Kool G. Rap Failed To Collaborate With The Neptunes

kool-g-rap.jpg“They sent him to work with The Neptunes – like around when they started getting’ hot, coming off the NORE song – G Rap said Pharrell and ‘em only played him one track. They made a track in the studio and he was like, ‘Yo Drew, it was garbage’. He told Pharrell over and over, ‘Yo son, this is not me’, and Pharrell was like, ‘Yo, I’m your number-one fan, you gotta trust me on this G, listen to this!’ It wasn’t a G Rap song, it was a Neptunes song. G was like, ‘Yo, dog..’ and he’s that type of dude, he’s not gonna lie. He’s the most blunt, up-front dude you could ever meet.

He was like, ‘Yo, I’m outta here!’ He’d driven all the way to Virginia for that and then left. Maybe it would’ve worked, it could’ve been a big successful commercial record for him – maybe not. But he wasn’t willing to sacrifice who he was just to have some corny commercial record. That’s what you’re always up against when dealing with record companies. Thanks To Anodin
