While talking to Complex, Pharrell gave Don Toliver immense praise for his work.
At midnight on Friday, Don Toliver delivered their second studio album, Life Of A Don. The project began to receive raves from devoted fans shortly after it was released, and the buzz continued to build throughout the weekend.
As the 27-year-old enjoys his time in the spotlight, some have started looking for past interviews, including one in which Toliver receives the highest praise from industry legend Pharrell Williams. In the video, Williams can be seen in a virtual session with Complex News. When asked who he’s currently listening to and getting inspired by, the producer didn’t hesitate to quote Don Toliver.
“I think Don Toliver, I think he’s special, he’s something else” Says the mega producer. When asked by the interviewer about what he sees in the Houston native, Pharrell replied: “His tone is super unique, his choice, melodies and harmonies is like, something else. He’s older than his physical age too, just his melody choices and the things he chooses to talk about. ”
“I heard ‘No Idea’ for the first time and I thought, ‘Who is this guy?’ Shit just blew my mind, I listened to it for a month.” Although some are seeing the video for the first time now, Toliver actually retweeted the Complex News interview in December 2020.
Toliver also never shies away from praising talent when he sees him. He recently described working with Kanye West as a “crazy blessing.”
