Murda Beatz and Pharrell have some "fire" en route.
If 2017 was the year of Metro Boomin, Murda Beatz has been putting in work to stake his claim on 2018. The Canadian producer has built a respectable collection of hits, including Drake's "Nice For What," which currently sits at 3X platinum; it isn't uncommon to hear his iconic "Murda on the beat so it's not nice" tag on any given A-list album. Now, it would appear that the youngster is plotting his next move, which may very well include a noteworthy collaboration with one of the game's pioneers.
Murda took to Instagram to share footage of himself and Pharrell Williams, who previously ran the game during the early aughts; his work in The Neptunes alongside Chad Hugo helped establish new millennium production as a second golden era. Being twenty-four, it's entirely possible that Murda caught the tail end of Pharrell's peak run, and no doubt holds his contributions to hip-hop in high regard. Last night, the pair crossed paths, and likely decided a collaboration was the only logical conclusion.
Behold the pair of intergenerational beat-makers, who seem willing and able to find common ground behind the boards.
