Pharrell and Snoop Dogg are legends in the world of hip-hop (and music in general), and they have two distinct personalities that are featured in this back-and-forth 19 minute conversation. Pharrell joined Snoop Dogg on his GGN show to talk about a wide variety of topics as it relates to their successful musical careers. The mutual respect for each other’s work is made clear by both artists throughout the discussion, and there are numerous anecdotes that range from being truly meaningful to hysterically ridiculous. With an unlimited amount of classic stories between the two, the interview is definitely worth 20 minutes of your time if you are a fan of either artist.

It is hard to not be impressed by Pharrell’s output of material recently and Snoop Dogg is no different from the rest of us. Snoop asks Skateboard P about his collaborations with Daft Punk on their Random Access Memories album as well as the details behind Pharrell’s 24-hours “Happy” music video, which he will be performing at the Oscar’s. To this day, Snoop seems to be in awe of how Pharrell ability to musically adapt as he works with so many artists across a number of different genres. There is just something about Pharrell’s sound that consistently has that “feel-good” vibe to it, and Snoop even admits that he wished he got the chance to rap over Pharrell’s “Excuse Me Miss” beat that ended up being a hit of Jay Z’s. Pharrell comes right back with a similar compliment to Snoop as he points out how remarkable it is that Snoop has been able to stay musically relevant for so long. The rapport between the two is obvious, and an example of their chemistry is discussed as they reminisced on the making of their biggest hit together “Drop It Like It’s Hot”.  And even though Pharrell has won a couple of Grammy’s and Snoop has 0 wins despite 16 nominations, each artist has been equally as vital to the hip-hop culture over the past two decades.
