Pharrell Praises 2 Chainz for Being ‘A Natural’
Pharrell is known for his eclectic musical style, but even he was able to pick up a few pointers from 2 Chainz. Skateboard P recently spoke to MTV about getting in the studio with the Def Jam signee for ‘Feds Watching.’
Following the 2013 Grammy Awards (while still in his award show tuxedo), Pharrell got in the studio with Chainz. “I’m absorbing the air and the vibe,” he remembered of the session, and then added, “Well, not literally the air.” Zing! The rapper-producer explained that Chainz dropped his verses one after the other and then dubbed him, “a natural.”
“This Armani, this Givenchy, I parachute you / I’m so fly I jumped out the air wearing Gucci,” 2 Chainz raps on the song. “I’m raw, talking California rolls / Smoking California weed with California hoes (Truu!).”
‘Feds Watching’ serves as the first single off the rapper’s forthcoming sophomore album, due Sept. 10.
