Pusha T. Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs


Complex.com have spent the last few weeks tirelessly talking to Push, trying to get his thoughts on everything from rolling with G.O.O.D. Music, to what they thought about Consequence accusing him of biting lyrics, and squashing his beef with Lil’ Wayne. But when it comes to Pusha (and by extension, Clipse) the most important thing has always been the music. An intricate lyricist with a vicious delivery, Pusha’s verses are something special. That’s why Complex.com just had to get him to break down all of his classic records. They even managed to get the true story behind his verse on We Got It For Cheap Vol. 2’s “Hate It Or Love It,” how most of the beats on Hell Hath No Fury were meant for Jay-Z, and how HHNF is better than Purple Rain.

Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Still Here’ Is A Former Jamie Foxx Tune


I remember reading this article on MTV.com back in 2005 when Jamie Foxx was working on his second studio album Unpredictable (2005) and where he told MTV that he worked with The Neptunes on the track ‘I’m Still Here’ which at the end didn’t make the final cut. Well, that tune went two years later on Nicole Scherzinger’s debut album Her Name Is Nicole (2007) which also didn’t make the final cut, nonetheless I’m glad we’ve finally got to hear it. Thanks to darrenlaking & mkc007. Foxx also sang the praises of the Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams, who produced a track called “I’m Still Here.” “Pharrell gave me a hot nugget, like that one [song] on the album that you’re always gonna hit repeat and go back to,” the actor said.”

Ty Fyffe Clarifies Wreckx-N-Effect ‘Rumpshaker’ Production Credits


The New York veteran producer dispels a lot of rumors that The Neptunes’ Pharrell made a ‘92 hit, though Fyffe says Skateboard P did write Teddy Riley’s raps. A Top 10 single in 1992 was Wreckx-N-Effect’s “Rumpshaker.” The Teddy Riley-helmed sophomore album for the group, Hard Or Smooth would be a career launching pad for the likes of N*E*R*D/The Neptunes Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, as well as “Murder Inc.” producer Ty Fyffe. With “Rumpshaker’s” extensive writing and production credits, Fyffe recently spoke with Grind Music-Radio about who contributed what to the song, and how he and Teddy are the only actual producers.

Noting that “Rump Shaker” and Hard Or Smooth were his first credits, Ty said, “Me and [Teddy Riley] are the only producers that did that song. A lot of people got credit…shouts out to Pharrell; he was down with the camp back in the day. But he really didn’t produce ‘Rumpshaker‘ – no disrespect, Pharrell’s a genius. I love Pharrell’s music. But he only wrote Ted’s rap.” Fyffe also revealed that the songs credit and royalties may also go to Riley’s family members, not actually responsible for the song.

Fyffe said, “We’re not even really gonna get into that,” so as he did not expound. The song also features several samples, “Me and Ted took the [components] apart, and basically did it from scratch.” Ty Fyffe recently produced on Snoop Dogg’s Malice N’ Wonderland, 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct and Busta Rhymes’ Back On My B.S. He runs the popular producer’s website, TyFyffe.com. Thanks to darrenlaking.

Pharrell Speaks About The Japan Disaster


We are devastated by all that is happening to Japan.
Such history and beautiful culture illuminates this land.
Despite the impact and, I’m told, it’s continuous aftershocks the people have remained strong.
Though hurt and saddened the glow of the land can still be seen in those endangering themselves for clean up and restoration.
Tokyo, not far from the disaster, is actually a favorite city of mine that continues to inspire us all.
God’s speed to the country, it’s people, my friends and tranquility.

*honeyee.com/pharrell


Have yall freakin seen the news … As the death toll in Japan continues to mount in the wake of last week’s deadly tsunami, Japanese officials are dealing with the economic aftershocks as well as a growing nuclear crisis. All my prayers and condolences to the victims… i just hope their expert engineer’s will stand up to the NUCLEAR PLANTS…

How You Can Help Japan’s Earthquake, Tsunami Relief Efforts
Right before 3 p.m. Friday (March 11), Japan was hit by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake–it’s largest quake in at least 100 years–followed by massive tsunamis striking its coastal cities. Hundreds were killed and thousands have been displaced. The nation is in dire need of international support. Here’s how you can help:

Donate To The Red Cross
They have relief stations located across the country that will assist with citizen evacuation and medical needs.

Help Find Loved Ones

From the Red Cross:Inquiries concerning U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan should be referred to the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services at 1-888-407-4747 or 202-647-5225.

Stay Informed & Spread The Word
The Hawaii Red Cross is tweeting national announcements from Japan and instructions on how to find U.S. citizens in the area. You can also use the hashtag #hitsunami to request help or keep others informed on how to help. DoSomething.org iss asking anyone who can’t donate to fold and upload a picture of a paper crane to show your support for those affected by this disaster.

Most disaster relief organizations are advising against sending care packages, food or clothing to the area at this time. Your $5 or $10 will go a much longer way. You can find additional donation options on Network For Good.
