(AllHipHop News) Justin Timberlake, Tyler The Creator, and Chad Hugo were guests on a recent episode of Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener’s Beats 1 Radio show OTHERtone. Video of the conversation has now been uploaded to YouTube. The clip included the entertainers discussing being inspired by A Tribe Called Quest.
“I don’t know who Chad would say was his influence in slamming those elements together, but for me it was Q-Tip and Tribe. That Low End Theory man,” said Pharrell about his production with The Neptunes.
Vener then asked about their relationship with ATCQ member Phife Dawg. Pharrell spoke about how when he was working with Timbaland, he believed Magoo sounded like Tip and he sounded like Phife.
“I sounded terrible, but in my mind at that time, you couldn’t tell me anything. Just because of what Tribe represented to me. That was the birth of my personal interest,” stated Pharrell.
Chad added, “The thing that did it for me for A Tribe Called Quest with their music was their love for Jazz.”
In addition, Tyler and Timberlake reflected on their experiences working with and watching The Neptunes create tracks. JT also commented on collaborating with the production duo for his debut solo album Justified.
