    Pharrell Williams TI Paperwork

    Pharrell Williams said in a recent interview with GQ magazine, that he wasn’t happy with the outcome from the work he put into the Paperwork album from the rapper T.I.

    Here’s what Pharrell revealed:

    “I wasn’t happy about the T.I. situation, they did that record hoping for radio play, and they got nothing out of it…. Great, you got your No. 1 hip-hop song. But what does that do for your sales?

    You want to be camouflage? Go ahead. Blend in. But we want to be that twinkle in the sky. We want to be that twinkle in the sky. And you might not be able to see that star now. But it’s daytime. Wait till it gets dark.”

    1. I think you betta call…izzy and tell her to come over and help you get yo shit….I think you betta call…

    2. Does anyone get the subtext of what he’s saying? I mean is it deeper than it sounds at face value?

    3. Ever since ti has been promoting that racist ass albino kangaroo he got lame af smfh then he wanna turn on black people that’s what his dumb ass gets

    4. Pharrell looks like he gets f*cked a lot in the industry. I wonder if he and TI has gotten it on. All TI have to do to make him happy is give him some dick.

    5. If he is not happy with the sale why don’t he just buy all the cd’s to help ti out. Shoot they always want fans to make them richer

      • Why are people still dumb enough to finance their lifestyle. This is all this is. Sounds like he needs more money to buy some $100 million dollar mansion. Someone send him a check please.

    6. That’s because the industry is done, its been over all the garbage ass music that’s been coming out please Pharrell should not only be disappointed in T.I he should be disappointed in the industry period.those two make a cute couple is that what’s going on here?

    7. Well, after they both stuck the boot into the black community; defending anything non black over black, telling black folk it’s their fault for getting shot at, trying to guilt trip black females into supporting Icky having a go at Azaelia Banks …. Did they really think that black folk would support them both?

      The white man only wants you to promote them, they could give a shit about promoting you on the airways.

    8. I do not buy albums. I hear the same ish on the radio, on repeat. I swear, if I hear that bobby shmurda “hot niccas” on repeat, again, i will be the one in front of the radio station with the picket sign. Ugh!!

    9. TI lost his black women fan base. We are over tip defending his kangaroo from down under. Where is Idris Elba, Common, etc.?

    10. I PRETTY PHARRELL AN TI DONE FUCKED BEFORE THATS COMMON IN THE INDUSTRY BUTT BUDIES, NIGGAS FUCKS FOR BEATS.

    11. You can’t diss us then expect us to support you. Personally I’m glad his album tanked, he can continue to play Coon to the Kangaroo because that bitch over as well. How to kill 2 careers at the same damn time. Aint nobody checking for his sell out ass.

      • SAmpling been around since sugarhill gang.

        but those days it was more creative and exciting then.

        rap is more techno now than anything else and more catered towards the gay audience.

        rather hear the samples then hear the same beat every dasmn song.

    12. There’s only a few artists I would give a pass but I can’t think of any at the time. Lol. I love me some old school Motown.

      • Yep and also classic jamdown. Berres Hammond and Sugar Minott(rip) gets one through a rough day.

    13. They know why his LP got no love. Both of them transformed into human Octopuses. Meaning, they change colors at the drop of a dime to blend in with their environment. Selling out is for the birds, try telling them that…No Loyalty=No Money

    14. that shit was trash & just because pharell is singing doesn’t guarantee a hit.you lost us with that no mediocre shit,you’re a coon!

      • LIKE PHARRELL COULD SING AT ALL BUT HE WAS ENTERTAINING.

        PHUKK TIP FOOL KEWPT GOING TO RISON, FIGHTING EVERYBODY TRYING TO KILL SOME FOOLS HIS CARRER PLAYING OUT.

        PLUS HE WANTED TO DEFEND IGGY TOO DAMN MUCH OKAY YOU PHUKKING HER COOL BUT DON’T GO AROUND SAYING DON’TR MESS WITH MY CUTE LITTLE WHITE GIRL.

        LEAVE MY LITTLE WHITE GIRL ALONE.

        SWEAR A BLACK GUY PHUKK A WHITE GIRL AND THEY LOSE THEIR PHUKKING MINDS.

    15. PHARRELL

    16. THAT’S WHAT HIS TOKEN HOUSE NIGGA ASS GET. IRONY IS THAT U GOT THAT CAUCUS MOUNTAIN DOWN SYNDROME LOOKIN PALE FACE WHITE BITCH WHO COULDNT RAP IF IT WAS A GIFT ALBUM TO SELL ALL THE WHILE U SELLOUT YOURSELF AND RACE BUT CANT SELL RECORDS.

      • iggy sounds like nicki.

        at least nicki never tried to rap like lil kim.

        azaelia banks should have gotten more spotlight shes better than iggy.

        iggy has songs that sounds like nicki minaj’s leftovers.

    17. Music won’t get back real until a lot of these puppets quit the total blatant B.S! Yes, the music industry is just that, a business, but when will these clowns realize and get back to expressing music as just that…an ART!!!

    18. I cant front the album wasn’t bad but doing collabs with iggy, officer ricky and young gay thug left a bad taste in my mouth and apparently the other millions of ppl who bought his prior albums. He should have stayed with Atlantic, Sony will kill his ass if them sales don’t pull through by the next album.

      Damn shame now back to listening to Lil Keke- money never Sleeps.

    19. The album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 80,000 copies in the United States.[47] In its second week, the album dropped to number 13 on the chart, selling 27,000 copies.[48] In its third week, the album dropped to number 20 on the chart, selling 16,000 copies, bringing its total album sales to 123,000 copies.[49] In its fourth week, the album dropped to number 33 on the chart, selling 10,000 copies.[50] As of December 10, 2014, the album has sold 157,000 copies….can anybody FLOP.

      • it’s not about if it can flop,it did.they thought it would be huge but it wasn’t.J.cole dropped with no singles or promo really & did 300k.real hip hop lives.people don’t want that shit.

    20. Brother please, get over yourself & the over hyped work you do. T.I is wack, been stagnant for almost 10yrs.

    21. No one is checking for T.I. Everytime he raps I think of a self prescribed hip old uncle or grandpa. 2004-2007 was such a long time ago.

    22. T.I Is Your Fault For Defending That None Talented Kangaroo Bytch!!

      If He Wasn’t Ramming Her Down Our Throats, Then He’s Album Sales Would Of Been On Point!!
      He Dogged Out Black Women Just For His Pet Kangroo Whore

    23. Why does he think these weak songs would maintain my interest? I personally prefer buying mix tapes. The dj’s make my daily commute much more interesting.

    24. only rap cd’s I listened to last year WAS.
      DAZ AND WC
      MC EIHT WHICH WAY WAS WEST.

      ALL THESE NEW RAPPERS TRY TO ACT HARD BUT SOUND GAY.

      SWEAR AT LEAST THE FAKE THUGS SOUNDED BETTER AND ACTED LIKE THEY HAD A PAIR OF NUTS.

      FRANK OCEAN, MIGUEL, BRUNO MARS, CHRISA BROWN, THEY ALL SOUND LIKE SOMEBODY BENT THEM OVER ADD DRAKE TOO.

      AND LIL WAYNE SINGS AWFUL WITH AUTOTUNE HE SOUNDS LIKE A FROG DYING.

      SOMEBODY TELL FUTURE AND WIZ KHALIFA THEY’LL NEVER BE HENDRIX.
