Snoop Dogg Talks Pharrell & ‘Bush’
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.
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.

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.

Forum Member Tyler, The Creator just released his fourth studio album titled ‘Cherry Bomb’ with collaboration by Pharrell, Kanye West, Charlie Wilson, Lil’ Wayne, Kali Uchi, Schoolboy Q and Coco. O. Cherry Bomb is loaded into iTunes via Odd Future LLC. The 13-track Cherry Bomb is the follow-up to the Odd Future main-man’s April 2013 release Wolf, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. With Cherry Bomb, he wants bragging rights. Tyler wants a No. 1.
He said as much on his Twitter page. Tyler collaborated once again with his idol Pharrell Williams on the tune ‘Keep Da O’s’ that features also Coco O. Tyler joins a cadre of urban artists who’ve bypassed the traditional album release fanfare for a surprise-release strategy. Turns out, Tyler has been mulling over the shock-drop tactic for some years now. Only, Beyonce, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and even his Odd Future bandmate Earl Sweatshirt beat him to the punch. “I would love to do that,” he told Billboard in an interview published last October.
“I wanted to do that with my last album but I wasn’t able to. When Beyoncé did it, I was like “What the f—? That was my idea years ago! F— you!” I also managed to pitch it back to C dur, so you could hear Pharrell on the tune, check out all tunes below with his Official Video to ‘Fucking Young’, and make sure to cop Tyler’s album on iTunes.

On Monday night, keen-eyed viewers of The Voice in America noticed that coach Pharrell Williams was sporting Apple’s latest must-have item on his wrist, almost three weeks before anyone else can have it. It was a super subtle piece of PR from Cupertino, with Pharrell’s timepiece sitting on an already heavily decorated wrist.
Maroc Culture Association has announced on Friday the participation of American rapper and songwriter Pharrel Williams in the 14th edition of the Mawazine Rhytms of the World Festival. The singer and record producer will perform on Monday, May 30th, 2015 on the OLM Souissi stage in Rabat.

The film Les Bosquets brings the audience in a place where art and the power of image interweave. Based on the story of Ladj Ly and the performance of the ballet Les Bosquets of New York City Ballet (2014) inspired by the riots in the French suburbs in 2005, JR reveals its experience in the ghetto of Montfermeil where he created his first project, Portrait of a Generation.
This film is a continuation of this 10 years project, for which he uses various means of expression and narration : video archives, choreography and testimony. This short film will be presented exclusively in galleries and museum shows. Pharrell did the Music Score together with Hans Zimmer.
The festival has announced a list of 75 artists set to play, including performances from Mary J Blige, Florence & The Machine Alt-J, Pharrell Williams and Patti Smith, who will likely be playing tracks from her debut album Horses, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Other notable names on the list include a collaborative performance between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, a set by the Moody Blues – now into their sixth decade as a band – and the Mothership Returns, which will feature funk legend George Clinton, Parliament, Funkadelic and the Family Stone.
