"Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin doing a collaborative set"
Oh dear. I may have talked about this before but the one area where Ye had P beat, no question, is with his choices of musical collaborators. Kanye's 'taste level' as he calls it is much higher than Pharrell's.
P puts Jamie Cullum on his album, Ye works with Justin Vernon. Pharrell works with Ed Sheeran, Ye works with James Blake. Chris Martin could not be a more MOR choice. It's like 'couldn't convince Thom Yorke to work with me so I guess I'll get the poor mans Thom Yorke.'
