According to recent reports, Pharrell is in the studio with one of his favorite artists. Rakim is said to be at work on a 2013 album. Iconic New York emcee Rakim has been performing his classic album recorded with former partner Eric B., Paid In Full extensively in recent years. Ra has performed the 1986 4th & Broadway release alone as well as with The Roots since 2010, and made a stop with Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh earlier this month in Detroit, Michigan.
There, Rakim spoke with The Detroit Free Press. The newspaper reports that presently Rakim is in the studio with Pharrell, and plans to release a single before the end of the year. “Rakim is working on new material with Pharrell Williams and hopes to have a single out by the end of the year, with an album to follow in 2013. But Saturday’s show is about celebrating “Paid in Full” and its lasting impact. “I definitely want to showcase that album, as a tribute to that the fans that love it,” he says. “Hopefully we can kind of rebuild that energy we had back then and bring it back.”
Despite the twitter comedy with Miley Cyrus and Tyler, The Creator after her new hair cut, they hit the studio together with Pharrell last night but there are no words of a collaboration but still, that would be a nice combo right there. “You can’t deny what @Pharrell and I have together. #LOVE=MAGIC #bigbrother4life,” Cyrus tweeted on Saturday (Oct. 27) after spending some time recording new tracks.
So what happened was that Miley Cyrus got a kind of crazy new haircut months ago, that found her basically chopping off most of her hair. Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator must have seen some of the photographs that same day, because he sent out some tweets about it like, “She Was Like ‘Hey, i Wanna Do Something Different…..Fuck Me Up Real Quick.’” Lol.
Kendrick Lamar talked with The Shadow League about the making of his debut album ‘Good Kid, Maad City’ and how the former N*E*R*D tune ‘Good Kid’ came about. Ali: Pharrell was in L.A. and he played the beat already with the hook on it. When Kendrick heard it, he was going through some shit and he told Pharell, he needed it right then and there.

Pharrell: “Kendrick Lamar Is The Black Bob Dylan”
Posted: October 24th.
Complex Magazine spoke with a handful of folks involved with creating Kendrick’s good kid m.A.A.d. city project which is out now. In this specific excerpt, Pharrell speaks on the brilliance of Kendrick Lamar and what he’s bringing to the culture. Williams breaks down his contributions on his track “good kid” “Kendrick is the black Bob Dylan. He’s the most phenomenal MC and his album will completely change the direction of hip-hop. It’s the most poetic, honest shit. He’s giving us rap songs full of hope.
On ‘good kid’ he talks about how he didn’t let the craziness going on around him change him. He’s speaking of a Compton that’s very different from the one Dre and Snoop blessed us with. He’s giving us a new perspective on a world most people don’t even know about. His approach to music proves how much of a rebel he is for his art. This guy doesn’t care what’s going on with radio—he approached his album the same way Adele and Frank Ocean did. Those kinds of artists only care about making music that’s true to who they are. I could not be more honored to be a part of his album. It’s the return of the backpackers for a whole new audience.”
