. The mega produce, born Timothy Mosley talks about the careers of superstars Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliot.


He also brings up suicidal thoughts, and his secret love for Aaliyah. Check out a few excerpts from his interview.


On Aaliyah: “When I first met Aaliyah—it’s time for the world to hear this, I’m gonna give up a little secret—I was in love with her. I said, But I’m not… She just a baby, I’m old. I said to myself, ‘I’m just gonna be her brother.’ Oh man, I was fightin’, I was fightin’ a lot—a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.”


On Justin Timberlake: “Me and Justin, it’s the weirdest thing. We just say we’re gonna kill them and then we kill them…We get together, we break bread and we spill out music. That’s what we do.”


On Missy Elliott: “She was just super dope…she was God-sent; that was my sister.”


On his weight gain: “I was almost 400 pounds. Who wants to be a 400-pound black man? I’m looking in the mirror, my breast is bigger than a girl breast. And I was saying, ‘That Anita cool.’ So I got very depressed, like suicidal depressed.”


On his marriage to wife Monique: “It’s probably hard to be married to me. It’s not easy. I’m a musical genius. I’m weird, I do crazy things, it’s not like the average norm. But I’m a loving guy.”


That was just a teaser I cant wait to watch the special. Timb definitely has longevity in the game.
