Did he ever ask you about signing with MMG?
He asked me to join MMG, so I’m definitely entertaining the idea. I definitely got a lot of respect for his movement, you know what I’m saying? [However] right now, I’m just trying to figure out everything with myself, with my own entity, and my own movement. Then I’ma figure out everything else ’cause there was a lot of things I had to fall back off for me to get my situation straight.
Wiz Khalifa had asked me to go on tour with him but I told him I couldn’t do it just to get the whole Coke Boys movement together.
Are you still down with Akon?
Nah. I was never down with Akon, I just had a little shopping deal with him on the come up. He was supposed to be getting me signed, so, you know, that was it. Big shouts to Akon, the whole Konvict movement, but, things just didn’t work out like I thought it was gonna work out, so, I just had to work on my own thing.
You’re one of the remaining New York artists with a buzz. Do you feel a bit of pressure?
Man, I just really don’t get all the way into it, I just be working. I’m just staying busy, making a lot of music, and staying relevant, that’s all it is. It’s just staying persistent. I don’t really get into the politics, because at the end of the day everybody don’t want me to win. I just stay away from all that and stay working on my music and everything that I got to do.
Two years ago, you managed to hook up with Ma$e for the remix to “New York Minute.” I think everyone was trying to figure how you managed to pull that one off. How did that happen?
[Laughs] He just hit me out of nowhere one day. I looked at the phone like, “Am I bugging?” [Laughs] Yeah, I was just laughing. Me and him kicked it, man. He cool as hell. He loved that “New York Minute” record so, he just jumped on it for me. I made a lot of history, man.
You plan on bringing him back soon?
I mean whenever he decide to call me.
So to recap, you got the Cocaine Mafia tape coming September 15th.
Yup, and the one with me and Waka [Lock Out] right after that. Everybody get ready cause we about to turn it up.
