Mannie Fresh is back with a new solo album.
Mannie is easily one of hip hops most underrecognized producers. Formerly producing the entire Cash Money Records crew (Juvenile, Lil' Wayne, Big Tymers, B.G., and The Hot Boys) single handedly, when the sound of the south was at the top of the charts and Cash Money stole the crown from Master P.
In 1986, he started releasing Hip Hop and Miami Bass with Gregory D. After giving up his publishing rights and getting burnt he eventually went to work with Steve "Silk" Hurley in Chicago, producing house music while signed to RCA. Then finally towards the end of the 90s he hooked up with Baby...
And the rest is history... Mannie began churning out the hits that would help define the sound of the south and New Orleans Bounce: #1 Stunna, Back that Azz Up, Ha, Drop it Like it's Hot, I Got That Fire, Bling Bling, and on and on and on.
One of the things that differentiates Mannie from the rest of the clones, is that like Timbaland... most of his instrumentals can stand on their own... without MCs, they are still SONGS rather than BEATS.
