Jadakiss, who’s about 8-9 tracks deep into his new album with a possible release date in late May, recently aired out his feelings on a few subjects including the possibility of getting The Neptunes on his new album. “…I still gotta holla at Kanye, Just Blaze, maybe Pharrell, hopefully Dr. Dre, DJ Toomp. Whoever got the f*cking heat man, Timbaland, Storch. I don’t discriminate. If it’s hot, let’s have it.” On the possible Kiss My Ass title of his new album: “Nas is dropping N*gger, why I can’t drop Kiss My Ass? I think I might keep my sh*t. Kiss My Ass coming soon.”
“…Initially, there weren’t supposed to be any guest artists on Ego Trippin’. It just happened. That might be me Ego Trippin’ . The real Ego Trippin’ on this record is that I let people write songs for me. “Sensual Seduction” took people by surprise. There was no strategy. My boy Shawty Redd wrote the song, and once I sent it back, he started playing it in the clubs in Atlanta. He’s like, “This muthaf*cka is a big record.” When I played it for my peoples, they didn’t feel it at first not my immediate people, my record-label people. They were like, “Eh.” I was like, “F*ck what y’all talking about, I’m putting this shit out. This is some fly shit. It’s my career, anyway.”
Despite recent reviews and reports, Snoop has confirmed that The Neptunes ARE going to be on his new album. Snoop Dogg stopped by to fill us in on who else might be on the record. “…Skateboard P you know he on the album, I couldn’t miss him. I just like keeping certain things under wrap, that’s a gimme. Pharrell’s always going to be apart of my records it’s just because he’s so passionate about Snoop Dogg…” Snoop’s Ego Trippin’ is scheduled to drop March 11th.

It’s been a while since the whole gang has been together with Pharrell Williams’ successful solo career, but as expected, Williams, Chad Hugo & Shay Haley return with fire. It isn’t a very different sound that what we’re used to from the she wants to move hit makers, but i feel that that’s better than not. A definite body mover, “Everyone Nose” is a call out to “All The Girls Standing In The Line For The Bathroom” in the club, with a chorus that leads one to believe Williams is really rapping about cocaine use!
Pharrell, who was given the much-less-dubious honor of being named InStyle’s “Man Of Style.” has two clothing lines in the bag and a jewelry line forthcoming, the mag asked him to spill his style secrets for the latest issue. Pharrell described his clothing lines, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, as “basically everything I ever wanted as a kid but couldn’t afford and if I could have afforded it, no one was making it.” He started out wearing Vans and Vision Streetwear, but an admiration of Rakim led him to Dapper Dan threads and gold chains. Though Pharrell had his own gold-chains phase, he insists he’s “more subtle” now, and counts George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Robert Redford among those he admires.
The frontman of Public Enemy Flava Flav & Pharrell Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back, which they will be performing at Brixton Academy on Friday, May 23. Williams will be performing with N¤E¤R¤D with new material from their new album “N*3*R*D” a few weeks later, on Saturday, June 14.
“…Not to say that I don’t still have ‘Oh shit!’ moments. Like, Pharrell played me a bit of the new N¤E¤R¤D record, and you definitely know that he wants to come back with a vengeance. Like, I think Pharrell got something in his soul that’s just saying, “I can’t rely on just my good looks and fashion sense. Muhfuckas are tryna count me out, and I got to not just come back, but really kick their ass.” I mean, the four or five songs I heard, it’s like, this dude is coming back like he got a score to settle. So hopefully, that will just start a domino theory on everybody else. Make everybody else step they game up
Busta Rhymes is working on a new album called “Back On My Bullsh*t” with Dr. Dre, Green Lantern, Timbaland, Cool & Dre, Danjahandz, Nottz & The Nepuntes, who provided the title for the album. “…I’m calling it “Back On My Bullsh*t” for two reasons. I said it on a new song and it stuck in Pharrell’s head. And because this album, in particular, feels like vintage Busta Rhymes, in a 2008 way. It was original and appropriately the right thing to call the project. No deep brain-science, nothing like that…” The Album is due Summer.

“…Actually Madonna is finished. Me and Timbaland did four or five songs together. Timbaland also did three more with a new producer, Hannon Lane, out of Virginia. Then Pharrell did the rest. So it’s like a Virginia-produced album. I’m actually kind of proud of that. Even though me, Timbaland and Pharrell didn’t work together, just for us to completely conquer an artist such as Madonna. I’m good. Either way, whether we got a single or Pharrell got a single, Virginia got a Madonna single…”
“…We haven’t got in. I really want to get in them just for the sake of Virginia. Pusha, pound-for-pound, a lot of people ain’t touching him with the spitting. I wanna do at least six or seven joints and make that album a classic like a Dre with a Snoop, or Primo with Big and Nas. There hasn’t been any more conversations recently, but we gonna make that happen for sure…”
