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.
Last night, Snoop Dogg hosted the BET Hip Hop Awards. To be honest, I only remember about 3 awards given the entire night, one being the I Am Hip Hop Award to Mc Lyte, which was well-deserved. Now even though I got lost in the mist of the performances and cyphers of the show, I think the show won me with the cyphers. In my opinion, I enjoyed Slaughterhouse's cypher, as well as TDE...Kendrick Lamar and his crew. But remember when I told you Kevin Hart would be in the cypher? Well let's just say I teared up laughing so hard at Kevin and his Real Husbands of Hollywood cypher. Have you seen it? Check it out as well as some of the other cypher. But for real, who else won an award? Here's Slaughterhouse's cypher HERE!
