There probably isn’t a producer that knows Cash Money and Lil Wayne better then Mannie Fresh. Fresh recently spoke with the Associated Press about what Lil Wayne outgrowing Cash Money.
“I just think Wayne is growing as an artist,” Fresh said in an interview with the Associated Press. “Wayne has given us some great albums, but he has never given us that album with like a Justin Timberlake on it…with features…we expect from an artist of your caliber.”
Fresh talks restricting features and collaborations with outside artists and producers.
“I think he’s going — real talk — ‘I could probably use Drake and Nicki, but I’ve done that so many times. Let’s get out there and do things so I can show that I am bigger than life.'”
“He’s going to get somebody with star power that can bring other people to the table,” Fresh says. “If I did do a song and I got Justin Timberlake on it, I got Justin Timberlake fans as well. I think Wayne is starting to see it in that way. Hip hop can only bring you so far.”
