Mannie Fresh denies beef with Cash Money Records

Before Cash Money Records made it big, Mannie Fresh was signed to the label as a producer. With Fresh's beats, the label gained buzz outside of New Orleans. It was not long before The Hot Boyz were signed and their deal with Universal Records was established.

Cash Money Records dominated from the minute they were introduced to the public. Mannie Fresh's beats became a staple of the movement. Along with his beats came his ad-libs on the songs he produced. Before the end of their run, Mannie Fresh and Birdman teamed up.

As the Big Tymers, they ran off a string of hit records, as the label was led by Juvenile and B.G. But, following their 2002 and 2003 departures, things began falling apart and friends became enemies. By 2004, Lil Wayne was the only artist left on Cash Money Records. Shocking the hip hop world, Mannie Fresh would leave Cash Money Records in 2005.

Not long after leaving, Birdman had negative things to say about his former sidekick. Despite leaving the label, Mannie Fresh said he had no issues with Cash Money Records. Juvenile and B.G. left after not being properly paid for their work. However, Mannie Fresh only felt it was time to move on. Lil Wayne soon revived Cash Money Records through his music and the Young Money imprint. Surprisingly, Cash Money has now surpassed their peak from a decade ago.

When asked about coming back to Cash Money Records, Mannie Fresh said he would not rule it out because there was never any beef. Mannie Fresh went on to credit Lil Wayne for his growth as an artist, saying he is on top of his game. With Lil Wayne doing so well, Mannie Fresh said he would relish the opportunity to produce for him again. However, last summer, Mannie Fresh did allude to their being some beef between he and Lil Wayne.

Regardless of what the issue was, Mannie Fresh is apparently over it and ready to work with him again.
