Mikey Fresh caught up with Skateboard P earlier this week at a private viewing for the upcoming Fall/Holiday line of BBC and his new BEE line. P spoke on the upcoming Pink Slime project with Mac Miller that he will be producing, upcoming collaborations with other artists and more.
The first leak off Pink Slime caught a lot of people off guard.
Pharrell: It’s crazy and I know Mac is going to do great things. I’m happy for him. I was just looking at his movement and what he’s doing online. I feel like I haven’t linked with enough independent kids that are doing it for themselves.
What really drew you to Mac in the first place?
I watched what he did on his own and thought that as interesting. I just felt like I had to do something with him. Pink Slim is his project, and I’m producing it but none of the records go on unless we’re both feeling it. Mac’s like a concert, festival centric kid. And we got them records, man.
Even from just hearing the first joint, “Onaroll.” I don’t want to say it’s nostalgic Neptunes but it gives you that feeling.
It’s that hype sh*t. I missed music so much. I was away for so long on the road. But I’m back in the studio now.
How did you feel about Mac dropping the record straight through Twitter?
They’re crazy with that. And wait until you see the artwork. Me and Mac did like 10 records.
Can you fill us in on any other big record that you’ve produced recently?
New Frank Ocean, a bunch of sh*t. New Usher. “Twisted” is a beast. I did some for A$AP, too. But I did a bunch of sh-t, Adam lambert, Jason Derulo.
What about your artist, Buddy? We loved his first video.
We’re in the middle of Buddy’s project right now. His album is so raw. He’s really one of the ONES. We got one that’s called “Inspire.” It’s like straight Cali Kush, West Cost music. The beat sounds like what Cali Kush smells like.
