28 Nov


Yes!!  After over a decade, it is now official!  Timbaland will produce the next Ginuwine album, due in 2015!  The acclaimed producer and cult favorite singer both made the announcement yesterday via their social media.  The announcement also included a short iMovie trailer that is only viewable (at this time) on mobile devices.  You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTXAl8O6RGw&feature=youtu.be …  One thing worth noting is that Missy Elliot was mentioned on the credit part of the trailer as a feature!  This is also fantastic news that so many of us die hard Basement fans have been waiting years for!  We will report more news as we get it!
