Here is the Instrumental and the Cover to the single.
Updated: April 29th
Here is Game’s official first single of The R.E.D. Album, This is what i’m talking about, this is why I love The Neptunes so much, a Groovy summer feelin’ tune with Justin Timberlake & Pharrell singin’ in Stevie Wonder style with the old school Neptunes keys and that super Mario beat… sickening, Pharrell plays way too much Super Mario these days lol. I was waitin for a Bridge tho or at least a break beat at the end without the keys, I can see this having a heavy radio rotation, such a dopeass tune. “The vibe changed and it went to where I could see Grammy Awards,” Game told Rap-Up back in December. “I never thought in my life that I would ever work with Justin, and then for it to turn out and be as catastrophic as it was was amazing.”
Lupe Fiasco was on Sirius where he revealed that All City Chest Club (Asher Roth, B.o.B, The Cool Kids, Charles Hamilton, Blu, Diggy, J. Cole, Wale & Lupe Fiasco) will be featured on the ‘I’m Beaming Remix’, can’t wait to hear that one now!
Here is another Tasha/The Neptunes tune from her her debut album, which was supposed to come out back in 2007, great R&B, lovin’ the beatswitch. You’ll find the MP3 in the forum.

Pharrell Williams: “For my label, I used camouflage. I don’t like the idea that camouflage is always linked to war, its intended for disguise and that’s why I chose it. I incorporated all kinds of little images and animals inspired by the rainforest into my label, and threw in the iconic BBC/Icecream logo… you can find a digital spacesuit helmet on the front of the label as well.”
The earth-loving label has revealed stunning shots taken by photographer David LaChapelle that feature actress Julianne Moore, artist Jeff Koons, pro-surfer Malia Jones and musician Pharrell Williams in portraits that meld the epitome of eco-chic with raw urban sex appeal. We’re loving how Moore’s zippered red biker jacket sets off her fierce red Bridget Bardot-like tumble of locks – while Jones’s smoky moss green eyes and rock-toned abs and biceps have us more than just a little jealous.
Eco Consciousness doesn’t start and end with the month of April. It should always be a continuous, proactive effort. Beauty brand Kiehl’s is one of those who actively participates in helping make the world a better place to live in. This time, it has picked the Rainforest Alliance as its beneficiary, with 100 percent of the net proceeds from its selected product donated to this institution. Kiehls’ generous commitment to donate up to $200,000 from the sale of its Limited Edition “Açaí Damage-Protecting Toner” will help the Rainforest Alliance to bring sustainable forestry, agriculture, and tourism practices to communities around the globe. We thank Kiehl’s for its generosity and commend the company for demonstrating a real, rigorous commitment to the stewardship of our planet,” shares Tensie Whelan, president, the Rainforest Alliance.
The group of diverse celebrities each personally designed and drew labels to grace the limited edition bottles of 100% organic Açai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, which will raise funds for the Rainforest Alliance – a non-profit that protects rainforests by teaching businesses and individuals how to keep sustainable practices. One hundred percent of Kiehl’s net profits up to $200,000 will benefit the organization. You can get your fix in Kiehl’s stores this month, or by purchasing online.
Once again, one of the Forum members Jesse Zav’s got the chance to meet N.E.R.D. backstage at the M.I.T. University on Friday April 23rd where Pharrell revealed to him that “Hoppin’ Over Fences’ will get a release on the DVD later this year (I Know its more than 8 months since that the skater movie with the anthem was in the Cinema) anyways this has to be the best review of a fan by meeting N.E.R.D. backstage, very inspiring Jesse, very nice done, that was an awesome read, here check it for yourself.
Jesse’s Concert Experience
“Hello everyone, I went to the N.E.R.D. concert at M.I.T. University on Friday April 23rd 2010 and I had the best time ever. I got to go backstage and meet nerd. I type this summary because I am a many year followed fan of Star Trak Neptunes and this weekend has finally completed my love for Star Trak and I was not dissapointed it was everything I could have ever imagined. Now if anyone cares here is my experience.
Here is finally the video to Lupe’s first single of Lasers, I’m Beamin’ directed by Illusivemedia, it’s good to see that they actually used the first version of the song for the video shot.
Lupe Fiasco – I’m Beamin’
According to the bbc blog, Shae has been working with these guys on a project, there are also rumours that they also will have a guest appearance on N.E.R.D.’s new album ‘Nothing‘, check out their latest video, directed by Illusivemedia.
Mansions On The Moon – She Makes Me Feel
This is the first time I’ve heard a tune of Star Trak’s Girl Group Affair that was planned back in 2007 to release an album under Star Trak but It didn’t work out and got shelved afterwards. Check out the tune below, when a picture of each singer is on, it means they’re singing that part. Natasha is 1st, Vanessa is 2nd and then Tiffany riffs at the end, thanks to uluvtasharamos.
Affair – Runnin’ Back
It looks like Love Letter To The Beat is Alicia Keys‘ leftover from her 2007 album ‘As I Am‘ but the first version didn’t have Lupe on the tune, so it might be Lupe’s tune now, time will tell, oh and yeah I think The Neptunes produced the Horn Synth tune and not just Pharrell because Lupe said months ago that there will be Two Neptunes tracks on the album so Horn Synth is prolly the second one.

This is the First version of N.E.R.D.’s ‘Soldier tune featuring Fam-Lay with a rap verse and Lil’ Wayne on the vocals, although Lil’ Wayne had also a rap verse when they’ve been performing this tune back in 2008. If you asking me, I prefer the OST Final version, a pretty dope skater tune, thanks to bbckid521.
Check out this hilarious performance by Brett Domino redoing JT’s greatest hits such as ‘Like I Love You” with his own instruments(Cow Bell Fellas), just brilliant.
According to Alyssa Bernal’s & Brent Pasche’s (From SpyMob) Twitter, there are about to work together, probably for her new album.
“@brentpaschke Gonna be fun working with you again! We’re all very excited 😀 See you at 5! In San Antonio to work with @alyssabernal.”
Big Sean has been Interviewed recently by Complex Magazine where he talked about how he met up with Pharrell back in 2007 in Japan with Nigo & Company.
Complex: On the UKNOWBIGSEAN mixtape, Pharrell talked about how you were pretty timid in the studio before you guys got acquainted, but impressed him with your presence on the track. Are people pleasantly surprised when they meet you?
Big Sean: I’m really the most humble, nice person. [Laughs.] My grandma always told me, “Boy, you better act right, because just as fast as you get something, you can lose it twice as fast.” Plus, nobody likes a fucking asshole. That’s the worst shit ever. The boastfulness on my raps is just confidence, it’s not necessarily asshole-ish, I’m not trying to be…well,
I feel like you should be confident in whatever you do, and a lot of my new music [that’s coming out] I want people to judge more so than the music I’ve put out recently, because I feel like it’s really changed a lot. I just always stay honest with myself. All my stuff isn’t boastful, but some of it is. But that’s just the music, the art. When Kobe go on the court, he’ll talk all the shit he want, but when he’s in person, he may be a nice guy, you know?
Complex: Definitely. Speaking a bit more on Pharrell, I remember you had some YouTube videos out of you in the studio with P, and how a friend of yours named his kid after the super producer.
Big Sean: Oh yeah, my boy A-Dub named his son after him.
Complex: That’s a pretty huge statement.
Big Sean: Yeah, definitely.
Complex: Were you a fan of P’s production before you got in the studio with him?
Big Sean: Oh hell yeah! The thing was, I met Pharrell when we were in Japan. Kanye took me to Japan with him right when I signed to Def Jam for the Bathing Ape World Tour that they do over there, so it was N*E*R*D, Kanye, Teriyaki Boyz, Nigo, those guys. I absolutely love BAPE and BBC, so I was excited. I never met Pharrell, Nigo, or none of those guys. So I remember the first time I met them, and I was nervous. P didn’t know who I was at all, but he was like, “What’s up, what’s good,” and the next day after the first show, there was a BAPE photo shoot for their lookbook. Kanye was talking to Nigo and was like “Man, you should let my new artist Big Sean take some pictures.” Nigo heard some of my music because Kanye started playing some of my music, and he was like, “Yeah, I fuck with it. Let’s do it,” so I was in the BAPE lookbook. Pharrell was there too, and Pharrell was talking to Kanye like “Man, who is that kid, what’s up with him?” [Laughs.] Kanye was like, “Aww, nigga, he a BEAST!” He was like, “Aight, Nigo, Teriyaki Boyz, come here. Everybody come in the huddle!” I was like, “What the fuck is he doing?” He’s like, “Spit that shit! Don’t spit no wack shit!” [Laughs.] So I spit my heart out. Pharrell was really into it, and then he started listening to the music because we were playing it there, and he was like, “Man, I wanna work with you on your album! Let me get down with you.” I used to ride to school listening to these guys, so it’s a dream come true.
This is actually a 4 year old tune that just now leaked, which was supposed to be on Natasha Ramos’ debut album back in 2007, but the album has been shelved and the tune went to Ashanti for her 2008 ‘Declaration’ album, but as we all know, that tune didn’t make the final cut, produced by The Neptunes. Ashanti: “The Decoration, Sence of Freedom, a Sence of just being powered growing up Strength courage, all that good stuff – that’s what the song is about. I was in Miami recording with Pharrell and he told me Robin was in town, he had a show tonite, maybe he’ll stop by, he came by, he was really really cool and the song was playing everyone was dancing, he came up with the melody and Bang”
