Pharrell Breaks Secret Promise With Jay-Z?

Super producer Pharrell Williams is one of the most sought after producers, and he's been working with a bunch of big names in hip hop. He recently chopped it up with MTV about working with Jay-Z, Drake, Clipse, Rick Ross, and more. Check out the details he spilled.
On Drake: "We have [worked with him]. It was a great record."
On the Game: "It was crazy, because you walk in the studio and it's 15 to 20 7-foot dudes. All of his friends are giants. I'm in there like Webster. Like Emmanuel Lewis, looking up at everybody like, 'Yeah, OK, cool.' It was kinda otherworldly. Except me and my engineer, we're the only two regular humans. These guys are like giants. But the most creative sessions ever."

The Clipse: "I'm not sure what their plans are. Whatever they wanna do, we're always 100 percent onboard to help. They wanted to make a super street record for the last album, that's what we did. You know what it is about Pusha? He can make radio records if he wants. But what you have to love about the guy because he's such an artist, he wants to make 'Popular Demand' all day long. He wants to make that all day long. Listen, all Pusha wants to do is drive in a CL 600 drop, make 'Popular Demand' all day and count money. He may be mad at me for saying that, but it's really all I think about when I think about him. There's so many other aspects to his life, but the guy, that's what he likes. That's why in my opinion he has some of the most venomous 16's. His 16's are crazy, because of his affinity for spending money, fast cars and rap."

On Rick Ross: "Puff just said something to me last night [about Ross' album]. You can only imagine where that's going. Great places."
On Fat Joe: "Fat Joe? Any time. Joey Crack has been in the game for a long time, since 'Flow Joe.' He's had a run. You cannot count him out. Every time you're prepared to, he'll go and find one. He knows how to make a record."
On Jay-Z: "The guy is 40 and had a #1 record, and he sold more records than anybody in hip-hop at the time his album came out. And it's still selling. The one thing we're allowed to say [about our new collaboration] is he and I said that we're sworn to secrecy."
