In a recent interview with Headkrack, the host of ” Rickey Smiley Morning Show Hip Hop Spot“, producer, rapper, dj, and co creator of “Cash Money Records“, Mannie Fresh shared his views on hip hop today, and what’s instored for his career and the return of his group, ” The Hot Boys“. As far as the return of the ” The Hot Boys” and doing a reunion album Mannie stated, “It’s all based off checks and balances,” Actual checks. I’m not saying it’s not doable because we’re in a better space, all of us, as grown men. It’s doable. That’s what I can say.” When asked about his longevity in the industry and unreleased music, Mannie stated “I”m a deejay first,” “The producer thing just kind of took a face of its own but I’m a deejay. My job is to make you dance. If I’m not making you dance and move I’m a failure at what I’m doing. I feed off the energy of whatever crowd I have, whatever they doing and whatever I do, it’s gotta be a marriage. And I take that and make beats out of it.” “I’m waiting just like you” of the possibility of future releases. “The crazy thing is dude, I’m the dude that do the music,” . “I say the same thing you say. I’ve done songs for tons of people, but the politics of how the music game go, that’s what’s crazy about it. Me, I’m waiting just like you.”
Mannie also mentioned that he would mentor Atlanta native rapper Gucci Mane if he was given the oppotunity to mentor anyone in the industry because of his constant legal issues . He stated, “when you step into this, this is a business, it’s not the streets no more. A lot of cats don’t get that this is a business. Somebody gon’ make money off you. Nobody ever told’em that. With or without you, they gon’ make money. So if you go to jail your record is still gon’ sell, they still gon’ make they money. And if you stay in jail too long, they gon’ move on and get somebody else.” 2014 will be a big year for Mannie Fresh and were all looking forward to it.
