Hip-hop mogul/producer Timbaland is to become an honorary patron of Dublin's Trinity College next month, reports On the Record.

The producer, real name Timothy Z. Mosley, has worked his magic on Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and OneRepublic in recent years, as well as releasing albums under his own guise.

More details are yet to be announced, but the appearance and awarding of the patronage will only be open to members of the 'Phil'.
