MediaTakeout.com is hearing rumors that music producer Pharrell isn't as hot as he once was. Word around the industry is that the producer, who once charged six-figures for each beat is now charging as little as $20,000.
Dang the music industry really isn't what it used to be. But real talk - we're waiting for the price to drop to about $100 so that we can have him make us a personal ringtone....
didn't he produce jays blue magic? maybe he can make a comeback like timbo and swizz beats.
I think that is why Timberland went away for awile. I know Ginuwine is *** at him and Timerberlake. He stole his career. Neptune beats all sound the same.
Good cause that Blue Magic song was HORRIBLE! The worse ***. I hope this is true.
I still think he is a freak
80%....*** thats alot...i just cant see him going down like that....
Ya'll need to stop. His *** ain't doing it like that!!!
Holla at your GIRL!!!
TIMES ARE HARD...GOOD LUCK
Forreal MTO drop it down to $100 and we can talk!
WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A RECESSION.
HE'S VERY TALENETED.. SO WHAT IF HE MAY NOT BE AS HOT AS HE ONCE WAS...ISN'T IT LIKE THIS IN THE BIZ THO?...ONE MINUTE UR HOT, THE NEXT MINUTE IT'S SOMEONE ELSE, THEN THE SAME PERSON IS HOT ONCE AGAIN....THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS!!
WHY WOULD A PRODUCER CHARGE A PRICE OF A HOME FOR A *** BEAT ANYWAY? AND THERES OTHER PRODUCERS OUT THERE JUST AS TALENTED AND THEY CHARGE HALF OF WHAT HE'S CHARGING FOLKS? DID YOU REALIZE THE ONLY PEOPLE BUYING PHARREL BEATS ARE JAY-Z AND SNOOP, NOT TOO MANY OTHER FOLKS CAN AFFORD THEM HIGH *** BEATS ANYWAY TO ALL PRODUCERS OUT THERE, STOP CHARGING SO *** MUCH MAYBE YOU WILL GET MORE CLIENTS!!
***, when is *** going to get better!! This is horrible
LLLLOOOOLLL!! TIMES IS HARD ON THE BLVD HUH?
MAYBE THOSE HIDEOUS ICE CREAM SNEAKERS WILL GO FOR HALF OFF TOO!
UGLY A$$ SHOES!! UGGH!
There my baby go!!! Pharrell where have you been?? I hope this ain't true either, but then listening to some of the music thats out now.....
When your hot you are hot. When you are not people run you down.
oh please i dont believe this story, yes the music business is bad right now i think the neptunes has deliberately taken a break and gradually comin back out ie blue magic... my husband is not goin down like this
so my mans is still hot!
PHARE[SPAM] say it isn't s[SPAM]!!!! I Love U...lol
Every producer is only as hott as his last hit song. I'm surprised that he made it for this many years. Everyone has their time. The style of music P makes is not what's poppin right now. He may need to get with some "real" hip-hop artists and take things back to the old school. Get back to some head nod music. The grown fans of hip-hop can't take this bouncy, soldier boy bullsh*t for too much longer. I'm not a hater but I HATE the radio, Pherelle at least makes some real sh#t when can listen to like "What happened to that boy"? "Drop it like it's hott", and a few more, but yall dig me. 1
headline...RUMOR..ur killn me..lovn 4real and ***.e.r.d...
HE BETTER HURRY UP AND GET TEYANA TAYLOR ON A ROLL SO HE CAN START MAKING SOME DOE!!!
Okay he lowered his beats, how about because he is whack. All the way down to his music and waffle shoes. I never liked Pharrell don't get me wrong I like ppl who are different, but Missy has taken that spot. She is dope, he is not. Point Blank! I don't know if he is growing broke like I said he never tried to appeal to mofo like me anyway, selling WAFFLE skateboard sneakers at $195, making space music and ***...he was trying to sell that ish to them YT ppl...so why should I care about him...Uncle Tom is on his own.
Must be geting ready to drop a album and is trying to get his sound back out there. Someone should tell him "Blue Magic" sucked ***!
I'm a big Pharrell fan, but I hope they're using this time away from the spotlight to rejuevenate their talents. Their beats were starting to sound the same.
@***: Pharrell is no Uncle Tom dude was on some different ish and all races were rocking them ice creams and BBC gear. There's enough room for more than one artist that's different.
"we're waiting for the price to drop to about $100 so that we can have him make us a personal ringtone...."
LOL @ MTO, thats not nice
@cat4everrr that wasn't nice but really funny!
LMAO! ... I'm waiting for them to give me the x-mas special -50 bucks ... wonder if they do car alarms, doorbells, personalized greeting cards, etc. hey it's $ :-) ...
But on the real I love the neptunes!
Most industries aren't doing what they did as little as a year ago. Get out and vote in '08! It DOES make a difference.
*** Sign on and become part of a $7 billion dollar industry and create 7 income streams complete with medical benefits and tax write-offs. We're not starving! ***
skateboard p is already rich and his production skills are the best in the game he will never fall off look at his catalog, beautiful,change clothes,drop it like its hot,etc etc.
dang i loved pharrel too....
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS TALKIN ABOUT THIS N*GGA GOT A LOT OF CREDIBILITY AND HE STILL RELEVANT IN THIS INDUSTRY. HE GOT MONEY STILL POURING OUT OF HIS ASSH*LE. MTO STOP MAKING UP S*IT.
i wld cop a few mate
oh and yeah do u give student discount too?!
i got a fu./ckin ID
skateboard p is still the sh!t when it comes to production...he's the only dude out that actually makes his own beats...and doesn't just put his name on sh!t (like timbaland and swizz beats)
but he should lower his *** prices cuz six figures is crazy money...i'm just sayin'
If I was Pharell, I would go str8t to whitey! Get me somebody like Pink and Fergie or even Clay Aiken. ***, I'd make a comeback with the backstreet boys!! I would say, negroes!! Kiss my behind!! Just like Timberland get paid by using white artists!!! So will I!! Maybe I would do a beat for T-Pain or Kanye, but other than that, bring me my white artists!! Let me get that KTU and Z100 airplay!! That's where the real money's at!!!
MTO don't get it twisted, I saw him on TV with this ***.E.R.D. chain on. It looked like he had that sh*t plugged into a wall or something. Then he had on a diamond wonder woman bracelett with all kinds of colored jewels, in a white Phantom, talkin greasy about how most catz will never touch his level of paper. That's what Mr. Me Too was about.
He will catch his swagger back, he just needs to go back to 99, 00, 01, 02 where he was doing trax for everybody and they momz. 1
that wasnt funny lol
pharrell wasnt sh$t anyway you all should have know that already
@Reallytho They should be paying you for that info lol!!!!!
I'm not a fan but I can't say Pharrell wasn't ***. For years it was the Neptunes(and Dre of course) shaping the industry sound and so much so that companies were selling Neptune sound sets for hundreds. It's easier to make your own beats these days beacuse everybody is using computers and the dirty south heavy bass sound ,So a producer is not as valuable to the average rapper. Plus the market is soft anyway and everbody is scaling down.
these dumb ***!ggas need to learn from micheal jackson and mc.hammer...no matter how much money you have you keep spending like an a$s and you will eventually be broke! i believe this story,you keep buying them lambos and throwing million dollar party off your beat money,the music will stop playing soon!
I dnt believe this one bit... pharrell beats are sooo hot nobody has to rap or sing over.. it is hot all on it's on........ period. plus he making hella cash from ice creams his clothing line.. so mto can you give me a story that i can actually believe.
My baby will make it back give him some time.
THIS IS DEFINELTEY ONE OF MTO RUMORS....
He needs to drop the price of his clothes while he is at it........
I don't think its the beats. I think everyone got tired of him singing on every track. "Excuse me miss..." It got re-tired like a throw back jersey.
What really happened is the 10 year old making these beats on that Fisher price Keyboard finally moved on to middle school and left the neptunes.
whaAaAt eVvVer!!!! *in valley gurl voice* my man hOter all the time pharrell is ageless and a timeless and a musical genius so lick a dik MTO 4real
Everybody has their time to shine, right now it's just not his. At one point, he was on everybody's jam...clockin major figures. Now it's other producers time to shine.....
guess them beats aint spaced out anymore. the price just came down to earth. kelis new all along the beats was sounding recycled thats why she broke out.
I don't think this is true.
BLACK PEOPLE CAN DO MORE THAN JUST RAP AND R&B!!!
GO SEE FOR YOURSELF
Oh whatever! If it's true, what's it to you ANYWAY MTO? Pharrell is a great producer, actually he and Timbaland are my two faves. He has been doing his thing for years, and no one can stay on top forever. But, personally, I think this story is completely false.
THAT WHY HE HUSTLE AND SMEEL GREEN MONEY FO SHO
DUDE IS ON SOME SERIOUS DRUGS, WHO THE FCK IN THEIR RIGHT MIND IS PAYING A MILLION DOLLARS FOR A FCKING BEAT??!! IF I WAS AN ARTIST, I WOULDN'T EVEN LOOK IN HIS DIRECTION. THAT SH!T OFF THE WALL IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!
He can always make another album for Gwen Stefani wack azz.
6 figures = hundred thousand(s)
Point blank dude is played out!!!
Its supply and demand.and right now he "AINT" in demand.Timbos Ghost producer danja is the HNIC now
another one i dont believe...keep um comin MTO..
i mean at least he aint chargin no $50... 20 grand is still aight
um..he's aint in the billonaire boys club no more?
Pharrell can get it Hot or Not. He still hot to me. Let me get a beat. You know the other kind. LOL
