The man will tell you himself: Pharrell is a producer first. Rapping is likely a skill he'd humbly not place among his best. But when he goes for it like he did in January on Rick Ross' "MMG The World is Ours," with that classy swag talk, he's right up there. He's got a nice batch of features under his designer belt. Remember the way he kicked off Snoop's "Drop It Like It's Hot"? Pharrell's for real.
