According to the Twitter of obscure Pharrell affiliate Fam-Lay, N.E.R.D. is planning to add an R&B singer named Rhea to the group. So is Pharrell taking a page out of the Will.I.Am playbook? You may recall Black Eyed Peas as a boring, harmless conscious-rap trio, before they scooped up Fergie for 2003’s Elephunk and became annoying radio staples. If we're all collectively cursing the existence of N.E.R.D. in three years, remember that it all started here. [Angry Ape via Prefixmag]
