Pharrell was recently interviewed by GQ for their “Legacy Project” issue, profiling the biggest tastemakers over the past year.

While the famed artist and producer had a lot to celebrate this past year, Pharrell said that he was disappointed in T.I.’s “Paperwork,” which he executive produced.

“I wasn’t happy about the T.I. situation. They did that record hoping for radio play, and they got nothing out of it…. Great, you got your No. 1 hip-hop song. But what does that do for your sales?,” leading many to believe that he was talking about “No Mediocre” and “About the Money.”

Pharrell added, “You want to be camouflage? Go ahead. Blend in. But we want to be that twinkle in the sky. And you might not be able to see that star now. But it’s daytime. Wait till it gets dark.”
