Superproducer TIMBALAND scooped a double win at the 21st Annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards on Monday night (23Jun08), taking two top prizes including Songwriter of the Year.
The Apologize beatmaker, who has scored chart success with artists like Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and OneRepublic, was also honoured for his work on rapper Fabolous' song Make Me Better.
