In a new video interview with Revolt TV, Timbaland teased an upcoming project that blends his music with vocal performances from the late Michael Jackson. The project, which the producer describes as "two kings working together," was apparently initiated by Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid.

Though details remain unclear, Timbaland did mention a track named "Chicago." Earlier this year, Timbaland spoke about against a 2012 track from Chris Brown and Drake that featured vocals from the late R&B star Aaliyah.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
