Timbaland celebrated his 41st birthday with his wife Monique Idlett and a small list of industry friends Thursday, March 14, at Southern Hospitality, a Memphis BBQ restaurant in New York City. As one would expect, long time friend and collaborator Missy Elliott was in attendance.
Other attendees included the current golden boy Justin Timberlake, who showed face with his spouse Jessica Biel by his side, Jay-Z, Jamie Foxx, and even Chelsea Clinton. Yes, we’re as weirded out by the last one as you are.
Elliott made sure to publicly wish Timbo a happy birthday on Twitter. “Happy Birthday Bro we come from the Bottom together my Nig! *drakevoice* Love u may God Bless u 2 C many More Bdays!”
It’s our guess that the festive gathering was also a celebration of Timbaland’s resurgence, most of which has to do with the praises he’s receiving for his work on Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which he fully produced. Just a few days ago, the Virginia producer alluded that he had more up his sleeve, tweeting “and just think u aint heard nothing yet haha i’m just gettin started.”
Could the Instagram flicks of Timbaland with Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz mean anything here? See photos from the excursion after the jump.
