Pusha T. Confirms Pharrell (The Neptunes) On ‘Darkest Before Dawn’, Due December 18th

1378138813 1fa033a79d7270c45bdce9d61265cce1By Natalie Weiner. Pusha T.’s been building hype for his sophomore solo album for most of 2015, which was, up until yesterday, going to be called King Push. During an interview with Noisey, though, the rapper explained that he had so much material he wanted to put out that he would be releasing two albums instead of one — King Push will be pushed (no pun intended) to the spring of 2016 to make room for the just-announced Darkest Before Dawn, which will drop Dec. 18.

“I’ve been recording so much — I didn’t want to break up that body of work,” the rapper told Noisey. “I feel like I had the producers doing things that they weren’t usually known for, a little out of their wheelhouse. I wanted to give the fans that body of work. That’s the music I love, and that’s the music that my fans love from me.

Instead of having those moments throughout King Push, let’s just separate the game.” Pusha confirmed that Darkest features collaborations with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, The-Dream, Jill Scott, Kehlani, and Beanie Sigel. It also features production from Kanye, Hudson Mohawke, Pharrell, Q-Tip, Timbaland, and Diddy.

Snoop Dogg – Bush (Six Neptunes Tracks) (2015), California Roll feat. Pharrell & Stevie Wonder (15’)

Js V4 NG8
So the Snoop Dogg Project ‘Bush’ is finally out, and features almost on every tune Pharrell and Charlie Wilson. And the much hyped tune of the album, the Stevie Wonder collaboration is finally out for us listeners to see what the whole buzz is all about and since the album leaked on the net, the i am OTHER team revealed that ‘California Roll’ will be the next single.

California Roll’ pretty much stands out of the whole album and is also a recycled beat from a previous Neptunes session. One of the most talked tune on the forum is ‘R U A Freak’ which should be also a single if you’re asking me, because it sounds pretty much like ‘Let’s Get Blown Part 2’, but my favourite tune on the album is ‘Run Away’ featuring Gwen Stefani,

And a big thanks to matty for giving us the Official Credits to the album, which has surprisingly Chad Hugo credited on 6 Tracks and is safe to say it’s produced by The Neptunes. If you’re wondering why they didn’t called it as produced by The Neptunes, it’s probably because of the promotion use of Pharrell’s name for this project. Check out all credits below Including Snoop Dogg’s next single ‘California Roll’ and make sure to cop the album on iTunes.

Advice From The Neptunes In 2004


The Neptunes sat down with Dynamic Producer to answer questions from aspiring music producers back in 2004, check it out.

Snoop Dogg – So Many Pros (Behind The Scenes) (2015)

Snoop Dogg – So Many Pros feat. Pharrell & Charlie Wilson (Official Video) (2015) (Produced By The Neptunes)

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.

The Neptunes Are Doing The Music For The New Spongebob Squarepants Movie

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Yes, you are reading right, The Neptunes are working on the new Spongebob Squarepants Movie which will be out next year on February 6th. Check out this article where they confirmed working on the project. “With “The Voice” still in production, Williams is poised to resume doing what he always does: helming a dizzying array of sessions.He’s committed to producing Snoop’s next album from top to bottom, and he and Hugo are making music for the upcoming “SpongeBob SquarePants” feature.

“We’re trying not to think too much in a cartoon sense,” Hugo says, “but more just like a psychedelic, otherworldy type of thing. If you want to draw a parallel, maybe think of what the Beatles did with ‘Yellow Submarine.’” His partnership with composer Hans Zimmer has already begun to yield impressive fruit and he still has a fashion line, a record label and a charity, From One Hand To Another, to keep him occupied.”

“There’s always a flow to human activity,” Williams says. “If you stare out at it long enough you can see where it’s going, but you don’t have to go where it goes, that’s the beauty of life. You can go wherever you want to go. As long as you’re armed with that information and remain curious, you can do some really interesting things.” Can’t wait to hear this!

How Pharrell Revived Snoop Dogg’s Career With ‘R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece’

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Julian Kimble. A decade after The Neptunes had us all mimicking the mouth clicks of “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” VIBE remembers the album that cemented the magical chemistry shared between Snoop and Skateboard P. Some artists and producers unite to form unstoppable forces.

Nas and DJ Premier had amazing chemistry during the ‘90s, yet successful sound. Then, of course, there’s the curious case of Kanye West and… himself. During the early 2000s, one such combination was forged, and it was like Stephen Curry at the free throw line: Automatic. That combination is Snoop Dogg and The Neptunes.

Fefe Dobson – In The Kissah (The Neptunes) (06′)

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Back in 2005, I was reading on Brent Paschke’s Myspace Page that he was working with the Canadian songwriter and recording artist Fefe Dobson on her Second Studio album, where he commented that he did the guitar on one of Chad and Pharrell’s production for Fefe Dobson. So, 3 years later, her album ‘Sunday Love’ leaked on the net without any information whether The Neptunes track made the cut or not, so I had to check it out myself to see if the tune made the cut.

Originally slated for release in 2005, the release date was pushed back a number of times by Island Records before its eventual cancellation. After checkin’ the album out, I thought the whole time, that The Neptunes track from the album was always ‘If I Was a Guy’, but thanks to Forum Member Skletch and Seven Years of waiting, Fefe Dobson’s album ‘Sunday Love’ officialy released digitally on the iTunes Store on December 18, 2012, with some new tunes which has The Neptunes track that Brent Paschke and The Neptunes worked on, which is called ‘In The Kissah’, you can check it out below.

N.O.R.E. Details Pharrell Bond, Says Michael Jackson Wanted ‘Super Thug’ Beat, Big Tigger Doubted The Neptunes

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Andres Tardio. Noreaga explains how his relationship with Pharrell Williams has remained strong since 1998’s “SuperThug,” despite doubters and naysayers trying to come between them. Pharrell may be one of the most acclaimed producers in the industry, but not everyone believed in the beatsmith when he emerged in the late 1990s as a member of The Neptunes.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
N.O.R.E., who’s had success with Pharrell since 1998’s “Super Thug,” which was produced by The Neptunes, was one of the producer’s early supporters. He enlisted The Neptunes for his self-titled debut solo album. Their “Super Thug” collaboration would become one of the year’s most popular Rap singles. The song also marked the first time that The Neptunes earned notoriety for its production, something Noreaga recalls with joy.

Eve – The Beat Is So Crazy feat. Pharrell & Madonna (The Neptunes) (07’)

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
So the tune features Madonna on the hook and Pharrell on the bridge and I remember reading about this tune years ago, when Eve said that she sang the first time in her life on a record and it’s produced by The Neptunes. Talking about the beat, it’s straight up from the Hard Candy era but It has that Kelis feel all over the tune., and I think the guitar at the very end is played by Madonna herself.

This tune has been recorded for Eve‘s ‘Here I Am’ album, but it has been crapped as we know. According to DrownedMadonna.com, originally, Madonna wrote and recorded The Beat Is So Crazy with Pharrell, but then she decided to sell it to Eve and did this sort of duet, check out the tune below, as well as the other Neptunes tune with Eve thanks to Marsguo.

Kid Sister Has The Neptunes On New Mixtape

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
There’s a reason Gossip Wolf has been repping for Chicago-bred singer and rapper Kid Sister since column number one in 2010—she rules the school! Now based in LA, she reached out to us on Twitter a few days ago with tidbits about her new album, which should drop in the next few days. (It’s a mixtape, her first since Fool’s Gold released Kiss Kiss Kiss in 2011.)

She wouldn’t tell us what it’s called or who’s putting it out, but she did say that she wrote her own string charts for a disco-fied track produced by The Neptunes. We can’t wait to hear that awesomeness for ourselves. She has been with The Neptunes in the studio back in August 1st, 2008, but it never made it on an official release.

“I’m recording with Pharrell, That is what dreams are made of. Pharrell fucking Williams. I mean, listen to his songs. I’m just working hard, I’m not rushing, but I always work hard, you know? For someone who does what I do, compared to my peers, I’m really anal. I’m really a perfectionist. Like, this shit better be right. I think it was because how I was raised—if you don’t do it right, don’t do it at all.” Stay tuned for more information, thanks to menamearenick.
