Pharrell And Snoop Dogg Talk About Collaborating, 2 Chainz, And Having Crossover Apeal

Posted By on February 6, 2014

Pharrell Williams and Snoop Dogg (Snoop Lion) go together like peanut butter and jelly. At least as far as musical collabs are concerned. From “Beautiful” to “Drop it Like It’s Hot“, the two definitely know how to bang out a hit song. Pharrell recently hit Snoop’s GGN (Double G News Network) and discussed everything from their past collabs, future plans, to 2Chainz.

One of the first topics that came up was the ability of both Pharrell and Snoop to crossover genres so easily.

“Ain’t that a special move for you to just be able to fall in with these legends, and do music as if you were in they time period?” said Snoop, specifically referring to Pharrell’s collaborations with Daft Punk. “That’s the thing that I don’t get, is how you can just flow into they time period, and come back with something with Justin, and do something over here with 2 Chainz… You don’t have no time period on your music. You can get in, where you fit in.”

Pharrell came back and agreed, but also pointed out that Snoop is the king of the crossover power.

“Right,” Pharrell said, before adding, “But what’s the difference with you? Because you’ve done the same thing. Listen: everyone else from your era… I don’t know where too many of those guys are, whereas right now, we’re going into 2014, and you’re gonna do it again.”
