Timbaland using Beaterator on album

"I had to," says hip-hop mogul.

Hip-hop's prime producer Timbaland has said he used PSP game Beaterator to make a pair of tracks for his upcoming album Shock Value 2.

"Oh yeah, I made a couple from that... I had to," he told Invasion Radio after bigging-up the capabilities of the software (Koalition via Kotaku) he helped create.

Beaterator is a collaboration between Rockstar and Timbaland, and offers a bevy of music production tools to set you on your path to hip-hop fame.

We thought it a "rare triumph". Head over to our Beaterator review to find out why.
