It seems like Jay-Z is looking to make the year 2013 a year of major moves. Wednesday, the rapper announced that he has signed super producer Timbaland to Roc Nation. He broke the news on his “Life & Times” blog, posting a picture with the two old friends and collaborators chilling in the studio. The caption read, “Roc Nation welcomes TImbaland to the family.”
