NERD Comes To A Halt

Published: 2005-03-22
According to reports that come from across the pond, alt-rap group NERD have decided to call it quits. The group, comprised of the ubiquitous Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay, apparently broke apart after disputes with their record label. By way of BBC Radio 1 and NME, it's been reported that Williams had this to say on the subject during a radio interview:

"NERD is dead. I don't agree with the management at Virgin Records so we're done. Me and Chad (Hugo) still do what we do in the studio, Shay is still our best friend, you know, perhaps we'll do some music for our fans and leak it to the internet or something, who knows?"

What Williams meant by "still do what we do in the studio" is that production team, The Neptunes, will still continue to do what they do in the studio. That is, work magic with the likes of everyone from Britney Spears to Ice Cube to Air and Kelis. Fans also need not worry, because Pharrell will probably be as omnipresent as ever (possibly even more so), despite the fact that there are no more NERD albums to be had.
