Zac Crain of the Dallas Observer caught up with N.E.R.D. member Chad Hugo who admitted his partnership with Pharrell Williams didn’t mesh right away. “Personality-wise, no,” Hugo admitted. “I mean, sorta. Here’s how it was: When we were in school, he used to bang on the cafeteria table, and he used to rhyme; he used to rap. I’d hook up at my mom’s house. Had this cheap little studio and I’d do beats and write. Then he started doing beats. It was kinda weird, you know what I mean, but at the same time it was good. I guess, ultimately, we learned from each other. Musically, we’ve always clicked. Over a time, it’s been like some kind of brotherhood, I guess.”
