Pharrell got a surprise visit from one very famous fan during his Q&A at Design Miami 2012 during Art Basel. While promoting his book Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve Been, The Neptunes producer received a question from Kanye West, who asked him how he developed such a high taste level and influenced so many people.
“Mr. West, how you doing? Thanks for joining us,” said Skateboard P before answering the question.
“When you step into this real world of art, design, and fashion, you realize that all great things are made from a functional viewpoint first,” he said. “And that was one of the greatest lessons I had to learn.”
