Hayes came to the scene with a backing from both Dr. Dre and Timbaland but we haven’t heard Dre ever mention him as part of Aftermath, or otherwise. He is still working with his other boss, Timbaland as can be seen from this picture. A few hours ago, he tweeted this flick of himself in the lab with 50, Timbo and Floyd.
Some fans have been critical of 50’s famous collaboration with Timbaland ‘Ayo Technology’ from his Curtis album but it also remains his last biggest hit, peaking at no.5 on Billboard Hot 100 in 2007. Time will tell what this studio session resulted in.
