In the latest episode of Huffington Post’s HuffPost Black Voices / The Tanning Effect, Steve Stoute sat down with Pharrell of the world famous Neptunes. Some of the topics they touched on range from the musical influences he gained while living in VA Beach, the impact that Teddy Riley had on himself and Chad Hugo, and Michael Jackson wanting beats similar to Noreaga’s Superthug. Check parts two and three after the jump. Props to Soul Culture via Huffington Post.
“I have been telling him, ‘Yo, I got these Michael records [that I did for Michael].’ And I’ll never forget Michael’s manager saying, ‘Yo, Michael wants some “Superthug!”‘ And I was like, ‘What?'” the producer-singer recalled. “I remember being so baffled and so crushed, ’cause he still is my idol.”
