Hip Online spoke with N.E.R.D. frontman Shay about his debut alongside the guys from the Neptunes. Speaking of the group’s different styles, but consistent content, Shay said, “We love this music and we wanted it like our lives and our lives are real. Coming from Virginia, it’s a varied area but at the same time there is a lot going on. It’s a very influential town. You have your grits, surfers, and hip hoppers, but there isn’t much to do here. So people find anything to get into from inhaling freon from a generator or going to clubs. That is what we grew up on and that is what we saw so we wanted to vent on record.”
