Why Pharrell Started N.E.R.D. [Video]

On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Pharrell spoke out about his entrance into the music business, why he started N.E.R.D. and voting. Plus, he promoted his new book, Places and Spaces I’ve Been, which he explained is not an autobiography.

“I tried to give people a collection of places that I’ve been,” he says. “Coming to New York, working with someone like Jay-Z, and the music that we’ve made—I wanted people to understand what it is that I absorb from him. Which is the spaces part. His mental space.”
