Video: Pharrell’s Key Note Speech at Midem

Okay, so let’s try this one more time. Thanks to Illionaire for the rip.

In the 80’s there was Quincy, in the 90’s there was Dr. Dre… just last month, Billboard Magazine named you producer of the decade

Pharrell was invited to give the key note speech at Midem, a music business conference held in Cannes, France. It was in Q&A format with Rob Stone, who is the co-CEO of Cornerstone – who you might remember from Pharrell’s Billboard cover.

UPDATE: I sat through this 40 minute interview earlier today and Pharrell had some really good shit to say. If you have the time, I suggest you watch/listen to what he said while out there.

Look out for Côte D’Azur P at the NRJ Awards while he’s out there.

    What the fuck you done to those Nikes kid? Are They (where they) dunks?

  2. Smear Says:

    Neptunes deserve the billboard award (somethin like 30% of radio in 02/03??)
    But Just Blaze gotta be the best of the last decade as far as thorough hip-hop goes

    why doesn’t Manny Fresh ever get any acknowledgement for his astonishing contribution to the game? just consider what he accomplished on his own during a time period when every other successful hiphop label retained a stable of producers (i.e. Badboy/hitmen, No Limit/Beats by the Pound, Deathrow/Dre & all his children, the Roc/too many to list, etc. . ).
    and yes, i’m aware that a fair amount of his music became repetative and was sub-par at best, but damn. just the sheer amount he put out in such a relatively short period of time is mind-boggling. plus he has a laundry list of bangers.

    i’m just sayin. dude deserves to start being included in those discussions. you know what i’m talkin about. so i’ll start:

    Mannie Fresh easily belongs in the ‘top 10 rap producers of all time’ list.

    easy.
