Snoop Dogg Talks Pharrell & ‘Bush’
The Neptunes sat down with Dynamic Producer to answer questions from aspiring music producers back in 2004, check it out.
By Justin Hunte. HipHopDX was on hand for Snoop Dogg’s preview of his album with Pharrell, “Bush.” Here’s the skinny on Snoop Dogg’s 13th studio album, Bush: It’s 10 tracks, just over 30 minutes in length, and entirely produced by Pharrell. The album features guest appearances from Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson, Gwen Stefani, T.I., Rick Ross, and Kendrick Lamar and includes so few instances of profanity that it’s debatable whether the project will receive a Parental Advisory sticker.
“We’ll get one for Kendrick,” Snoop says during a private listening session held in Los Angeles last week (April 23). “Kendrick couldn’t hold it back.” Minus lines like K.Dot’s gem “There’s a trophy in that pussy and I’m gonna cum in first place” off album closer, “I’m Yo Dog” (also featuring Rick Ross), Bush is essentially built for all ages.
After his flirtation with Rastafaria, Snoop Dogg is back in his biggest ever collaboration with Pharrell. He talks to Luke Bainbridge about convincing Stevie Wonder and Kendrick Lamar on to his record, prize swedes and why he could never be a politician. It’s pretty unusual to smell someone’s presence before you see them, before you’re even in the same room. But with Snoop Dogg you’d almost feel cheated if you didn’t.
Sure enough, before I even enter the London studio where I’m meeting him, the pungent aroma of weed is in the air. When he unfolds himself from the chair, his 6ft 4in height is accentuated by how skinny he is. He looks trim and remarkably good for 43, the only telltale signs that the Dogg is no longer the renegade wee pup being the odd thread of grey worming its way into his tight braids. Even they are hard to spot unless you’re up close.
Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine to Apple for Earth Day. The Neptunes hitmaker paid a visit to Cupertino, Calif and performed a mini-concert for employees as part of Apple’s Earth Day Beer Bash. Apple CEO Tim Cook, former Vice President Al Gore, and other Apple executives were seen dancing in the crowd as Pharrell performed his upbeat hits including “Happy” and “Come Get It Bae.” He gave a special shout-out to Cook, Gore, and Jimmy Iovine from the stage.

Does his appearance in Cupertino mean Pharrell is officially on board to partner with Apple’s foray into streaming? As previously reported, he is among the artists who are in talks to be involved in the forthcoming Beats Music relaunch, expected in June. He also already has an Apple Watch, which doesn’t even hit stores until tomorrow (April 24), so we know he’s a fan of the company. Here’s a quick video of him performing for band crew.
Unable to make the trip to NYC for the Tribeca Film Festival special screening, Williams participated in the post-screening Q&A via Skype, recalling how, after seeing the original and much smaller concept for the project, he told JR to “reach for the stars” and expand Les Bosquets into a fully fledged short film.
The three-hour event will raise money for children living in poverty. NBC announced that it will air “Red Nose Day,” a live three-hour event to raise money for children living in poverty in both the U.S. and abroad. The event will feature a number of A-list celebrities, videos produced by comedy site Funny Or Die and musical performances from some of today’s biggest artists.
Celebrities slated to appear include: Will Ferrell; Jennifer Hudson; Jack Black; John Krasinski; Emily Blunt; Michelle Rodriguez and Gwyneth Paltrow. In addition, the following musicians will appear at the event: Sam Smith; John Legend and “Voice” coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams.
In 2013, Pusha T. said he would deliver the best hip-hop album the year — and to many fans he made good on his promise with My Name Is My Name. However, with the two year mark approaching this year, Pyrex says he’s back to do it again. “I’m a give you hip-hop album of the year, again,” brags Pusha with a cocky smile. The album, titled King Push, does already have one fan.
“[A$AP] Rocky is the only person I played my album for,” Pusha T. tells VIBE about linking with his friend in London. “He was very high [Laughs].” For now, Pusha was only willing to talk about the producers on the album, but promises that we’ll be hearing some new music very soon. “It’s a very focused session,” Pusha describes about his time spent in the studio with Diddy, The Neptunes and Kanye West.

Snoop Dogg just dropped his second single from his upcoming collaborative album wth Pharrell titled ‘Bush’, and the first thing you notice on the tune is, CHAD HUGO worked on the tune also and is credited as co-produced, and it’s safe to tag it as ‘Produced By The Neptunes’. The Timbaland Fans should recognize this tune as ‘Been It’.
Which was planned to drop as Timbaland’s first single to his scrapped ‘Shock Value 3’ album that was supposed to drop back in 2013, and they even shot the video for it, but it didn’t make the final cut. The first version features also Justin Timberlake on the tune, but the final version has Charlie Wilson and Pharrell on the vocals, check out the Official Video above directed by Francois Rousselet.
