Pharrell: I’m Releasing A New Solo Album, But I Won’t Rap On It

(AllHipHop News) It seems not too long ago that Pharrell was rapping “When I finger f*ck the track it caress the gift” on his 2006 Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama. Seven years later and Pharrell is working on a new solo album with one change: he won’t be rapping.

In an interview with Complex, the man with the producer’s golden touch revealed that he is indeed working on a follow up to his 2006 debut solo album In My Mind, however age has halted his desire to rap:

No rapping. It’s focused. Like I told you, that’s the difference between 30 and 40. ’Cause I was 30, now I’m 40—and I’m not rapping.

Pharrell has also been up to his usual music curation moves behind the scenes with Pusha T recently telling BBC Radio One’s Zane Lowe about Skateboard P’s idea of The Clipse doing a Speakerboxx/Love Below-type album. Quoting Pharrell, Pusha explained Pharrell’s idea:

‘I think we should do a two sided [album]’. You do what you do, he do what he do, and that’s what we do.’

There is no tentative release date for Pharrell’s as-of-yet untitled sophomore solo album.
