Shit like this is probably why Chad just does his own thing nowadays.
Neptunes are praised for being weird and having an off-kilter and unorthodox style. That’s mostly Chads contribution. Things got VASTLY more “normal” and generic sounding when we started seeing “Produced by Pharrell” instead of Neptunes
So it must be infuriating when you’re Chad and you’re sitting there beside Pharrell. And everyone’s circle jerking about how weird and insane Pharrells sound is. Even though you’re undebateably the architect of the weird sound.
