Pharrell Talks To Fast Company Magazine

As with most of the time this guy talks, we listen.

Williams is a fan of what he calls tapping in: being open to the kinds of peripheral ideas that lead to innovation. It requires an environment that permits fixation--the antithesis of multitasking--so that you have the ability to, as he puts it, "be quiet and absorb." And walking into the hushed lounge on the floor below the Miami recording studio is not unlike entering a Zendo. Pleasant people--some plugged into laptops, some bustling about--work in near silence. It appears to be, as Williams describes it, "an extremely well-disciplined environment," and his preternatural calm trickles down. Shapiro says that the i am OTHER team makes it possible for "P to focus on the big picture and thought-provoking ideas. They fill in the blanks. They prioritize and get shit done."

Day In The Life Of Nike C.E.O. Mark Parker

Very cool.

A fanatical devotion to sneaker design and a technical fluency rare among CEOs propelled the 58-year-old Nike lifer to the top perch of the footwear and apparel giant, which has reached annual revenues of $24 billion, up 60 percent since he was appointed in 2006. "Have you heard the Japanese word otaku?" he muses. "It means being deeply obsessed by the details of something. I relate to that."

NY Mag's "My Life As A Young Thug" Written By Mike Tyson

Couple weeks old but so good.

We were beefing with these guys called the Puma Boys. It was 1976, and I lived in Brownsville, Brooklyn, and these guys were from my neighborhood. At that time I was running with a Rutland Road crew called the Cats, a bunch of Caribbean guys from nearby Crown Heights. We were a burglary team, and some of our gangster friends had an altercation with the Puma Boys, so we were going to the park to back them up. We normally didn’t deal with guns, but these were our friends, so we stole a bunch of shit: some pistols, a .357 Magnum, and a long M1 rifle with a bayonet attached from World War II. You never knew what you’d find when you broke into people’s houses.

Rick Rubin Talks New Eminem Album w/ Complex

Getting into this now. Rick is the best.

We worked like a tag team. We had two rooms set up at the Shangri-la Studio in Malibu. In one room we were building beats and in the other room he was doing vocals. Anytime he would have a vocal thing together, he’d bring it in and play it for me and we would talk about it. Anytime I would have a new version of a beat or change in a beat or further developed a beat, I would call him in and he would listen to it and say what he liked and what he didn’t. We just kinda worked together, back and forth.
