12 Reasons Why Pharrell Had The Best Summer


“Blurred Lines”

Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” featuring T.I. and Pharrell spends an 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is arguably the song of the summer. This is Pharrell’s third Billboard Hot 100. His previous was Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot” (three weeks, 2004) and Ludacris’ “Money Maker” (two, 2006).

    Unh… Regulate Nigga! Skateboard Nigga! Live For This!!! Most Of Us Are Not Living At All!!! Get Yours Nigga! Get Yours Baby! Unh! Yo! Yo! Jay Was 27 When Reasonable Doubt Dropped… He Detailed The Struggles He Endured Pre-Reasonable Doubt On “This Can’t Be Life”. Im 30! I Totally Relate To That Song! Ive Always Enjoyed Pharrells Production Since Way Back To Harlem World & N.O.R.E! To See Him Elevate To This Level Is What I Aspire For! His 2000-2004 Run Was Dominant & Relentless! He Stepped Back For A Lil Then Came Let Loose & Im Beamin! Its Ill That 1 Man(Or 2-Chad) Can Be Responsible For The Hardest Grimiest Dope Dealin Song(Grinding) And Like The Most Plush Top Shelf R&B Joint(There She Goes). Pharrell Is A Beast Musically! What Really Resonates With Me Are His Inspirational Classics(Twista-Lavish,Jadakiss-Lil Brah, & His You Can Do It Too & How Does It Feel! As An Aspiring Rapper I Would Love To Work With Him One Day! Also I’m A Big Daft Punk Buff Too, With the Success Of Get Lucky They Should Put Out Lose Yourself To Dance That’s Another 1! This Is Dope! But Pharell Put In Work To Achieve All This!

    his business acumen is crazy nice, you have to respect that… jay z being my favorite rapper all time I’ve been rocking with Pharrell/Neptunes since the mid-late 90′s. Him and Hov have had a lot of hits together with each of them as leading artist like “frontin” when P was the lead. They should do a whole album together similar to Timbaland on MCHG with a little outside help of course even though it wouldn’t be needed – American Gangster is another one where most of the production was done by Diddy & The Hitmen Production Team with some outside help (Pharrell had a couple joints on that album as well)
    so I guess I’m saying they need to do a full album together lmao
