“Pharrell is the king of drip!!” the Atlanta rapper tweeted on Sunday (Jan. 16). “How the hell he do that shit for so long?” Nearly 24 hours later, the “Lemonade” star took to Twitter to provide an answer.
“From Virginia..,” he explained before using a double entendre that replied to the question and referenced his Virginia-based festival. “It’s Something in the Water.”
Aside from producing beats and making records, Williams tapped into the fashion world and has since been making his mark. He founded his Billionaire Boys Club brand in 2003 and the Ice Cream streetwear line in 2005. Nearly a decade later, the singer, who is also the co-owner of the denim brand G-Star, partnered with Adidas to release both sneakers and clothing under the brand name Humanrace. He also has secured collaborations with the likes of Louis Vuitton and Chanel, who he recently praised for their efforts to promote diversity.
“We’ve been mutually supportive of each other, and I have to say, it’s beautiful to see the color, so much color, being injected into the brand,” he said last month while attending a masterclass at the French luxury brand‘s new craftsmanship hub in Paris. “Now, you’re really feeling the effort to be inclusive of human beings.”
“Yeah, I wanna fuck with Pharrell…I just wanna work with him,” he told XXL. He added, “He just a creative-ass motherfucker… He ain’t lost the touch… And I like that ‘Stir Fry’ song.”
