Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh Reunite for EMD Project
Lil Wayne might be flirting with retirement, but he's got one more project in the works. Play of the production duo Play-N-Skillz revealed that he is working on an EDM project with Weezy and Mannie Fresh. From the sounds of things, the new endeavor is pretty far along although Play had no clue when or how it would be released.
"[Mannie] was like, 'Yo, I've got this project I'm doing with Lil Wayne, EDM thing. I've got these vocals, I wanna do it with you guys. Let's do it together," Play said. "So, we got it in motion."
Lil Wayne's ongoing issues with Cash Money Records obviously make this EDM project's release a potential complication. But if it does see the light of day, it will be a long awaited reunion between Weezy and his longtime producer Mannie Fresh. The last time the two worked together on a full-length project was Wayne's 2004 album Tha Carter.
Although everything is square between Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh, one of their old Cash Money label mates has some issues with them. Turk recently aired out the duo and Juvenile for leaving him in the dark on their collaborations.
"I don’t know if you niggas got a problem with Turk, but if you got a problem with Turk, please address that shit," Turk said. "Cause I’m sick of niggas keep coming to me talking bout, ‘Why you ain’t doing shows with so and so. Why you ain’t got no songs and no tracks from so and so.’ Let me know the business. Wayne, Juvie, Mannie Fresh… Stunna fucking with a nigga. B.G. fucking with a nigga. What’s up with y’all, man? Let me know. This the only way I can reach y’all right now."
The tension between Turk and Lil Wayne may simply be due to the fact that Turk recently re-signed with Cash Money Records. Weezy's legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money could be causing friction with anyone signed to the label.
