Director – Preston Whitmore

Score & Composer – Pharrell Williams
Writer – Preston Whitmore
I was thinking about this today and I think now there won’t be a Pharrell solo album, well not this time thought , i think Busta Rhymes heard the Score for the upcoming Zoom movie since Busta said: “a movie is coming with the album, with some big f—in’ super-producer in Hollywood. They heard the album and they couldn’t believe it so they wanted to write a script for a movie that goes with the entire album. And the movie is gonna be based on the topics that he talks about in his songs“, so yeah i think there won’t be a new solo album, it’s the Zoom Score. Zoom is based on his own life growing up in West VA where he attended high school and met Chad Hugo…which led to the creation of The Neptunes. Pharrell will compose the score and soundtrack. “Zoom” is the story of a troubled West Virginia youth who attends a music academy and finds his voice and a place in the world.
Check out this “Back On My B.S” Review by Busta Rhymes himself where he explained how they created The Neptunes track “Kill Them” and check out what else Busta said…
“This is one o’ the two tracks that were originally done when I was signed to Aftermath – the other was Don’t Believe ‘Em. The rest of the album was re-done when I did the deal with Sylvia. The beat here was inspired by Shame On A Nigga, from ODB. The guest on it is a lady called Tosh, a Jamaican Mariah Carey-type singer, but I wanted her to give me that raw Jamaican patois on this record, and cos of my Jamaican descent I did the same thing. And everybody take notice: Pharrell’s new album is incredible. He played it to me in the studio and that shit made me cry, just like with Midnight Marauders when I first heard it. This isn’t Rebel Child Soldier [Pharrell’s rumoured supergroup with Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco], this is Pharrell by his self! Yo, the shit that he does on this album, he has never given it to anyone, ever. And it’s no cameos on it! He has no-one with him on his album at all – it’s just him by his self. This shit is the most incredible fuckin’ album I’ve heard since Midnight Marauders. In f—in’ tears, cryin’ hysterically in the studio! Un f—in’ believeable! And the entire album is about the suffering in the urban community. But this album is so crazy, that right now I think a movie is coming with the album, with some big f—in’ super-producer in Hollywood. They heard the album and they couldn’t believe it so they wanted to write a script for a movie that goes with the entire album. And the movie is gonna be based on the topics that he talks about in his songs. The movie provided the script. Yo, this shit is so f—ing crazy! So crazy!”
It looks like Pharrell is planing a In My Mind Part 2, or is it Clones II: Empire Strickes Back ? “XXLMag”, we’ll see!
