(AllHipHop News) It appeared Chad Hugo was set to walk away from the recording industry.
“It’s official. I resign from the music business. Thanks again, people, for your support throughout all these years. Good luck/God bless!” tweeted Hugo on May 21.
Reports began to circulate that he was retiring.
However, a representative for the 43-year-old producer set the record straight with Pitchfork by calling the tweet a “bad joke.”
As one-half of The Neptunes with Pharrell Williams, Hugo’s career includes producing hit songs by Jay Z, Clipse, Noreaga, Ludacris, Fabolous, Usher, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, and more.
Hugo is also a member of the band N.E.R.D. which has released four studio albums – 2002’s In Search Of…, 2004’s Fly or Die, 2008’s Seeing Sounds, and 2010’s Nothing.
