Synopsis: In the 52nd episode of Columbia House Party, we’re joined by Densil McFarlane of The OBGMs to discuss N.E.R.D.’s Fly or Die.
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by Densil McFarlane of The OBGMs (@theobgms) to discuss N.E.R.D.’s 2004 album Fly or Die. Obscured to some degree by the immense success of the group as producers (The Neptunes) and Pharrell Williams’ eventual solo work, N.E.R.D. is more than deserving of their own oxygen as a bridge between hip hop and rock. Find out more about the influence N.E.R.D. had on Denz, the irritating, if predictable, critical response to Fly or Die, and why the first two N.E.R.D. albums sound like they could have come out last year on this week’s podcast.
