Mannie Fresh Squashes Beef With Lil Wayne, Signs New Deal With Jay-Z

mannie-fresh-1.jpgMannie Fresh recently called a New Orleans radio station, Q93, to discuss his new projects for 2007. In the interview, Fresh revealed he’s signed a new deal with Jay-Z and Def Jam Records. “I just did a deal with Jay-Z,” he said. “Dude reached out to me. He flew me up, we talked about it and they wrote something nice. It was a nice little proposal.” Fresh continued to say, “What made me take the deal is, they didn’t want me to only do this exclusive deal with them. They were like, “You can go do whatever it is you do.” So my thing [at Def Jam] is to overlook the southern artists they have, as well as sign [new] artists.”

Fresh also disclosed a conversation he had with Lil Wayne a month ago. “We had some words. I asked him if he had a problem with me, because in all honesty, I never had a problem with him,” Fresh said. “So I stepped to him like a man, like, ‘Dude, the problem is not with you, so don’t take sides that don’t got nothing to do with you. I got a problem with another man, it has nothing to do with you.’” Fresh went on to say, “[But] he [Lil Wayne] said, at the time, he was trippin’ and he took sides. But he reached out for his new album, so hopefully we gonna put something together and do business.”

In addition, Mannie says he’s going to produce on T.I.’s next album and is planning to get in the studio with Nas in the next two weeks. He’s also producing most of Juvenile’s next album. “I did the whole Juve album,” he said. “I executive produced the whole album and I did about 13 tracks on it. It’s that Juve y’all wanted.”

    my thought exactly

  • F DOT

    yo mannie fresh is dat nigga…. without him we wouldnt know who the fuck cash money is…..forget about juvie wayne bg turk and all of them fools…. mannie is the truth……that top back beat was bananas!!

  • 7th ward paris ave.

    Yeah! juve album, Nas and Hov
    my nigga freash doing it big.

    fresh is what realy made that old cashmoney. nigga did all the beats and then some.

  • Bonafide

    Thats whats up. Fresh has always been one of the south’s most important producers. I know Baby and Slim CEO’s but Mannie Fresh single handedly created the Cash Money Dynasty with those hot beats, lets face it, lyrics arent what made them hot. Without Fresh there Wayne wouldnt have been in the spotlight that he is in now because Cash Money wouldnt have blown up like they di. Mannie Fresh set the stage for ppl like B.G. and Juve to shine individually when Baby startin anal fuckin everyone on the label INCLUDING Wayne but u i know u Wayne dickryders wont admit to that

  • http://yahoo.com swapmeet willy

    Wooh juve anint been hot since 98 mannie with nas WACK he needs pete rock and premier

  • Hottsauce

    Bout fuckin’ time. I fuckz with Mannie and the dude is awesome with those beats. I can think of anybody that didn’t rock to one of Mannie’s beats one time or another.

  • Pancho

    Great for him!

    Looks like Mannie will be someone to look out for in the 07′….

    By the way…where would the south be at without Mannie Fresh?

  • fuck what they heard its what they need to know

    i admit that wayne wouldnt be shit but he still doing his thing without mannie

  • Dr Flav

    News bought a smile to my face. This is why the south keeps winning, by being real and collaborating, Hov aint stupid, plus folk dont understand he loves the southern movement.

  • Bonafide Cries too damn much

    Yeah nobody ever denied that all cash money artist are gettin fucked.. So what are you talking bout?

  • lake

    fuck me faster

  • DylanMMC

    That would be awesome if the old cash money Juve came back and if MF produce songs on the carter III

  • Southern_Observer

    Hey, maybe we can get a Cash Money reunion sometime in the near future! It would B the dopest thing since hot pockets!

  • John Cochran

    I’ve been waiting to hear more from Fresh. I hope he really does work with Nas cause Nas needs to expand his sound a little.

  • Prince Of The South

    Jay know what’s up, that boy Mannie Fresh hot and what he said about Weezy was true, be a man and stay out of a situation between two men that doesn’t involve you. People get killed for making decisions like that, only thing is I doubt that sitaution is that serious.

  • http://www.myspace.com/thaanswermikeyd Dip Set City

    A lot of people may forget but hov done rap on a mannie beat before.

  • LL

  • JUve

    Shit that new Juve will go hard maybe harder than Carter 3 for real. Many needs his shine back dude been making fire tracks longer than Stortch, lil john and Jazze Pha. Shit he was Jazze’s mentor for while but really he’s probably second next to Dre at making bangin tracks

    I hope Manny puts Juve back where he is suppose to be. Juve is much better than the shit he put out that last couple of albums. And I guess Nas really is trying to put out another album this year, I wonder what type of magic him and Fresh will put together.

  • http://xxl Terry Parker Jr.

    Juve’s new album will be even tighter now that Mannie is exec. producin it. But his last album was tight as hell. Even without mannie manning the boards.Very underrated album. Jay is the savior of hip hop. He don’t have to rap. Just sign the important artists of today. He really needs to squash the beef between him and prodigy and sign mob deep. Because fif don’t know what the hell he doin wit dem.
