Timbaland Calls The Aaliyah Biopic A ‘Mockery’ On Hot 97

News

This morning (Nov. 17) Timbaland took to the airwaves to express his thoughts about the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic. After posting several memes on Instagram, and voicing his opinions (in caps) on Twitter, the producer called in to Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning. He spoke from his heart, on a topic that he hasn’t spoken about since Aaliyah’s death.

“For the first time, I think everybody was all in agreeance on everything when it came to Baby Girl with this bio — it wasn’t done right. It was just done wrong,” he said.

Admitting that he has not spoken with Aaliyah’s family since the film aired, Timbo also said that he initially believed the movie was a rumor. He shared that his meme and video posts were reactions to fans who left comments to him as the film aired, prompting him to speak out. Timbaland also spoke on whether or not he owned the masters to Aaliyah’s music.
