In the 38 odd years that Pharrell Williams has been on the planet; he has achieved a fair bit and evidently accumulated enough material for a book; yup! the talented rapper was spotted yesterday in Los Angeles promoting his book “Places and Spaces I’ve Been” via a public book signing at the Book Marc bookstore.
I don’t know the context but Pharrell spoke on interviewing Jay-Z and this is what he had to say “If you look at like a Jay-Z for example, the thing that tore most people down is what he put on his back and sort of made it make sense, and set an example for what adversity is meant to do in our lifetime. So, it was cool to interview him because he is a living manifestation of my view, that is essentially everything is mind over matter, and with the right determination and the right skill-set, there’s no reason why you can’t figure it out. Then you find your purpose, and that’s a guy who’s found his purpose.”
The next book signing will be in New York at the BBC Flagship Store on November 7th, 2012 from 7PM-9PM then Paris on November 10th at Colette from 4PM-6PM.
