Throwback of the Day
Timbaland & Magoo ft Missy Elliot- Cop That Disk
In 2003 Timbaland & Magoo released a duo album titled Under Construction, Part II, a sequel to Missy Elliott’s album Under Construction and this song was the 1st single off the album.
The single didn’t do extremely well in the charts but it was in everybody’s ears and mouth! It was such a banger back in the day and even still today when it’s dropped anywhere people are ready to break it!
The video alone was groundbreaking, bring forward the moves and fashion of 80s Hip Hop. From the dancing, battles and swag of 80s just to educate the kids of today!
The beat was too hard not to move to it, even writing this now I’m busting a few moves! From the loop of the piano to the hard beat of the drums, Timbaland really is a professor of production.
To the hard lyrics from all the artists! Bringing forward the lyrics of iconic Rappers; Timbaland’s verse- ‘I Know I Got Soul’ by Eric B & Rakim, Missy’s verse- ‘Paper Thin’ by MC Lyte and Magoo’s verse- ‘I Got It Made’ by Special Ed but also mixing it with their own flow and lyrics.
I think this song and video will go down in history as one of the best of Timbalands, Magoo and Missy tracks! Too much!
