I know this is somewhat mean of me to say, but generally speaking, I don’t pay any heed to what MuchMusic, Canada’s equivalent to MTV (yes we have an MTV, but MuchMusic has been around for decades) say to say about music. I tend to view them as a shill for mainstream top 40 music.
So imagine my surprise when I saw this very interesting interview with Pharrell Williams that was recorded a few weeks back. The interview delves into several topics, and although seemingly unimpressed or amused Pharrell does get into it. He talks about N.E.R.D.â€™s highly anticipated forthcoming album, the influences for the album, Pusha Tâ€™s signing with G.O.O.D Music, and even touches on his project with Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West, Child Rebel Soldier.
