Roommates, now we know some of y’all are gonna show your age with this one! After Lil Wayne’s release of ‘Tha Carter V,’ a lot of fans became nostalgic and questions arose about possible Mannie Fresh and Weezy collaborations.
Well, #Roomies, you won’t have to wait too much longer. Not only did Mannie confirm that he and Wayne had joined forces on some tracks together, but he also revealed an entire album is on the way!
In an interview with @xxl, Mannie said he and Wayne had so much material from the creation of CV, he will be condensing it all into one joint project entitled ‘The Fresh Files’
“People are asking when we are going to do this, but I can’t interfere with ‘Tha Cater.’ We have to let it go to the point where they feel we can go ahead and do this,” Mannie said. “The world is definitely going to get those records.”
Coming off of Wayne’s success with CV, Mannie is confident that fans will rock with the project, and ensures it won’t disappoint when it drops.
“I feel like it’s the Wayne that people want to hear,” Mannie said. “The cool thing is that there are some diehard Mannie Fresh and Lil Wayne fans that want to hear Wayne Mannie Fresh beats.”
In the meantime, fans can enjoy some of Wayne and Mannie’s throwbacks! The 20th anniversaries of ‘Bling Bling” and “Tha Block Is Hot” is coming up and Mannie is focused on fans takin’ it back with those hits.
“I’m super blessed that my songs are still being played and are still in rotation 20 years later,” he said. “What I mean is these songs have stood the test of time. That’s incredible to me and I feel super blessed.”
