Pharrell Says He’s Working on Something “Crazy” With Jay-Z

This year is lining up to be a busy one for Jay-Z. The rap star, who became a father in January, is possibly working on two projects: a solo effort, and a follow up to Watch The Thone, with Kanye West, of which Pharrell may be a part.

“We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Pharrell recently told MTV News. “You know, he’s very discreet about details and stuff. I’m just a film maker, musically, you know what I’m saying. I just let everybody else play the roles.”

Pharrell wouldn’t give any more details, but it’s clear that he’s been hard at work of late. Pictures have surfaced of him in the studio with everyone from Rick Ross to Meek Mill to Kendrick Lamar to ASAP Rocky to Mac Miller.

“Mac Miller deserves it,” P told MTV about the Pittsburgh MC’s success. “He’s working hard and he’s happy and very thankful, he’s a super humble kid. He deserves it. Another one of those kids with great work ethics. That’s what the game’s needed, and it’s sprouting up everywhere and it’s so awesome. He came down to Miami and was like, Yo, I wanna do something. So we went in and made two really good records.”

Though Pharrell and Jay have worked together extensively during their careers, the Viriginia hit-maker most recently contributed the production to “Glroy,” Hov’s tribute to his newborn, Blue Ivy Carter. —Adam Fleischer

    JAY-Z AINT BEEN HOTT SINCE THE BLACK ALBUM AND ALL BEFORE THAT BUT HIS NEW STUFF IS BETTER THEN MOST OF WHATS OUT THERE I MISS THAT BLACK ALBUM STYLE AND NAS ILLMATIC AND STILLMATIC TYPE HIPHOP

    • Really

      Really? Hmmm, funny you say that…you must have your head stuck up your ass, cause you haven’t seen the man selling out arenas world-wide, or on a slew of magazine covers, kickin’ it with Warren Buffet, opening businesses, all while having your moms jockin’ his dick. Totally irrelevant I’d say…

      P.S. …slap yourself.

        What does selling anything have to do with what homie just said… he’s absolutely right. Arena & record sales don’t make u the dopest. Jigga hasn’t made, & and never will make Black Album, Blueprint, Reasonable Doubt quality rap again… at the same time, Hov did his time & we can’t expect him to carry hip-hop any further. He & Nas are looking to pass the torch. Unfortunately, the game has changed so much… the cats that are carrying the torch now couldn’t hold a candle to these Rap legends!!!

    Well, the dude that was behind the Black Album is working with him again… I thought this duo would be like Dr. Dre and Snoop. Keep thinking that they’ll do an entire album together again but it never happens.
