The Neptunes

Perhaps modern music’s most exciting yin and yang tandem, Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams changed hip-hop and the world around them. Although The Neptunes went on to produce for pop icons such as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, one of their greatest contributions came working with one half of The Clipse, Pusha T. While Chad has generally remained the underspoken member of The Neptunes, his importance to the grand scheme of things isn’t to be understated. Pharrell has gone on to become an even bigger global sensation due to his recent motivational anthem “Happy,” but his voice can still be heard within hip-hop since he consistently works amongst today’s up and coming acts.
