So we give you the full Neptunes “The Other Side of the Planet” collection with features by Latrelle, Clipse, Slim Thug, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Bow Wow, Foxy Brown, Jay-Z, Usher, Gwen Stefani, Cole, Q-Tip, Fam-Lay, Robin Thicke, Kenna, Ray J, Kelis, T.I., Pitbull, Ludacris, N*E*R*D, Fabolous, Faith Evans, Common, Madonna, Nivea, NORE, Joe, Ice Cube, Gucci Mane, Diddy, Cris Cab, Loon, Game, ODB and many many more.
Just as we bring the regular series, as well as the instrumentals, we also wanted to do something for the DJ’s and folks out there like like to do their thing with mixes.

Cory Townes: About a week ago, I introduced you all to a project that my friend and fellow music enthusiast Nylles of CSNoWheaties.com were going to be releasing tonight. “The Neptunes: The Other Side Of The Planet” chronicles the 20+ year career of music pioneers Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, better known as “The Neptunes”. From early production credits with Teddy Riley and SWV, to pop success with Madonna and Britney Spears, to revolutionizing the hip hop industry with collaborations with Jay-Z, N.O.R.E, and The Clipse, this project will highlight the diversity of the Neptunes sound. This is something that we put a lot of work into, and I have to thank Nylles in advance for everything he’s done on this project, the brother is talented. But we wanted to do this project for no other reason but for the people. I know it sounds cliche, but it’s a cool feeling to connect with people who have a love and appreciation for music that I do. I’ve wanted to do a project about the Neptunes for the last couple of years, but I didn’t know where to start. So connecting with Nylles on this might have been fate, or just chance, nonetheless it was welcomed.
So since we figured it would be pretty obnoxious to release over 1,150+ songs at one time, Nylles and I decided to do this collection in volumes, which would be broken up in two different parts. We figured this would give you all time to remove the clutter from your iTunes to make way for it. It will be released bi-weekly, at our discretion, and will include not only collaborative efforts, but original and never before heard songs, tracks from their band N*E*R*D, and an instrumental pack. And you can be sure to catch these projects exclusively on our sites first before you see them on your favorite websites and blogs.
Clutch: The Neptunes. Pharrell Williams & Chad Hugo. A musical force that I can say has easily changed my life in more ways than one. Which is why I wanted to go ahead and be the muscle behind this project because it is something that I’ve wanted to do for a long while. Upon curating this series it took time and a lot of effort to bring it all together but I am grateful that I got Cory’s energy to keep this all going. The Neptunes have worked with almost every artist in pop rock and urban music and their work expands longer than most producers credits and accolades which is why we decided to craft it into a series that will drop every other week. Few have ever tried to attempt a task as big as this, but I’m happy to say that our work has paid off. With that being said, on behalf of Cory and CoryTownes.com and myself of CSNW.

In lieu of it getting much colder during this time of year, I’m sure you have become aware of this natural occurrence that some might call “Cuffing Season”, or Mating Season. The detail of this season are clear, to find someone that will be able to keep you warm all season long and in that time you might end up with a potential future with that person later on down the line. And since the holidays are right around the corner we figured out a little something for you guys.
Us CSNW are always thinking of new ways to keep you guys going so we had an idea. We wanted to create that PERFECT soundtrack to anyone and everyone’s seasonal cuffing activities so we planned out an EP, specially catered to making what “Cuffing Season” is all about. “The CUFF EP” is split into three parts, The Warm-Up, Make Your Move and last but definitely not least, The Cuff. Hopefully this will be the jumpstart to anyone who is having a hard time locating or making that move for a potential cuff this season. The project features appearances by Joe, Mr. Cheeks, Chris Brown, SWV, *N Sync, Dom Kennedy, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Frank Ocean, Cam’Ron, Mobb Deep, Craig David, Musiq Soulchild and many more. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it as much as we did coming up with it. Lookout for Volume 2 coming later in the season. Tracklist and where to download it below.
Back at it. Enjoy the Summer, it just may be your last.
