Snoop Lion Says He Discovered Pharrell
Snoop Lion claims he discovered Pharrell Williams.
The "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper has credited himself with helping The Neptunes producer become one of the biggest names in music by taking a chance on him when he was up and coming.
Snoop - formerly known as Snoop Dogg - told GQ magazine, "When I worked with Pharrell, nobody knew what I was doing but me. I knew what he would do. Everybody laughed and said, 'You working with him?' And when's the hit? BOOM, BOOM BOOM, BOOM BOOM! I know what I'm talking about."
Snoop first collaborated with Pharrell and producing partner Chad Hugo in 2002 on his sixth studio album, Paid Tha Cost To Be Da Bo$$. The Neptunes were formed in 1992 but achieved breakthrough success in 1999, producing the single "Got Your Money" for Ol Dirty B*****d, although at that time they also already had ties to Snoop.
