Kendrick Lamar Talks Pharrell (June 26th)

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Kendrick Lamar has been interviewed by Theboombox.com where he revealed that Pharrell “has the sound that Lamar envisioned” for Kendricks debut album. “Definitely Q-Tip. And Pharrell [Williams]. Them two, as far as major producers that I’ve worked with. Q-Tip because he got that sound of the early ’90s that I love. I’m just a fan of his work, period. The Renaissance album is probably one of my favorite albums. His whole abstract sound is kinda the vibe of where I was going as far as my production.

Pharrell, as far as the melodic notes and the vibe. I played him a few records before I got in [with him] and he’s like, “It’s already there. What you want to add onto it?” Other than that, I kept everything real in-house and tight-knit with the people I started off with from my earliest mixtapes. Soundwave… Willie B… Everybody who know my music know that they a part of my actual sound as far as the mixing and vocal production.” Thanks to menamearenick.

Pharrell, JD & Leah LaBelle Visit BET 106&Park (Update)


Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri stopped by “106 & Park” on Friday to introduce their new artist Leah LaBelle. The Seattle songstress, who Pharrell discovered on YouTube, dished about her street chic look, sweet talking her way into an N*E*R*D show to meet The Neptunes hitmaker, and her 16 tattoos. She also dropped off the video for her debut single “Sexify.” “We wrote it based on Cosmopolitan cover titles, so it’s very girl-friendly, fun,” explained Leah. “The video’s a day in the life of a girl getting ready for a night out with your boy, your girls, or yourself.” Justin Bieber even made a surprise appearance, offering some advice to Leah. “Make sure to keep family and friends really close to you because at the end of the day, those are the people that are gonna keep you grounded,” he said.

Pharrell Wanted To Sign Conor Maynard

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Jade Wright. Conor Maynard made his name online with captivating cover versions of Usher, Drake and the Kings Of Leon. Now counting 90 million combined YouTube views, nearly 300,000 Twitter followers and 400,000 Facebook likes, Conor was also the winner of MTV’s fan-voted Brand New for 2012. The 19-year-old followed that award with the announcement of another prestigious gong, the TAG Newcomer Award of 2012 at the Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards.

So it’s no wonder that both Ne-Yo and Pharrell Williams showed interest in signing the Brighton teen and have worked with him on his stunning debut album, Contrast. N*E*R*D producer Pharrell had been following the young singer for a number of years. “When he first called, he was trying to sign me,” says Conor. “He’d been watching my progress on YouTube over the last few years and said that he really believed in me.” While Conor was already signed by the time he called, he requested the chance to work with the rising star and invited the teen to Miami for a week.

“I saw more famous people then than I have in my whole life,” he laughs. Ludacris was in the studio, Tyler, The Creator, Lil’ Wayne…” Conor remembers of their session earlier this year: “It was an incredible time and I can’t believe I got to work with Pharrell on my first album. He said that he thinks I’m going to change the future of pop music. That was a big line from the Pharrell-meister.”

Pusha T. Calls Lil’ Wayne’s ‘Goulish’ ‘Trash’, Denies ‘Exodus’ Being A Lil’ Wayne Diss

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Pusha T says he wasn’t impressed by Lil Wayne’s response record to his cut “Exodus 23:1.” Pusha T stopped by Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show earlier this evening to touch on several topics, confirming another Clipse album will be released and stating that he was surprised by Young Money’s camaraderie following the Summer Jam fiasco. But at the onset of the conversation, the Virginia native revealed that the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer, will release on August 7th. “August 7th. G.O.O.D. Music compilation coming August 7th,” he confirmed. Pusha Ton also touched on Lil Wayne’s record “Goulish,” which served as a response to his alleged Drake diss on “Exodus 23:1.”

He explained why he was surprised that Weezy was the one to step in and respond to the cut. “I was surprised actually at the whole… anybody, but Wayne specifically, answering ‘Exodus.’ I’ve never seen one record that didn’t say any names cause so much of a firestorm,” he stated. He also denied that the record was about anyone in Young Money“Why would that relate to Wayne or Drake?” he said” but was quick to brand “Goulish” as “trash.” “It was horrible. It was trash. It wasn’t good,” he said, stating that he also wasn’t feeling the beat. “I didn’t like that either. Let me say this. I didn’t like it for that type of record. I didn’t feel like, in all honesty, I haven’t said anything about it because I didn’t think it was good enough to respond to.”
