Pharrell Williams has called on his own personal mentor to lend a hand on the upcoming season of The Voice, and only ET was on set with Pharrell and Sean “Diddy” Combs, aka Puff Daddy, as they doled out advice to the latest crop of contenders. “Essentially, what it is that I do on the show is what he did for me,” Pharrell explains. “I came in the studio with Chad [Hugo, of The Neptunes], and we produced some records and he was the one that looked at me and said, ‘You gotta do more than be behind the keyboards. You gotta get in front of the keyboard, as well.'”

No Malice is taking his show on the road and showing his End Of Malice Documentary at theaters around the country. The Virginia native will also take part in a Q+A at the screeners. According to the documentary’s website, “The End of Malice is an intoxicating, first-person narrative from an extraordinary artist confronting the dualities of fame and family, success in the dope game, and the demanding world of mainstream music.
Told with revealing authenticity by Malice and insightful commentary by Pusha T and Pharrell Williams, this documentary transcends its subject matter and openly deals with subjects that have consumed mainstream culture.” End Of Malice will premiere on Revolt TV on March 27. Along with the film, a soundtrack will be released through iTunes sometime in the spring (there is no set release date as of press time.) Check out the dates and trailer below.
Missy Elliott is back with a brand new single titled ’Pep Rally’ produced by Pharrell Williams. Missy is preppin’ her new album completely produced by Pharrell and Timbaland and this is another example what the album will sound like. Missy Elliott has used the Super Bowl 50 occasion to drop ’Pep Rally’ that should get even the most casual of sports fans amped for the big game. ’Pep Rally’ is Missy‘s first release since her comeback record, the Pharrell-featuring “WTF,” which dropped in November.
The new track was shared without any warning or promotion and intends to prove that she’s only been heating up since. The beat is made up of typical game-day sounds — whistles along with marching band-style cymbals and horn — as well as a heavy bass that helps transform the track into a certified banger and watch the Super Bowl 50 Commercial at Alec Baldwin’s game day party with Missy Elliott and Co, check it out below and make sure to get the single on Amazon.

Oh This Sunday’s Beats 1 OTHERtone Radio Show, Chance The Rapper talks fatherhood and his 4-month-old daughter and expressed the impact that being a father has had on his work in the studio. “You can love somebody through anything when they’re your child and now that I understand that it makes me work better with people, it makes me more understanding of how much dedication and love I can put into each line. There’s no throwaway lines,” Chance said to Williams.
Williams is also a father to a 7-year-old son with wife, Helen Lasichanh, and he answered Chance’s statement with, “I’m gonna tell you, that is the best song that you will ever co-write in your life. When you think the melody can’t get any better, and you think the lyrical content can’t get any deeper and any sicker, the bars can’t be crazier, it happens all the time.”
The OTHERtone host further said, “God’s the board and she’s writing the lyrics. And she just rewrites over and over as she gets older, it’s one of the most amazing things ever. Hows that feeling.” To Williams‘ question, Chance expressed how amazing it is to watch his young daughter grow according to Billboard. In other Chance news, the rapper teamed up with Warmest Winter at the end of December in order to raise money that would produce coats for Chicago’s homeless, where the rapper was raised and got his start in the music industry.
Warmest Winter hires the homeless to work making coats for themselves and their fellow vagrants, and as stated on the site, “Our studies show that for each 1,000 coats that are distributed, we can save 14 lives.” Donating on the site also gives the user the opportunity to win tickets to a Chicago Bulls or White Sox game, and if you donate $100, you will be entered in a contest to win two tickets to a 2016 Chance show. Check out the show on iTunes.

Just a few weeks back, news emerged that Pharrell Williams had bought back his controlling stake in Billionaire Boys Club and ICECREAM, the labels he co-founded with NIGO back in 2005. It seems Skateboard P’s quest for world domination isn’t over yet, as it’s just been announced that the pop megastar is now a co-owner of Dutch denim label G-Star RAW.
The brand’s official press release states that Williams will co-own the brand, and his role will include overseeing the label’s collections, advertising and business strategy. ’’G-Star is an independently-minded and forward-thinking company. I believe they will be the definitive jeans brand of the 21st century. I am looking forward to be part of that mission and to co-create G-Star’s future.’’
The move follows two years of collaborations between the two partners, which included the “RAW For The Oceans” project, a collection of clothing crafted from recycled ocean plastic.

As expected, Pharrell Williams brought out plenty of special guests for his Friday night Super Bowl party at Pier 70: Bay Area fans. Just two days before kick-off, the Grammy Award-winning singer-rapper-producer and recent recipient of the NAACP’s Image Award for Outstanding Male Artist brought about a dozen fans on stage for two songs during his nearly two-hour set at the Pepsi-sponsored Super Bowl concert at the massive San Francisco venue.
Hand-picking each group from the crowd for back-to-back N*E*R*D hits — guys for “Lapdance” and the ladies for “She Wants To Move” — Williams kept fans, including NFL greats Deion Sanders and 49er legend Jerry Rice, engaged from start to finish. “Hey, San Francisco!” the singer greeted the throng of music lovers as he went into 2014’s clapper, “Come Get It Bae,” wearing a baseball cap, long white coat over a simple T-shirt and jeans ensemble, accented with bubble gum pink Adidas.
Pharrell Williams, Jill Scott and Empire’s Jussie Smollett claimed major wins at the 47th NAACP Image Awards‘ pre-show gala dinner last Thursday night. Held at the Pasadena Conference Center, the celebration feted winners in recorded music as well as 44 other categories. Pharrell won for Outstanding Male Artist, Tyrese Gibson for outstanding music video (“Shame”), Miles Davis for outstanding jazz album (Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4) and Tina Campbell for outstanding traditional/contemporary gospel album (It’s Personal).
The 47th NAACP Image Awards will announce the winners in its 10 remaining categories (2/5) during a two-hour live telecast on TV One (9 p.m. ET/PT tape-delayed). Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the ceremony will take place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
Virginia’s own Pharrell has came a long way from co-writing Wreckx-N-Effect’s 1992 hit “Rump Shaker.” Over time, the musical visionary has done more than simply produce some of music’s most futuristic sounding hit records. Pharrell has been able to inspire the artful mind through various endeavours such as visuals for the song “Freedom” and “Finna Get Loose” with Diddy.
He as also expressed his love for art and fashion with a visit to Takashi Murakami’s studio alongside collaborations with adidas and Timberland, which received recognition from Footwear News as ‘Collaboration Of The Year.’ Nonetheless, the seemingly ageless Pharrell doesn’t look to stop in his tracks anytime soon which raises the question of what’s next for the polymath.

How dope would be a KoRn x The Neptunes collaboration. Looks like Pharrell and KoRn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu (one of my Favourite Band after SOAD and N*E*R*D of cource) had the same flight last week where they took a Photo together, now check out my future wedding song below.
