Timbaland has signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label.

The rapper and producer - who has worked on tracks for Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland and a host of other stars - has signed with Jay's label, which is also home to Rita Ora and Alexis Jordan.

Jay posted a picture of them together on his Life + Times blog, with a caption reading: "We would like to welcome Timbaland to the Roc Nation family!"

Timbaland, whose real name is Timothy Mosley, also tweeted about the move, writing: "Just want to thank everybody who is congratulating me on my new business venture. I appreciate it. #bigmoves #newbeginnings #rocnation (sic)."

Timbaland has also previously produced tracks for Jay - who founded Roc Nation in 2008 - including hits 'Big Pimpin', 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder' and 'N***a What, N***a Who'.

His most recent collaboration saw him team up with Justin Timberlake on his new single, 'Suit & Tie' and he is also expected to release a new solo album this year.
