“With a record catalog long enough to fill an encyclopedia, Mannie Fresh has basically been the sound of New Orleans hip hop for the past 25 years: producing hits for Nola staples like Lil Wayne, Juvenile, BG, Big Tymers, and bounce queen Cheeky Blakk among others. In addition, his marching drum snare rolls and 808-heavy production trademarks have been picked up on and incorporated in the dirty south canon at large. In this lecture, hosted by Cocaineblunts’ Andrew Noz, he touches on everything from his humble beginnings with local MC, Gregory D, to the Cash Money heydays, and his more recent approach to DJing and production.”
There’s a lot of things I’d like to write about Mannie Fresh but I doubt many of you would care to read so i’ll keep it simple. In my eyes and I’ve said it a million times before I think that Mannie Fresh is a genius, I strongly believe he is one of the most underrated producers ever as well as I believe that he’s a very genuine and real person. This lecture with Red Bull Music touches on loads of topics from growing up as a child to Young Money to everything in the middle. It’s over 2 hours long and I’ve already listened to it twice. If you were ever interested to learn about the life of Mannie Fresh, this is a great way to do it.
