Mystikal Says Beef Between Birdman and Mannie Fresh Doesn’t Concern Him
Mystikal, one of the latest Cash Money signees, wants the world to know he is not involved in the beef between his new labelhead, Birdman, and friend-turned-foe producer Mannie Fresh.
In a recent interview with MTV’s RapFix Live, The New Orleans native explained he was in prison when the differences between the duo arose.
"I was gone, I wasn’t out here," he said. "What I do with Mannie is what I do with Mannie. What I do with my company is what I do with my company."
Mystikal has been working with Fresh on his upcoming Cash Money debut Original, with Fresh having produced five tracks on the project so far. Mystikal described the records as “monsters,” however, according to Birdman, those records wont be on the album. At least if it is up to him –which it is.
"I never heard none of them,” Birdman previously told XXLMag.com about Mannie Fresh and Mystikal working together. “But honestly, I don’t care to work with Fresh and none of his music. That’s [Mystikal’s] prerogative. If that’s what he wants to do, I’mma respect that. But if it’s on me, I want him with all new music. No disrespect to Fresh, but we ain’t on that sound. He do what he do. We do what we do. I love the producers we have from the Cool and Dre to Detail to Mr. Beats to DJ Khaled. They have the sound that’s poppin’. The sound that’s putting 100,000 in these arenas every night.”
Mystikal’s projecti s slated for release in May. –Christian Mordi @mordi_thecomeup
