Curren$y respects Pharrell Williams' tenacity. In honor of Black Music Month, the rapper chose to put the spotlight on the N.E.R.D. member for his musical versatility and determination to strive in the face of adversity.

"He represents all the different eras of music that we've been through," Curren$y tells The BoomBox. "He's very vocal about the struggle that he went through... just in the industry."

Pharrell, who collaborated with the New Orleans native on "Chasin' Paper," a song featured on his new album, The Stoned Immaculate, out today, also has a positive track from his catalog that resonates with Curren$y: "You Can Do It Too." "It's the greatest song he ever recorded," the Jet Life founder admits.

Witness Curren$y share his admiration for Pharrell and explain why The Sugarhill Gang's classic hit "Rapper's Delight" inspired him to get involved with hip-hop.
