Although the first day of Something in the Water got washed out by inclement weather, Pharrell’s inaugural festival in his hometown was nothing short of legendary.
Skateboard P pulled out all the tricks out his hat for his highly anticipated set with Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Fam-lay, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, and Usher. But the best part of his entire set was when he performed his hit single, “Frontin” and JAY-Z came out to perform his verse.
After spitting his verse, Hov briefly took over to perform The Black Album standout “PSA.” Fresh off the heels of his B-Sides 2 performance at the opening night of Webster Hall, Jigga performed a handful of fan favorites. But what made his surprise appearance even more savory was when the Brooklyn mogul used “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” to pay homage to Pharrell’s hometown.
The entire Something in the Water crowd at Virginia Beach soaked up the opening line, “H to the Izz-O, V to the Izz-A, Fo Shizzle, my nizzle used to dribble down in VA.”
