Producer-rapper Tim "Timbaland" Mosley, 35, who recently scored No. 1 hits with Justin Timberlake ("SexyBack") and Nelly Furtado ("Promiscuous"), reflects on his collaborators.

ON JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: We both enhance each other. I think he's brilliant. He's one of a kind.

ON MISSY ELLIOTT: An incredible artist. She's always been ahead of her time. We've known each other since high school. Just recently we've kind of been apart, but we're doing another album.

ON AALIYAH: Everything we shared was great. She was always outgoing. She liked to have fun.

ON NELLY FURTADO: I really wanted to do something different [with her]. We have a lot of magic.

ON JAY-Z: A dope lyricist. He doesn't write anything down. He doesn't talk about the same old bullcrap. He's always witty and very intelligent.
