Timbaland says that Jermaine Dupri and Dvsn’s new song, “If I Get Caught,” has him feeling inspired.
Dupri shared a video of Timbaland‘s comments on Instagram, Friday, thanking the legendary producer for the support.
“I wanna congratulate Dvsn and Jermaine … and Dvsn had a talk when I was at Missy’s party,” Timbaland said in the clip. “And I gotta agree, it sat with me. I didn’t tell you this, but it sat with me Dvsn, you right. Your sound over what I do would be amazing, absolutely incredible.”

He continued: “But let’s salute Jermaine, one of the pioneers of this shit. Standing on 10 toes and bringing that shit to life! That song right now got girls goin’ crazy! You can’t deny it, he got me inspired. That’s what music’s ‘posed to do. He got me saying, ‘Tim, get back in your bag.’ And guess what, JD? Thank you.”
“If I Get Caught” was released by Dvsn at the end of July, and while popular, the Jay-Z sampling track was also met with backlash for its so-called “toxic” themes. Dupri dismissed critics of the song at the time as being “musically blind.”
