Pharrell Explains Why He Worked on ‘Hidden Figures’ Film and Working Relationship with Chad Hugo

I imagine talking to Pharrell is equivalent to taking a week of yoga classes. He exudes positive energy and he’ll teach you a few things that you didn’t know you needed to know. You may even feel a little more limber afterwards. So stretch before you watch the new interview that 2/3 of The Breakfast Club had with Pharrell above.

In it, they discuss how much Pharrell felt that working on the new Hidden Figures film was meant to be. Pharrell came on as a producer and helped with the sound track. Outside of his obsession with space, the film’s focus on smart, black women from Virginia had him hooked. Pharrell also goes over the presidential election, how women and millenials will save our country eventually, and coming up with Charlamagne’s second favorite acronym: SNITCH.

When Chad Hugo is brought up, Pharrell speaks a little uncomfortably. He picks his words very carefully. There’s a lot of respect between Chad and Pharrell but it seems like there’s also a growing space present.

On a side note, Lupe Fiasco just released a song where he raps over the beat from J. Cole’s “Everybody Dies.” He renamed it to N.E.R.D., which stands for No (One) Ever Really Dies.
