N.E.R.D and Wale Join Jay-Z on MuchOnDemand

Jay-Z brings along some friends for a special Halloween edition of MUCHONDEMAND. Pharrell Williams and Shea from N.E.R.D, and Jay-Z’s newest protégé Wale join the hip-hop mogul for a special MOD on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 4 p.m. ET.

VJ Sarah Taylor sits down with three generations of hip-hop royalty, talking about everything from music to fashion and how it feels to be the hottest rappers around.

World-famous producers and songwriters Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, over the course of their decade-long career, have changed the course of music. It started with the redefining of hip-hop, the two of them wielding a minimalist, synthesized palette and a limitless imagination to create a sound that was as sophisticated and elegant as it was raw and rhythmic. Since then, Pharrell has gone on to a successful solo career, collaborating with some of the biggest artists including Jay-Z, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Brittney Spears, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani and Busta Rhymes. N.E.R.D’s latest studio album Seeing Sounds produced such hit singles as “Everyone Nose (All The Girls Standing In The Line For The Bathroom)” and “Spaz.”

American hip-hop artist Wale first made his mark in 2006, with his song “Dig Dug (Shake It).” Featured as the house band for the 2009 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS, Wale releases his first full length album, Attention: Deficit, November 10. The album features collaborations with Lady Gaga, Jazmine Sullivan, Gucci Mane, Bun B, Marsha Ambrosious and Pharrell
