N.E.R.D., In Search Of… I could of chosen Nas, Biggie, Tupac, Tragically Hip, Jay-Z, Wutang, or even DMX etc, but the real album that I really felt had an affect on me was NERD “In Search Of”. Little did I ever know that this influential group was ahead of its time. A lot of people don’t know that Timberland and The Neptunes were one group at one point in time, all hailing from VA. Ten years ago you couldn’t change your radio station without hearing a Neptune or Timberland production. I have a good ear for talent and I knew these brothers were destined for greatness. I had the opportunity to meet Pharrell and hang out with Shae and Chad. I still have the photos to this very day. I think it’s great to see artists that you grew up with and maybe even related to, become successful and do great things for their community and the world. That album affects me in many ways, as soon as hear any track from that album, I am taken on a ride threw memory lane. They never stick to the rules they make their own, they stay different while everyone stays the same. N.E.R.D. – Nothing Ever Really Dies, we just return to where we once came from.
