Snoop Dogg Talks Pharrell & ‘Bush’
The Neptunes sat down with Dynamic Producer to answer questions from aspiring music producers back in 2004, check it out.
By Justin Hunte. HipHopDX was on hand for Snoop Dogg’s preview of his album with Pharrell, “Bush.” Here’s the skinny on Snoop Dogg’s 13th studio album, Bush: It’s 10 tracks, just over 30 minutes in length, and entirely produced by Pharrell. The album features guest appearances from Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson, Gwen Stefani, T.I., Rick Ross, and Kendrick Lamar and includes so few instances of profanity that it’s debatable whether the project will receive a Parental Advisory sticker.
“We’ll get one for Kendrick,” Snoop says during a private listening session held in Los Angeles last week (April 23). “Kendrick couldn’t hold it back.” Minus lines like K.Dot’s gem “There’s a trophy in that pussy and I’m gonna cum in first place” off album closer, “I’m Yo Dog” (also featuring Rick Ross), Bush is essentially built for all ages.
After his flirtation with Rastafaria, Snoop Dogg is back in his biggest ever collaboration with Pharrell. He talks to Luke Bainbridge about convincing Stevie Wonder and Kendrick Lamar on to his record, prize swedes and why he could never be a politician. It’s pretty unusual to smell someone’s presence before you see them, before you’re even in the same room. But with Snoop Dogg you’d almost feel cheated if you didn’t.
Sure enough, before I even enter the London studio where I’m meeting him, the pungent aroma of weed is in the air. When he unfolds himself from the chair, his 6ft 4in height is accentuated by how skinny he is. He looks trim and remarkably good for 43, the only telltale signs that the Dogg is no longer the renegade wee pup being the odd thread of grey worming its way into his tight braids. Even they are hard to spot unless you’re up close.
Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine to Apple for Earth Day. The Neptunes hitmaker paid a visit to Cupertino, Calif and performed a mini-concert for employees as part of Apple’s Earth Day Beer Bash. Apple CEO Tim Cook, former Vice President Al Gore, and other Apple executives were seen dancing in the crowd as Pharrell performed his upbeat hits including “Happy” and “Come Get It Bae.” He gave a special shout-out to Cook, Gore, and Jimmy Iovine from the stage.

Does his appearance in Cupertino mean Pharrell is officially on board to partner with Apple’s foray into streaming? As previously reported, he is among the artists who are in talks to be involved in the forthcoming Beats Music relaunch, expected in June. He also already has an Apple Watch, which doesn’t even hit stores until tomorrow (April 24), so we know he’s a fan of the company. Here’s a quick video of him performing for band crew.
Unable to make the trip to NYC for the Tribeca Film Festival special screening, Williams participated in the post-screening Q&A via Skype, recalling how, after seeing the original and much smaller concept for the project, he told JR to “reach for the stars” and expand Les Bosquets into a fully fledged short film.
