Pharrell Williams Describes Consulting For The Oscars, Jay-Z & Blue Ivy Carter's "Glory"

Pharrell explains what it's like working with Hans Zimmer for the Oscars, as well as the song he produced for Jay-Z and his daughter.

Pharrell may be the busiest producer in Hip Hop. Interestingly enough, much of his work these days actually has nothing to do with Hip Hop.

In a recent interview with GQ.com, the talented artist discussed a slew of subjects, including his music consultant position with Hans Zimmer for the Oscars.

 

We have to reinterpret some of the music for the nominees. We have to do other music as well that is at times new and original and at others borrowing from movie scenes.

"We have to reinterpret some of the music for the nominees," he explained. "We have to do other music as well that is at times new and original and at others borrowing from movie scenes."

Pharrell was paired with Zimmer, a composer whose score for The Lion King won him an Oscar. The two collaborated previously on the score for 2010's Despicable Me. "It's an honor for me because I get to be mentored, creative, and credited for learning under the auspices of somebody like him. I'm always honored when he takes my direction and to have direction come from him. It's really been this interesting collaborative thing. But for me, secretly, it's still like school and I love it."

Pharrell was also asked about his thoughts on "Glory," the song Jay-Z penned for his daughter, which Williams produced. "[T]hat was another covert operation," he said, adding, "Everything was by design. That's all I'll say."

    Thanks niggas for confirming Jay's status as the GOAT with your hate.

  • daviddanielz

    YESSIR: Sounds like you have extre hate in your blood for Jay. Is your life that terrible that you have to hate on someone who has done it all. Maybe if you focus on your life, you wouldn't get so upset to see someone else do good. (Just saying)

    • daviddanielz

      YESSIR: I'm not sure if you work for this website to assure people will keep conversations going so you guys get heavy foot traffic on this site or if like I said earlier your life is that bad that you need to say delusional comments. Personally I dislike anyone who tries to harm the culture of hiphop so if your working for this site then you should be ashamed of yourself. Trying to effect the culture of hiphop in a negative light only harms us all. If it's the ladder and you have issues with your life I pray for you to find your way. I'm sure you will.

    I think you guys take your hate for Jay to another level sometimes. I notice the same people who hate Jay love Lil Wayne & Drake. Which tells me, first your young and immature. That being said...To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid. So do you keep up the good work and I'll contiune to listen to Jay not you...

    • Mr Flamboyant

      LOL at Jay Z being the GOAT of anything when he's never created anything... I can't believe what I'm about to type: YESSIR actually has a point with the "pimping" of his newborn. When will just anything for publicity and fame stop actually? Some things should be sacred.
