‘In Case You Missed It’—Multi-Million Dollar Hip-Hop Producer Pharrell Tries to Change Education

Super Producer Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D is well known for his out-of-the-box music production. Now Pharrell is tackling education and getting students more involved in learning about current issues and events.   Pharrell has started a news and entertainment website for teens called “Kidult.com.” Kidult is highly energetic and fun.  If I had to describe it I would call it CNN for teenagers. Check out this interview Parrell gives on Perry’s Principles where he outlines how education and the mentorship of his high school band teacher changed his life.
