They Wish?

Click here to read about Akon and Nelly talking about making a super group with Pharrell.

Maybe it's possible, but I have lost respect for Nelly since his comeback single lacked any actual rapping. Mostly it's just he and Fergie shouting and that shouting being played at a bunch of different speeds. I enjoy my share of high-production-value dance songs, but that's not really what I want to hear from Nelly. As for Akon, he has been accused of attempting to make his past appear more criminal, in order to build credibility. Lying about jail time to try to seem "cool"? Ew...
But I don't know, "Hot In Herre" was a huge success so maybe Pharrell would work with those guys...

Does Pharrell know about this? Somehow I don't see this being more than just a thought in Nelly & Akon's mind. I could see him doing some production work with them, being featured on a song or something, but a supergroup? I like Nelly and all, but them two are beneath him. And isn't CRS the up and coming hip hop supergroup? Now that's what you call a mind-blowing talented trio.

I agree with jersey girl.
Pharrell is already involved with one "supergroup" (CRS). Not to mention Nelly is falling off at a rapid pace and Akon's days are numbered. Pharrell was here before them and he'll be here after them.
