Famous Alumni: The Neptunes

The Neptunes are a massively popular R&B and hip-hop production team who have worked with many of the most popular musical acts since the ’90s, including Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Nelly, Beyonce, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Usher, Nelly and more,

The duo behind the operation is Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, who met for the first time at a music summer camp for the gifted and talented in Virginia Beach when they were in middle school. Williams was a drummer at the camp and Hugo a tenor saxophone player. They both reportedly did not like the camp, which may have been one thing they bonded over but considering their estimated worth of more than $150 million their probably both glad they went to the camp.
