Maybe I will be in a position where I can prosper when I get out. Maybe there was a worse fate out there waiting for me. Part of the truth is just as bad as a lie.
It fucked a lot of people up. Challenges and competitions are different cause you can make them enjoyable. With every challenge I get, I love it.
I go to sleep, wake right back up at 7 AM and do it all over again. I just finished T. What else have you been working on? Beats for a lot of different artists?
Yeah, for real, the underdogs. Sometimes you gotta start from scratch and build your way up. I still want to have that feeling that I can make a new artist.
I mean, it became a production-driven game. Some dudes still inspire me. They want all your ideas. They want you to write the song, produce the song, arrange the song, and make [the artist] looks good. It makes you feel like, dude, you must know somebody. Is it a label deal or do you have an executive position at the actual record label?
I can go sign whoever I want. I get to work outside of the Def Jam umbrella. I can bring artists to them, and I get to voice my opinion. Do whatever you do, and when you have time for this, cool. Are you involved on the business end as well? Yeah, because my [financial] splits with Def Jam are crazy.
But you know, if I bring something there and I produce it or whatever, my splits on the album are crazy. Yeah, exactly. You feel like they must have inherited their job or something. I think an artist should be listened to creatively. Will this situation also involve you working with the existing Def Jam roster? Yeah, if they want to work with me, I welcome them. Def Jam, they got a powerful roster. They got Ludacris, Rick Ross, Jeezy, Jay-Z — so if we could all get together collectively and go out there and get it, that would be some shit.
Or is your situation not really structured like that? A lot of the moves are his moves. Not at the present time because my plate is full right now.
I bet you have a lot of people coming up to you freestyling. Yeah, all the time. The biggest thing I could ask for from a new artist is creativity. When I hear a song, I want to know, what else do you have after that? You have a lot of major labels that are signing them ringtone songs. You told us earlier that you had some things you wanted to get off your chest.
Recently when you were doing a radio interview at Q93 in New Orleans, Baby called in during a commercial break and made some threats towards you. What exactly happened? I think he just called at the wrong time. He called when we went on a commercial break.
Ask me the first three questions. Do you feel like those issues should be discussed in a public forum? Or have you already had those conversations behind closed doors? I mean, I buried that. I left it behind me, but he called and brought it back up. You did something to me. What did Baby do to you? It was all-around bad business. Is everybody wrong? Why do you think Wayne is still there if everyone else was unhappy?
Honestly, I have no idea. When everything else went down and The Carter came out, Cash Money was back to where it needed to be. So I feel like, dude, what am I really worth to you? Am I just a workhorse? I look at it like this: Some people in this game really love what they do, and some people do it to get paid. You really love what you do. Is it possible you just agreed to a bad contract? Or was it just them not handling their part of the deal?
It was them. I was over my bad paperwork days. It was just them not doing what they were supposed to do, not living up to their responsibilities. It was a learning thing with me. And he said in an interview he did in another magazine that I just woke up and left. We talked about this over and over again. And if nothing happened, there was only two places for me to go — up or down. It was time for me to move on. I just want to make music. What motive would they have to keep money from you?
Like you said, with them giving you credit for a lot of things musically, why would they not want to keep you happy? In music, the important thing is to keep the people happy that keep you in money. And then you wanna show me that shit? Dude, how are you gonna come around me like that and you owe me some money? Chicks, dudes, whatever. Allegedly, they forged your tax returns and B.
It was a whole bunch of stuff. All kinds of shit. It was time for me to get the fuck up outta there. We honestly talked about this. The first time that everybody heard about me [leaving Cash Money], I had went up to them. Me, by myself, nobody else. I went up to their office and we talked about it, man to man.
Nothing changed. So it was time for me to move on. How much money are we talking about? Not thousands. What was their reaction when you went to their office? And for the longest, dude kept saying that I was just upset about what happened with my album sales. It was never that, dude. Some you gonna win, some you gonna lose. You move on. But even for you, it seemed like things at Cash Money were good.
Was there a point where things started going bad? I was more in love with what I was doing [musically] than paying attention to my business. I was forced to pay attention to what was going on because it was affecting me. Four million? Five million? It was more than that. But like I said, I was in love with what I was doing. My all, my heart and everything was with Cash Money. Is there a lawsuit? Yeah, I brung it to their attention. So did it go to trial? Nah, it was outright.
It was just outright. And I was big about it. But then it came, all this [talk] surfacing. He said when they got home they went on the block, and I went home. Where else was it for me to go? Stop that. Mannie came up with this. Taking the producer and the CEO and making a group? I produce. Yeah, Slim is more of the business mind behind Cash Money. Obviously, that changed. He had to go out there and get it. I take my hat off to him for doing what he did. Since you had a chance to watch Wayne grow over the years as an artist, how do you feel about Gillie the Kid claiming he wrote for him?
At certain times, I would listen to what he said, and he also would listen to what I said. How was Cash Money able to develop such a roster of talented artists at a young age? Our city was always surrounded by talent.
That shit is unheard of now. Now artists come to the studio and want to write their verse. And my opinion mattered in the beginning. We took the producer and the dude that owned the record company and made a group. So it had to be a vision or something. T At one point, Wayne was talking about signing with Jay-Z. A lot of people take their side and some people take my side. I feel like the pen is mightier than the sword. If God takes me off this earth, I hope my kids inherit it.
Go get it. I just want to do my own thing. So just leave me alone. We were raised like brothers and we grew up together, but unfortunately business changed all that. If you were able to come to an agreement as far as a financial settlement, would you go back to Cash Money if they wanted you to? Wayne asked me to do something on his albums. He reached out and I agreed to it. After the [radio] interview I saw Wayne in Atlanta. Do you have a problem with me?
How did Katrina affect you? Did you move from New Orleans? Capone got his alias from gangster Al Capone, who was notoriously known for bootlegging, smuggling, and prostitution during the Prohibition era.
Noreaga on the other hand modeled himself after Panamanian military governor, Manuel Noriega, who was eventually convicted of drug trafficking, racketeering, and three murder cases.
Noriega was suspected to be responsible for the deaths of 11 political opponents. Music Home. Close Search for: Search. Log In Sign In. Forgot password? Enter your account data and we will send you a link to reset your password. Your password reset link appears to be invalid or expired.
