mannie fresh chopper city in the ghetto cash money
What's your take on the album as a whole?
Overall, that album is just one of those albums that I can go back and just listen to it, listen to my production, listen to him and it brings me back to where I need to be at. This album defined what Cash Money is right now. Like I said, the first generation was based on bounce. Then all of the sudden we come up to The B.G.'z, which was Wayne and B.G. What happened was, Wayne got in trouble with his grades and his mom took him out of the group. So it was left to just B.G. And the songs he was turning in, I was like, this not bounce music no more, this dude can really rap.

Where do you think Chopper City In The Ghetto stacks up?
It’s timeless. I feel, would we ever have other albums like this? That’s scary to me. Listening to hip-hop right now, would we ever have something that we'd be celebrating 15 years from now that we talking about today? Would music ever feel like that again? Certain rap albums are timeless. OutKast, they have timeless albums. People like 8Ball And MJG, Dr. Dre, those are things things that this generation, somebody who’s nine years old, you can hear the story and by the time you of age you pop that in and be like, "Oh I get it, I see why everybody was jamming to this.” So I think in that era, the music that he did was timeless. It defined a moment. When that was going on, that was the last stages of us having categories of rap. What I mean is, you still had gangsta rap, you still had pro-black Public Enemy, you still had the storyteller Slick Rick. And now it's just one-dimensional.

This album is not apologetic. It is what it is; you either you like me or you don’t. I miss that about music. Everybody wants to tip-toe. People say you can't say this or that to this person, but you do have an opinion, and music was an outlet for that. That album was not apologetic at all; it was raw in your face.
