It's Free Ticket Tuesday, and although we aren't giving away tickets this week, we are giving away something better: a N.E.R.D. bonus pack! Featuring 16 of the band's most popular songs, including b-sides and remixes, the prize pack consists of three albums: The Best of N.E.R.D, Fly or Die and In Search Of. If you're lucky, you will receive this great package. Also, four runners-up will receive the Best Of, so enter now!
N.E.R.D. was formed in 2001 by the Neptunes' pop/hip-hop collaborators Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shae Haley. Their debut album, In Search Of, was released globally in 2002 after being reworked with live instrumentation. The band's second album, Fly or Die, was released in 2004, and Best Of comes out today, so you get the drop on other rap-rock fiends.
Tell us what your favorite Neptunes/Pharrell production is and why, and be sure to leave your name and e-mail address.
