SERGIO MENDES' Timeless. Hip hop collaboration album
There is a heavy Black Eyed Peas presence, with Will I Am all over the damn thing, which kind of sucks. So I'll guess it will have loads of kiddy raps, though Q-Tip, Chali 2na & Black Thought also appear. Surprisingly Pharoahe Monch is on a track with Justin Timberlake? Sheesh! The only Brazilians I can see are Guinga & Marcelo D2. You can hear some tracks streamed & they sound exactly as one would imagine. Breezy tunes with guest raps on them. Was this really needed? It's all a bit...neh! Might go dig up some Brasil 66 instead.
