Not many people had a bigger year in entertainment than Pharrell Williams in 2013. The 40-year-old producer/rapper/singer/songwriter/fashion designer was everywhere this year, from award shows, covering magazines, hits all over the charts, scoring music for movies, and many business ventures outside of music. Pharrell composed the soundtrack to the movie Despicable Me and he has worked with almost nearly everyone in the industry from Miley Cyrus, Frank Ocean, Daft Punk, T.I., Solange Knowles, Mac Miller, Robin Thicke, Kanye West. Pharrell appeared alongside T.I. on Robin Thicke's hit single "Blurred Lines". The song has been a worldwide hit, has peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Pharrell's third Billboard Hot 100 number one single. Plus Pharrell released the first 24-hour music video to his Despicable Me 2 collaboration song, "Happy". With all of these accomplishments in 2013, GQ recognized Pharrell as one of their 5 people selected for the “Man of the Year” cover, which is well deserved.
I definitely didn't see this coming. We know Lil Wayne is constantly building his roster and label with new artists but was there ever a day you could picture him signing Paris Hilton? Yes, you read that correctly. She has a new deal with Cash Money Records to release her second album. Wait, I thought the first album was a joke?! Well Paris' new label mates will include Busta Rhymes, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and of course Lil Wayne, according to Rap-Up.com. And Paris describes this album as house music. Are you anticipating come Lil Wayne/Nicki collabos for this album?
