Complex just released some outtakes from their Pharrell piece and one of the questions was about Pusha’s suggestion that P work with Curtis on a new project.
Are you more interested in bringing back someone who cooled off, or breaking new talent? Pusha told me, “I want 50 to just get in the studio with Pharrell, just let Pharrell do the whole album.”
I would love that. But, you know, he would have to see why that makes sense…for himself. That doesn’t mean it makes the ultimate sense, I mean you know, people could read this and be like,
“What?! Ew, no. Don’t fuck with Pharrell.” You know? I would love to make an album with 50 that felt like a film. ‘Cause he’s an actor. He’s an actor and a rapper and all these other things. I would wanna put all those talents together and try and make a cohesive body of work that was all about him. I’d just be Mario Puzo. I don’t have to be Corleone. I don’t have to be in it at all. I could just be the air in the room, which is just the storywriter or the backdrop. Cause he’s the storywriter.
Yeah, I’d listen to that album, but Boo-Boo needs a bigger miracle than P can deliver. Incidentally, during a promo event for his SMS headphones line earlier this week, he mentioned that he’d be releasing a “full body of work” in January.

They cite the ubiquity of the P produced Robin Thicke single “Blurred Lines” and his collaboration with Daft Punk on “Get Lucky” as proof that after nearly 20 years in the game, Skateboard P can still run the table.
