Chad Hugo x DOPE Interview, Talks More Neptunes Tracks In 2019

chad-hugo1
Chad Hugo sat down with DOPE Mag to talk about the new N*E*R*D album, his influences and his future projects!

DOPE Magazine: Lets first talk about your set tonight. What does N.E.R.D have in store for Las Vegas at Life Is Beautiful?
Chad Hugo: Life Is Beautiful because life isbeautiful. When we get on stage, it’s like theater. We’re like a theater production. We’ve got dancers, a huge LED screen, a band, Pharrell, Shae, and I just wildin’ out playing our songs. Some stuff from our old albums, some stuff from our current album, “No One Ever Really Dies.” We’re just so excited to be here.

You mentioned Pharrell and Shae. N*E*R*D has been together for a lot longer than people think. You guys all grew up together, right?
I used to have a studio [above] a garage and people would bring over samples and stuff. We used just make music. Pharrell and I were in like a gifted and talented program and we just got together and started making music together. Kinda like our own little art school, except we weren’t enrolled in art school. We were always just striving to be on the radio in Virginia Beach.

Kap G x Billboard.com Interview, Talks ‘Dope’ & ‘Pharrell’

Atlantic Records newcomer Kap G may not be a household name just yet, but he’s working on it. On Tuesday, Kap released new single “I Be Up” featuring Nechie on iTunes and all digital providers. Come Friday, the Mexican-American rapper makes his formal theatrical debut — as the character Fidel — when the buzzy coming-of-age flick Dope premieres nationwide. The film’s accompanying soundtrack also features the Kap G track “Cocaina Shawty.”

Landing The Dope Cameo: KP is good friends with Pharrell, who was looking for someone to play the Fidel character. Pharrell told the film’s writer/director Rick Famuyiwa about me. I auditioned and they liked it. It was crazy — my first acting gig. I was a bit nervous on set because there was a bunch of people in the room when I was shooting, including [Dope stars] Chanel Iman and Quincy Brown. I scratched everyone out of my mind and went hard. Everybody says I did great.

Working With Pharrell: When Pharrell brought me in the studio with him, I played him a lot of my songs and we just connected. He likes that I’m bringing something new to the rap game as a Mexican-American. But he also believes I can be a top rapper — not just a top Mexican-American rapper. Make sure to cop ‘DOPE OST’ now on iTunes.

Pharrell Talks Curating ‘DOPE’ Soundtrack


Other than embodying the word down to a T, Grammy-winning crooner and super producer Pharrell Williams was pegged to curate the soundtrack for the upcoming film, “DOPE.” For the 15-track project, P came up with a variety classics, from the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, Nas, Naughty By Nature, Gil Scott-Heron, Digital Underground, and more.

Speaking to REVOLT recently, P filled us in on the theme and inspiration behind the soundtrack’s classic feel. “The blueprint for the soundtrack was basically dictated by everything that’s going on in the film,” he shared. “Specifically the ’90s hip-hop heads, it needed to be something that allowed their characters to breathe and represent what they did without trying to be too ’90s or trying to be too whatever. It just took the essence of the different music that we liked in the ’90s.”

Other than reaching back to the classic records for the soundtrack, Pharrell also contributes four new songs under the “Awreeoh” moniker, which happens to be the name of the band that the three main characters in the film play under. “DOPE” hits theaters on June 19.
