Pharrell gives Rick Ross props

The quality of rap artists had been dwindling for some time until Nas ended up coining the "hip hop is dead" phrase. In the time since that statement, a number of rappers have been stepping their skills up. At the same time, many new rappers have emerged and have been met with critical acclaim.

Rick Ross emerged in the months before "hip hop is dead." When he first debuted, many saw Rick Ross as another Southern rapper. But, following the success of Trilla and his feud with 50 Cent, people realized he was the real deal. Five years since the release of his debut album, Rick Ross is one of hip hop's biggest names.

Pharrell has long been one of the most critically-acclaimed producers in the game. The Virginia native is also credited as a decent rapper and a good singer. But, over the past few years, he has been more on the production side of things. While he has been out of the spotlight, Pharrell is still following the game and he says hip hop is in a good place.

Unlike many, Pharrell supports Rick Ross and his movement, he stated music changes over the years and the music has changed. Pharrell said it is rare to have someone come out and dominate the way Rick Ross has over the past few years. While people say what they want to about Rick Ross, Pharrell said his music is authentic.
