Their forthcoming album, titled 2008, features production from the likes of Pharrell Williams, T.H.C., and Terrace Martin, and is bound to make noise amongst feel-good rap fans, not only in the West Coast circuit, but all over the globe. A feature from Polo Grounds labelmate A$AP Ferg doesn’t do any harm in that regard either.
Their singles so far, like the Ferg-assisted cut “F**k Yo’ DJ,” their Pharrell-produced “Last Kiss,” and “Rich White Friends” display a rare lightheartedness that falls somewhere in between fun, ignorant rap, and just pure funk. As they delve into their upbringing, it begins to make sense how they act in such a fashion. From adventures at Miami’s K.O.D. to studio sessions with Skateboard P, OverDoz. certainly has some stories to back up their reputation as the wild bunch from the City of Angels.
Music’s biggest stars will be hitting the stage this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. The 2015 VMA performers have been announced, as Pharrell Williams, A$AP Rocky, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are on this year’s lineup. Pharrell will perform as a solo artist for the first-time at the VMAs, so will A$AP Rocky, who previously joined Rihanna on stage in 2012. Hosted by Miley Cyrus, the 2015 MTV VMAs takes place this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Forum Member and Admin of NERDskyRock Maxime Javel managed to fly to Los Angeles, and while being there, he stoped by I am OTHER and had the chance to meet his Idol Pharrell Williams in the studio. I remember a month ago, I had a conversation with Max how things are finally starting to work out day by day and we’ve been talking about the Grindin Project we’re working on and how we eventually gonna have a conversation with Pharrell some day.
A month later it’s just surreal what has happened a few days ago to Max. After meeting the whole I am OTHER crew, Pharrell came to say Hi while playing some crazy beats in the studio. This is truly a dream come true for every Neptunes Fan, after all these years and all the hard work Max has done together with Creatrice with NERDSkyRock Fan Page, it finally paid off. Congratulations from the whole Grindin/Neptunes Family Max, you truly deserved it!!
Apple launches its latest music venture through the Apple Music Festival, a bigger rebranded iTunes Festival that will be held this September at the Roundhouse in London. Some of the biggest names in the music industry to anticipate this time are One Direction, Pharrell, Florence + The Machines, and Disclosure. The entire show can be seen live and on-demand on Apple Music.
Fans will also have the chance to listen to Beats 1, Apple’s recently launched radio station. Apple will also show backstage news, as well as footage on Apple Music Connect. The rebranded Apple Music Festival will rock for 10 days from September 19 to 28, instead of the usual one-month long celebration. The rebrand is a move to promote Apple Music as Apple’s main music brand. iTunes and Beats are just its secondary music products. This strategy doesn’t come as a surprise, but it is fascinating to see Apple transition to streaming.
Now that’s some dope stuff right there!
Pharrell dishes on his first ever meeting with Jackson, and how his mind was blown when the legendary singer started making out with a hot woman right in front of him. Pharrell has revealed that Michael Jackson was a master of catching people off guard and the first time he met the King of Pop, he was stunned to find him kissing a beautiful Brazilian woman right in front of him!
“I met him two times,” Williams reveals on the show. “Talk about mind control, he was a genius! We get into the trailer, it’s a two story trailer, the trailer has stairs!” the 42-year-old musician says, laughing. “He comes in, he’s tall, standing there, two beautiful women walk in, he kisses one. It’s a moment!” Williams explains. “It ain’t like no peck, it’s a situation. [The women] look Brazilian, and I’m like, ‘Wow!’ He’s the king of catching you off guard.”

The drum and bass duo – Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie – spotted the 42-year-old musician backstage at Glastonbury Festival where they were both performing back in June and said while it was ”cool” to see him, they are convinced he must be an extra-terrestrial because of his ever-youthful appearance.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Joe said: ”I think Pharrell was on [stage] just after us so I didn’t get a chance to talk to him but to see him in person was quite a cool experience because he’s an alien. He’s looked the same for about 30 years, I don’t know how he does it!”
According to breatheheavy.com, Gwen Stefani will release a Maxi CD to her single ‘Baby Don’t Lie’ which will include a Bonus Racks produced by Pharrell from 2007. Gwen released only a few singles this year, including “Baby Don’t Lie,” and “Spark The Fire.” Both songs are alright, but they failed to really draw a crowd like most her music does. Instead, she plays it safe with Pharrell Williams on the latter, who she credits inspired her to get back into the studio, and nothing about Gwen Stefani in the past was safe.
Photos By Sean Costello & Rafael. Pharrell Williams invited young artists and students from the Los Angeles area to explore the idea of what it means to be a “Superstar.” On Staurday where Williams and Pusha T. Co-hosted the event. The theme of the evening was the idea of “creating for yourself” in which Pharrell chose Pusha T. as one of his hand-picked Original Superstars, which were featured in short videos Last Week.
And Forum Member Rafael and the admin of pharrellwilliams.br managed to meet and talk a little bit with Pharrell. While being very enthusiastic and passionate about finally meeting his idol, Rafael shares with us that he asked Pharrell about the “The Way She Dances” ending, where even Chad Hugo has a part in the song signing “I Think That’s Love”, how that Ending come about. Rafael: “I’ve been wanting to ask you this for more than a decade. Pharrell: Wow. R:“you know the The Way She Dances Ending?”, P: yes. R:“How did that come about?” P: well first of all, we wanted to shift the whole song into planet Neptune. Hence, the “on constellations line”; R:“Pharrell, it does fucking put you on constellations.” *bows* *star trak sign* “Pharrell does the same thing” and at the end of the conversation Rafael told him that someday, he’s going to be signed to i am Other!
Adidas invited guests to sketch their own Shell-Toe design. The brand posted photos to Instagram from the event. The “audience of one” idea is present throughout Adidas’ campaign that features Williams, Pusha T., Grigoriy Dobrygin, Smithe, VJ Mian, and Yoon. Adidas says each of these individuals are united in their commitment to creating for an audience of one — “the true calling card of a Superstar.” “Williams encouraged these young guests to reimagine the iconic Shell-Toe detail from an Adidas Originals Superstar, using it as a canvas for artistic expression, igniting their imaginations to create for an audience of one.”
