N.E.R.D. recorded with LUPE FIASCO in Manchester? This is madness. It’s right here in the electronic press kit (EPK) for the LP Nothing. I really loved N.E.R.D when they first came out – even down to the tissue paper packaging in the CD and the hidden geek culture elements of video gaming and the Vulcan salute. I was jazzed when they deleted the album, after such a massive single with Lapdance, to re-release it with a live band doing the tracks instead of full on computer production – a brave move, I thought, an alternate-reality take with tracks even changed round in order. But nothing they ever did since then really caught my attention. Maybe I was just getting old.
