Hip-hop superproducer Timbaland almost missed out on the chance to work with his longtime collaborator Jay-Z on his new album after the old pals had a falling out.

Timbaland is featured in new advertisements for "Magna Carta Holy Grail," with the commercials depicting him in the studio with Jay-Z, Rick Rubin, Swizz Beatz and Pharrell Williams as they discuss their ideas and tracks for the project. However, Timbaland reveals Jay-Z almost didn't invite him to take part in the process due to a personal slight following their last collaboration on "The Blueprint 3" in 2009. The producer refuses to go into detail about the issue, but suggests all was resolved between the two friends after he apologized.

During an interview on rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs' new RevoltTV network, he says, "Jay and I fell out; I missed his 40th [birthday] ... It was over petty stuff. It was more personal stuff and disagreements. It was not industry-related. It was personal and I was wrong... "It [the fall-out] was low key, nobody know about this ... But when you're real friends, you will disagree and not speak and come back together and realize that you're better together than apart."

You and the other media outlets must a fixation with Jay Z or is he paying you all to keep his name in the media.  Give us all a break!!!  My opinion.

The only person that should be apologizing is JZ for continuing to be one of the shitiest rappers in the History of Hip-Hop. Diddy, Drake, and this egotastic idiot JZ.... are the worst ever. How in the hell these fellas sell their craptacular music, is beyond me. Drake is not so bad when he's singing, but the rap, just like the other two guys sounds like pure crap.  Biggie and Pac probably turn in their graves every time some ghetto fabulous impala rides by the cemetary blaring one these guys songs.

Having a great relationship with anyone requires,  admitting when you are wrong.  Being able to trust someone, and not to be disrespectful, is very helpful.   Be able to talk things out, is always helpful, but  listening to one another is most important.....don't assume you are always right.
