Pusha T and Pharrell's friendship dates back to the Clipse and N.E.R.D days, although each artist has found new life in solo careers recently and they haven't been doing as much work together as they used too. Nonetheless it's safe to say that Pusha T collaboration with Pharrell on his debut My Name Is My Name, "S.N.I.T.C.H.", was definitely a highlight.

Pharrell's Oprah Prime Interview (Preview)
There was a time when it was tough for rappers to get in the hot seat with Oprah-- unless they were ready to get lectured. Things have changed however, and the seasoned television host has opened her mind to hip hop in recent years, most recently giving Pharrell a sit-down interview. Pharrell doesn't exactly identify as a rapper these days (though he did absolutely slay his verse on Future's "Move That Dope"), and in a new preview from the interview, he addresses his feelings about playing the background role to a lot of emcees over the last decade.
Pharrell On Ellen DeGeneres
Pharrell and his infamous hat (as well as some super shiny custom-made Swarovski shoes) paid a visit to Ellen DeGeneres recently, and while a guest on the show he discussed his many career successes, of course centered around this past year specifically as he produced hit on top of hit, not only for himself but for other artists. Pharrell talks about "Happy" receiving an Oscar nod and his performance at the event. Pharrell thanks Ellen for all her support of the single. He also discusses his love for women, and his new album G I R L.

Future Feat. Pusha T, Pharrell & Casino
Future unveiled his album cover, release date and tracklist this week, solidifying a release for the oft-delayed Honest. While there have been plenty of singles attached to the project, it seems that the crew track, "Move That Dope" has stuck the most. While we saw the video for the single last week, Casino's throat-shredding Gunplay-meets-Waka verse was unfortunately absent.

Future Feat. Pusha T & Pharrell
Future dropped the monstrous "Move That Dope" on us last month, and the official video has finally arrived. Unfortunately, Casino's throat shredding verse didn't make the cut, but Pusha T and the surprisingly show-stealing Pharrell verse are still here, as well as Tyler, The Creator, Wiz Khalifa, and ScHoolboy Q for no apparent reason. The video builds on the 80s theme of the instrumental, incorporating some old-school cell phones that the rappers call their deals in on.
