Shortly after the leak of Snoop, Pharrell, and Uncle Charlie;s latest collab from Bush, Awake, we get the official video to the lead single from Snoop’s newest album with Peaches N Cream. Snoop came the fuck through on this video, by far one of his best. High expectations for Bush.

See this is wtf I’m talking about from Snoop and Pharrell! Bush is shaping up to be the lowkey summer banger/feel good music. I just hope we get another Let’s Get Blown considering the past two releases and overall tone of the album have been in the same vein as Snoop’s R&G album.

The Associate Press reports that the ongoing trial between the Gaye Estate and Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke has ended in favor of Gaye, resulting in a $7.5 million fine for the two multiplatinum performers. Accusations that Williams and Thicke lifted significant elements of Marvin Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up” have flown since last year, resulting in a candid deposition wherein Williams revealed that he had written the song despite it being publicly credited to Thicke. In a verdict read this afternoon in Los Angeles, the jury concluded that similarities between the two compositions were too significant to simply indicate “inspiration,” as Thicke and Williams had tried to argue. For a more detailed look at the trail and its ramifications, head over to Billboard.

We finally get the first full offering from Snoop Dogg and the “Beautiful” team (minus Chad) from Snoop’s upcoming album produced by Pharrell titled, Bush. Sounds like the album is shaping up to be some groovy G-Funk shit. Check out the full version of the much teased track, Peaches N Cream. Cool nod to their older track “Feet Don’t Feel Me Now” but was hoping for one of those awesome Pharrell breaks. Still pretty smooth though.. #FollowTheBush

Rocky got with Billboard to finally speak on the untimely death of Yams, his upcoming Sundance film festival debut starring in the Diddy & Pharrell produced movie, DOPE, and revealing that alongside Gnarls Barkley,Black Keys, and MF Doom, Yams is also attached to Rocky’s already finished next album as Executive Producer.
“People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs — he didn’t overdose on any drugs,” Rocky said, though he declined to discuss the real cause of Yams’ passing. “I feel like people feel that way because that’s all he’s in pictures doing. When you see A$AP Yams you see Hennessey or purple drink, you see some type of controlled substance or illegal narcotic.”
“But Rocky insisted he’s doing all right, and that he would recover from his friend’s sudden death. “I’m a happy spirit, man, and I feel like time heals,” he said. “It’s all about good people with good energy, and the universe keeps producing them to me. I’ll be fine. God is good and I keep all hope and faith.”
“castmates, including Shameik Moore, Workaholics star Blake Anderson and model Chanel Iman, who Rocky reportedly split from in October after a six-month engagement (he declined to comment on the current state of their relationship).
“Rocky said he also was heartened by the outpouring of condolences from his peers online, including Drake, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, and Azealia Banks, who tweeted that Yams should be “remembered as a leader, an innovator and most importantly as an important part of NYC youth culture.”
“Rocky revealed for the first time that Yams is co-executive producer of the still-untitled album, along with Grammy-winning producer Dangermouse (Black Keys, Gnarls Barkley, MF Doom). “Dangermouse and Yams — I’m really intrigued for people to hear how that combination sounds. Yams manifested his powers into it.”

P made the cover of GQ for the trillionth time for their upcoming Music Legacy issue. During the interview he discusses his frustrations while executive producing T.I.‘s latest album, Paperwork. Check out an excerpt..
“I wasn’t happy about the T.I. situation,” Pharrell said to GQ. “They did that record hoping for radio play, and they got nothing out of it…. Great, you got your No. 1 hip-hop song. But what does that do for your sales?” Presumably speaking about T.I.’s hit singles “About The Money” featuring Young Thug and “No Mediocre” featuring Iggy Azalea.
“You want to be camouflage?” he says about the T.I. record. “Go ahead. Blend in. But we want to be that twinkle in the sky.” It’s a metaphor he likes, and it could serve as a philosophy: Being mass and being special are not mutually exclusive. “We want to be that twinkle in the sky. And you might not be able to see that star now. But it’s daytime. Wait till it gets dark.”
Also featured in the issue are St. Vincent, Sam Smith, Future, Mark Ronson, Stevie Wonder, Diplo, Kim Gordon, Rick Ross, FKA Twigs, James Blake, Drake, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Karen O, Spoon, Nas, and Iggy Azalea. While it may seem like everything Pharrell touches turns to gold (or Platinum), a snippet of the interview touches on one of the few missteps he took in the past 12 months in T.I.’s Paperwork album, a project he executive produced. -The Stashed
