Generic list post: Fake Neptunes edition

Question of the day: which rap blogger once posted a picture of Pharrell & A Bathing Ape's (former) owner Nigo and billed it as Pharrell Williams & Chad Hugo? Whilst your mulling the answer over, take a gander at this generic list of Pharrell & Chad knock-offs that knock way harder than Sean Price's Fake Neptune. Alternative post title: thank you Mario Winans and XL, you very competent hacks.

Yukmouth - Stuntastic (2003)
Black Rob ft. Lil' Kim - Espacio (2000)
Black Rob ft. Diddy - Knock 'Em Out (2005)
Loon ft. Kelis - How You Want That? (2003)
504 Boyz - Get Back (2002)
Curren$y - Hotspitta (2003?)
Curren$y - Scared Of Monstas (2009)
Max B ft. Jim Jones & Mel Matrix - Sour Diesel (2006)
Foxy Brown - Stylin' (2002)
E-40 ft. The Clipse - Quarterbackin' (2003)
Turf Talk ft. Ya Boy & Bailey - Sav Out (2004)
Benzino - Rock The Party (2003)
Pusha-T ft. Kelly Rowland - Let Me Love You (2013)
Mac Dre - That's Wusup (2004)
Mac Dre & Mac Mall ft. Rydah J. Klyde - Giggin' (2005)

Feel like Jermaine Dupri had at least one great Neptunes rip-off beat too but I'll be damned if I can remember its title and/or benefactor at the moment.

40 had One Night Stand off the same album too, you can tell its Rick though.

One of the New Content Cartel?

Teriyaki Boyz > Outkast said...

Jeff Weiss?

Serious question: was the Giggin' video the absolute pinnacle of rap music?

ILX Snitch said...

There's a pretty good one on Shyne's first album. Probably another Mario Winnans beat?

Gotta be Soderberg?

I think JD did 'What Da Hook Gon Be' for Murphy Lee which sounds kinda Neptunes-ish ?

Good call.

Dead @ Kelis ending up on bootleg Neptunes production.

Bob said...

Jermaine Dupri had a Neptunes song with Clipse

Danny said...

Espacio is one of the best Bad Boy songs ever. Also Fake Neptune is still sick

Trev said...

What about Birdman and Diddy's 'Do That'? Even has fake Kelis vox

I always thought Nasty Bitch by Trina was a Neptunes beat with Pharrell ad libs. Turns out I was wrong on both counts.
