On The Preview, you worked with Pharrell on “The Good Life.” What was it like, going into the studio and collaborating with someone like him on a beat?
We met Pharrell in Los Angeles, which is the perfect place for crazy things to occur. We were in a nice little low key studio, Pharrell was there and he introduced himself, “Hey, my name’s Pharrell.” We were like, “I mean, yeah, we know!” It was surreal in the sense that we never imagined any of this could really happen since we started making music on our computers in a dorm room and sneaking into studios on our college campus. He offered a level of musical maturity, as far as just knowing what to do in the studio. The studio is tough because you’ve got to know when to channel this spontaneous energy into creating, but also know when to chill and then get back to creating again. Pharrell doesn’t waste any time. He knows how to use his time in the studio effectively. We cooked that beat up, Xaphoon added his element to it, and it just came out great.
