Personal Quote:

I'm a producer. I'm a musician. And my job is to come in and, you know, put - you know, I treat all of the artists that I work with, like, you know, the way da Vinci was looking at Mona Lisa, you know, there's an interesting backdrop. See more »


Lead vocalist of the hip hop group N.E.R.D. (No One Ever really Dies) along with Neptunes partner Chad Hugo and rapper Shay. See more »


Just about every song he produces starts with a 4-count in some way. Notable examples are "Happy" "Frontin" "Milkshake" and "Drop it Like It's Hot" See more »
