Why do I suddenly have the urge for a Beat THang?
I once had that urge…. and actually got one…. biggest buyers remorse of all time
Are the beats by renowned producer Timbaland definitely not someone else’s work? I’d hate to imagine renowned producer Timbaland using work that wasn’t actually his and passing it off as his own. I can’t even conceive of a world where renowned producer Timbaland took something created by someone else, from the internet, and used it without attribution to the original artist, accepting money for the work, then disparaging the original artist. It’s hard to know “what’s public domain and what’s not” but I would, of course, put my absolute faith in renowned producer Timbaland.
