He was 20 years old, man. He didn't deserve to go out like that regardless of his past. I never got into his music. It wasn't for me.

RE: N*E*R*D - Provider (Alternate version) HD Music video
Look what I found, that's amazing.
NERD's Provider music vid is still available on Youtube on fans' accountq but in low quality.
It has never been uploaded on an official account, too bad, we're working on it, but I've managed to find a HD version on Vimeo that I never watched before: it's the alternate version of the song.
Word it's amazing. I'm watching it and I'm getting goosebumps. Thank you for posting this here, Maxime.
RE: Kelly Sheehan - 1983 (Pharrell Williams) (18')
Haha damn sorry guys. While ripping the vinyl I was confused at which RPM I needed to play it. Guess I was wrong.
In my opinion the beat sounded to fast at 45RPM while at 33RPM the beat sounds good but the vocals are slow.
I still do think the beats sounds to sped up, but if they promote it like this then I guess this is the way they want it to be heard
I don't think I would've played it more than once if I had heard it at the "right" tempo/pitch.
RE: Random Neptunes Tracks
I dig all four of these. I'm Lovin' It a classic. I don't care that Mickey D's used it. I hadn't heard It Must Be Tough. I didn't care for some of the other records with Game (I'm not a fan of Game), but this one is really dope thanks to the production and Pharrell's parts. I really wish we had a finished version of I Need U. @Mavis nails what makes I Don't Know great.
I Don’t Know is genius. Because it intentionally sounds kind of bad for the first minute or so, and Chad detuned all the layered instruments so that the one repetitive chord sounds kind of clashy and ugly.... but then it suddenly breaks out into something really beautiful and other worldly. Amazing. I don’t think it would have that same impact if it sounded dreamy for the whole track.
You can tell a lot of thought when into the whole concept, even though it sounds so simple. P’s a genius as well because that first part of the beat is boring as hell but his song writing and vocal melodies really bring that to life and stop it seeming repetitive
