Pharrell Williams and Ray Lewis 'Natural Born Hitters' (mixtape)
Published Aug 23, 2013Pharrell Williams's big year has seen him team up with the likes of Daft Punk and Robin Thicke, but the Neptunes producer's latest collaborative effort surprisingly has him working with former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. Made up of inspirational speeches and big beats, the pair's Natural Born Hitters freelease is now up for grabs.
The three-song quickie starts off with the eerie, trap-driven "Training," where Pharrell's spooky synth work envelopes championship-seeking lines like "do you have that real look in your eye" and "did I give it everything I got." "Practice" is a wobblier dancehall/gopsel hybrid, while "Pregame" places a rant about being a dominator amidst a most triumphant beat.
