A Tribute To Skateboard P
Although he has just released his debut solo album, Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes is nothing new to the industry. He has helped produce primarly hit hip-hop tracks for major artists like Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, the Clipse, and Slim Thug, among many others totalling more than 30 artists. His success with singles and releases, including those from his newest album, In My Mind, seem to be hit or miss with most listeners. With his unique beats and catchy lyricm Skateboard P has emerged as a highly talented entertainer.
On top of his musical exploits, Pharrell has dabbled into other fields including a clothing line, the Billionaire Boys Club, a skateboard line, Ice Cream Skate Line, to which he's signed professional skaters including his younger brother, and a record lable, Star Trak Entertainment.
"I put Snoop in the coupe, I put Slim in the Slab."
"Trust me, P is no pimp. See I got heavy pockets, so I walk with a limp."
