[Produced by HypeBeast | HBTV]
[Released May 2012]
Pharrell is a major role model of mine for a number of reasons: he personifies my [fuckconservatism] state of mind, he exudes a creative energy 24/7, and he’s a BOSS (in the coolest, laid-back kind of way). He touches on some really cool points in this video. Skip to 1:09 to get the good stuff.
“I think with everything you can do, you gotta have a taste and a tone. I don’t think that I’ve quite mastered it, but I’ve work really hard at it. And I got really good people around me too. You know what I’m saying, it can’t just be all you. You’re not gonna be a master of all trades. I just try to be, like, really good at a couple of things and just keep really smart people around me to, you know, challenge me.” - Pharrell Williams
It’s nice hearing him say that he hasn’t quite mastered his taste and tone just yet. It shows me that it’s not all about having every detail right by the age of 25. It’s just about how much and how hard you work at it.
