Music producer Timbaland is on the verge of quitting the music industry, because he is bored of being the best and most innovative. The hip hop star, who has never won a Grammy, is looking for a protege to pass on his rap empire to. He says, "I don't need to do anything for money. I'm just glad to have a job. But music is boring right now. I'm too innovative for the world. I've been doing it so long, I'm about to throw in the towel. "I'm about to de-crown myself and pass it over to one of the up-and-coming producers under me. They won't be able to be me - there's only one Timbaland - but there's a certain sound that I try to teach."
