Here is a small video of Wiz and Pharrell working on some new material. It appears they’re working on an infectious new track called “Look What You Did To Me.” Soon, Skateboard P shows up to offer advice, when asked about his creative process. “I used to just be super impulsive and I didn’t think things out,” he explained. “[Now] I want them to have volume. Anything I do, I want it to have depth and purpose.”
After explaining that he often works as a “mirror” for his artists, Pharrell praised Wiz for his own creative efforts, celebrating his rapping, acting, label ownership, and hitmaking abilities. “A lot of times, we hear songs that are awesome and you really root for the person, like, ‘This person is great. Why can’t they figure it out?’ You can’t figure out, for the life of you, why they can’t make another record,” said Williams.
“You’re not one of those guys.” The video also features Pharrell and Khalifa rocking side to side while music is played in the studio, likely teasing a future collaboration from the duo. In the past, Wiz and Skateboard collaborated on O.N.I.F.C.’s “Rise Above,” which featured Tuki Carter and Amber Rose.

Pharrell Williams sits down with 7-year-old interview guru Poppy Browne to discuss what makes the world-renowned musician and producer happy, which planet he’d live on, and his favorite song. To memorialize this epic encounter, Poppy and Pharrell take a couple Polaroid pictures.
Pharrell Williams, G-Star RAW’s co-owner – welcomed friends of the brand Jaden Smith, Desiigner, D.R.A.M. and Joey Bada$$ to toast the latest launch of the G-Star Elwood X25 at a bespoke vintage Laundromat space. “The G-Star Mat is a space that embodies what the G-Star Elwood X25 stands for – creativity and self-expression. The new prints stand out and make a statement about who you are and what you want to say about yourself to the world.” Pharrell Williams said.
Drawing on inspiration from across the globe, Pharrell has reimagined the classic G-Star Elwood in 25 bright and beautiful prints that meld motifs from the natural world – from poison dart frogs and butterfly fish to leopards and whale sharks – with beautiful renderings from diverse cultures: including ornate Indian paisley prints and Japanese kimono embroidery.
Pharrell is taking a stand. While introducing Hype Williams during VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors” special, the N*E*R*D frontman went off script and opened up about current events with a call to action for all those watching along. “For everybody at home watching this and acting like y’all don’t see what’s going on out there, you gotta open your eyes,” he declared. “Open your eyes. You keep saying you don’t see what’s going on on television, what’s happening to us, open your eyes. And if you look like how I look, then you know how we got here but we’re here and we’re not leaving. So, what are we gonna do?”
But Skateboard P’s message was inclusive, as it was also aimed at others in this nation at a time when stories of racism and injustice have dominated the headlines. “For everybody else in this country, the human condition is important,” he added. “Don’t think just because they’re coming at the African-Americans and they’re coming at the Jewish communities, they’re coming at the Hispanics, that it can’t be you too just cause you look like them — they’re using you, okay?
