Tim's Bio: Life from da Bassment is a 1998 album released by Blackground Records. Though nominally the debut solo album by R&B/hip-hop producer Timbaland, the LP is technically a compilation of tracks produced by Timbaland and often – though not strictly – featuring his vocals. A litany of guest stars appear on Tim's Bio, from Timbaland's "Swing Mob" partners Magoo, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Playa, and Skillz, to outside performers Nas, Jay-Z, Twista and others. Tim's Bio notably marks the on-record debut of Ludacris on "Phat Rabbit", later included on his debut LP Back for the First Time (2000).

There is a music video of "Lobster & Scrimp" featuring Jay-Z. The video premiered on January 4, 1999, was shot in Las Vegas, Nevada, and directed by Timbaland himself (credited as real name, Tim Mosley).
