Pharrell, Chad Hugo and Shay hit up ComplexCon last week. They confirmed that their new album will feature guest appearances by André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, M.I.A, Future, Gucci Mane, Wale, and Ed Sheeran. The most intriguing record is (obviously) the one that features Andre 3000 since 3000 recently admitted that rap to him now is more of a hobby. People want to know what a new verse from him would sound like. Here’s a preview of their collab “Rollinem 7’s” as played on Beats 1 Radio. Pharrell had this to says about the collaboration:
“It almost didn’t happen. There were moments where my stomach dropped out. Because I knew if 3 Stacks gave us a verse, I knew he was gonna go hard. We just had to talk to him. We’re all clear that he’s a genius, right? We’re all clear that he’s an alien? So for him, he has a process, and there’s a bunch of things that need to make sense before he even commits himself to something.”
