It’s unfortunate it takes crossing paths with a member of the Billionaire Boys Club to ignite this blog. Earlier today, while rolling through none other than J. Crew – hey, they’ve stepped up their game – I crossed paths with Pharrell Williams, who I know as a man behind one of, at the time, my favorite records of 2002. Sure, time can be cruel and the rap meets rock thing isn’t as hot; but realize In Search Of occasionally is still spun. And way back when, N*E*R*D was an excellent act live; the Metro in Chicago can definitely attest. To celebrate me locking eyes with Mr. Williams today, I wanted to share a remix of their single from LP #2, She Wants to Move. Where the original was hot, the addition of many more verses care of Mos Def, De La Soul, Common, and Q-Tip help to create five minutes of hard-hitting beats and rhymes.
I regret not shaking the man’s hand.
