Bubba Sparxxx : Ugly

Rugged beats from Timbaland's new protege

Bubba Sparxxx : Ugly

Timbaland, as you must know by now, is the world's most innovative hip hop producer; 24-year-old Bubba is his new protege. And when Timbo gets a protege, the world sits up and listens. And what the planet hears is rugged beats, Southern inflections and nimble rapping - like Missy Elliott driving a tractor. And indeed Missy Elliott does turn up driving a tractor in the strange and slightly disgusting video. It's brilliant, of course, if not quite the seismic shock that Tim's other big production, 'Get Ur Freak On', produced earlier this year. What more do you want - blood?
