    The Neptunes Tyler The Creator Scott Vener"MY NAME IS GALAXY GEAR AND I NEED ASSISTANCE". This was the most epic episode ever. Galaxy Gear aka Chad Hugo sat down with Pharrell, Scott Vener, Tyler, The Creator and Justin Timberlake to talk about how they created ‘Justified’ 14 years ago, the production history of Classics Neptunes tracks, and naturally the impact and legacy of A Tribe Called Quest's own Phife Dawg who recently passed from complications with diabetes.

    It started with Chad plugging his Galaxy Gear layering an Intro while the guys talked about some funny News Bloopers 1, 2 & 3. Tyler is the spokesperson for us Neptunes Fans and last week Tyler was kindy enough to ask us on the forum what questions we would like to hear on the show and the only reason he's on the show besides being where he is in life, he's asking all the questions Neptunes Fans have all wanted to ask, and he asked particulary about their favourite tracks on Justified and in which Pharrell started singing the lyrics to ‘Nothin Else’.

    Pharrell also revealed what has happened to the other Justin Timberlake x Neptunes collaborations that didn’t make the final cut like ‘Second Chance’ and ‘What's A Guy Gotta Do’(See Below) that has been created while they were working on the NSYNC record ‘Girlfriend’. JT said that ‘Second Chance’ didn’t make the final cut because it didn’t fit the concept of the album.

    Pharrell talked later on about ‘Frontin’ where he revealed that it was made specifically for Prince but he declined the tune. Pharrell joked that the verses on the track track were only like 2 chords and the bridge was like 16 chords in itself and he basically admitted that Chad added all of the instrumentation outside of drums and some basslines, notably the entire bridge of 'Frontin'.

    Justin also talked about the moment he knew that stepping away from ’NSync was the right move. “The funny thing is like, literally the first day of recording, I remember walking in and we were like, ‘What are we gonna do?’” Timberlake said. He then mimicked Chad, playing a riff on the guitar of ‘Like I Love You’ “And I was like, just that whole rhythm]… I was like, ‘This just sounds like nothing I’ve heard!’ It reminds me of the feeling I get from certain things that I love. That moment was so much of a confirmation for me.” Since striking out on his own, the musician has won numerous Grammy awards, four Emmys and much more.

    Pharrell said that he "accidentally" got into making hooks, songs like "Shake Ya Ass" were to be rough ideas, and they actually wanted The Temptations on that hook and that Pharrell only did drums and basslines while learning other instruments later on. In between these knowledge darts is a perfect mix of Neptunes hits and deep cuts by Scott Vener aka Broke Mogul below, straight nostalgia. Tyler somehow revealed at the end that there is a big project coming up, nonetheless, which is probably Pharrell's third studio album, nonetheless it’s great to hear that JT and The Neptunes are back in the studio, Don’t miss this episode on iTunes now and check out the Tracklist of the Episode below.
