Chad Hugo is one third of the band N.E.R.D. and the second half of production team The Neptunes.

He is the only married member of the band and he makes it very clear that he is a family man. At every awards show, Hugo shows up with his wife on his arm or he does not show up at all.

Hugo produces most of the music of N.E.R.D. and sings back-up for Williams. He has not been the frontman for any N.E.R.D. music video but he does not mind; he's more of the quiet guy sitting in the back than the class clown. He leaves the spotlight for Williams.

Other than talking about his drive to produce music and his love for skateboarding, Hugo stays quiet toward the press. He does not do individual interviews like Williams is known to do and he does not show up to Mtv events or certain awards shows.
