Source's Top 30 Power Players In Hip-Hop Culture
As one-half of super production team The Neptunes and the frontman of the Hip-Rock trio N.E.R.D., Virginia native Pharrell Williams is a man of many talents, and businesses. 2008 was a good year for the Star Trak label owner, who clocked in at #7 on Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings list at $20 million. Although Pharrell walked quietly through 2008 as a solo performer, it was still the year of the N.E.R.D. They dropped Seeing Sounds, alongside a Microsoft Zune commercial featuring the lead single “Spaz,” and toured extensively with Kanye West on the Glow in the Dark tour. On the political side and as official spokesmen for Rock the Vote, the trio became one of a few selected groups to perform at the Democratic National Convention. But Pha-real’s true power is in his ability to consistently widen the scope of Hip-Hop lifestyle, from his street skateboarding squad, the Ice Cream Skate Team, to continued production of his Billionaire Boys clothing and Ice Cream accessories lines with former A Bathing Ape designer Nigo. In 2008, Pharrell linked up again with Louis Vuitton to create the Blason jewelry collection, and his next collaboration is with artist Takashi Murakami for a series featuring precious gems from Jacob & Co.

  1. , Clark fearing the poclie are chasing him after he robbed the hotel and stopped for gas (where he got the sandwiches he mentioned shortly before discovering Aunt Edna’s death ) and the alternate ending would have been good to see, but no dice. No true special edition should be without a deleted scenes gallery!My final complaint is the fact that the original soundtrack was not restored. Unlike the theater and original VHS versions, The Pointer Sisters’ I’m So Excited was not present during the highway Ferrari scenes. Similar to the version now shown on cable and the first DVD, Little Boy Sweet replaces it. What makes that even more annoying is the fact that the end credits were NEVER changed. I’m So Excited is still listed as appearing in ALL cable and home video releases. That is almost like adding insult to injury. Why not restore the original soundtrack for the 20th anniversary?In summary, I give this DVD 3 stars, just middle ground. It’s an improvement over the first one, but definitely not all that it could be. Die-hard fans of the movie might want to pick it up, since there might not be any better releases for the 25th or any other anniversary. If your opinion is that you can take it or leave it, I would advise you to just pay a couple of bucks to rent it and save the rest of your money for something better.
