Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music compilation album has been in the works for some time, and now that it's reaching its completion stages, Mannie Fresh - who produces heavily on the LP - sat down to discuss what fans could expect to hear on the album. He also touched on his relationship with Kanye, which dates back to Mannie's Cash Money days.
"I knew Kanye way before he was signed", Mannie says. "He came to Cash Money with Mickey, who was an artist on Cash Money. They came together as a group and Kanye was the producer, and he decided to split out and later did his thing with Jay-Z. So I've been knowing dude forever. Kanye knows what I'm about."
Mr. Fresh then went on to explain that he enjoyed working with the G.O.O.D. Music label due to the talent they have on their roster.
"It's self-explanatory. Just look at the name of Kanye's label: G.O.O.D. Music. That's what it's all about, creating good music. I've been having fun. Kanye was like, 'Man, play me some new songs.' He was impressed with what he heard. Kanye respects what I've done."
"There are so many talented people that are on G.O.O.D. Music that it's nuts. You have so many people that you are working with that it's unlimited. I can't say what it's structured around. It's more so a music factory. It's like, hey, everybody that walks through those doors play Kanye something. If he likes it they give it to him. It's as simple as that."
No release date has been set for the album.
