It’s no secret that Timbaland was a big fan of Aaliyah, but in this interview with REVOLT, the super-producer reveals his admiration for Drake.
In the video, Timbaland can be heard calling Drake a “young soldier” and even predicts that the Young Money emcee will be around for a long time.
He also dishes on a “secret” song Nas is currently working on with Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. Check out the video of Mr. Timbaland below.

Rapper Drake showed his softer side in an open letter to the late Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Haughton tragically died on August 25, 2001 in a plane crash. Apparently, Drake was a huge fan of the late singer. Take a look below at his heartfelt letter.
Dear Dana,I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!
Love you always and forever,
