Jay-z - Pharrell and Jay-Z's music like a 'Stanley Kubrick movie'

Pharrell William has produced a track for Jay-Z which is like a ''Stanley Kubrick movie''.

The rapper and producer has joined forces with the hip-hop star to record for the follow up to his 'The Blueprint 3' album, and compares their work to the notorious filmmaker, famed for his attention to detail, perfectionism and tackling of grand concepts.

Referring to the director - whose projects include 'A Clockwork Orange' and 'The Shining' - Pharrell told radio station Hot 97: ''Rain Man is back, Rain Man is back. I gave him a straight up Stanley Kubrick movie.''

Jay-Z refers to himself as the Rain Man because of his ability to come up with rhyming lyrics effortlessly. The reference is a tongue-in-cheek comparison to the gifted autistic character Raymond Babbitt who has incredible memory recall, as portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the 1988 film 'Rain Man'.

Pharrell also listed other big names he is collaborating with, including Jay-Z's wife Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Busta Rhymes, Kendrick Lamar and No Doubt.

He also praised actress and singer Miley Cyrus' rapping skills after recording with her, insisting the former Disney star is ''different'' from other female artists in the industry.

He added: ''She can tell you everything about [rapper] Waka Flocka [Flame]. She can tell you when Gucci Mane came out. Like she means it cause she grew up with it, she grew up listening to that with all her friends.

''Her day job was one thing, but hanging out with her friends - you saw some of the trouble she got into online, she was showing you the signs she was a different girl.''
