Ep.171 - The Neptunes

On Ep.171 of DITD: A retrospective on the production duo, The Neptunes.
One of the most prolific names in Hip-Hop production, The Neptunes: Pharrell Williams & Chad Hugo, could work with anybody in the mainstream and somehow make it a bop. They are responsible for birthing careers, revitalising careers and epitomise why the 00s were fucking weird.
