    Get Lit: Being Young, by Astrid Young

    N.E.R.D.: Seeing Sounds

    N.E.R.D.'s third album is the compact-disc equivalent of an ad campaign trying to appeal to the Red Bull/BlackBerry generation. "We gotta make it passionate," you can almost hear Pharrell telling the guys in the studio: "And retro! And political! Yo...
