special] person I ever met.[22]

He made ends meet with a series of menial jobs, including washing dishes at a Red Lobster, until late one night he wound up on the wrong end of a gun. The bullet passed through Tim's neck and lodged in his right shoulder (fragments remain to this day). For nine months, Tim was paralyzed on his right side, forcing him to learn to DJ with his left hand.
    Tim rarely talks aboot the shooting, an is, in fact, quite critical o gangsta rappers wha boast o thair war wounds. I'm not a rapper," he says dismissively. I'm not talking about my scars or my battles. Still, the shooting did help him form a bond wi 50 Cent. I'll tell you this, Tim says. If you get shot and you survive, you feel like you're an Incredible Hulk. Them bullets don't hurt when they go in. But then they got that burnin', that acid burn. Goddamn!
