It just never had a beat to it. I remember telling him ‘This could be a big, big song.’ We just needed to figure out how to merge bounce music with something else that would make ‘Back That Azz Up’ cross over. The first thing I thought of was classical music. I thought if we put classical music over 808 beats and better organize what he already it would be a big song.

    Mannie has always been one of the illest in the game. Truth be told, I don’t believe he has ever gotten all the shine he deserves. He basically carried Cash Money on his back. Think back of all the hit songs CM had in the past and Fresh was behind them. I am thrilled to see him getting his shine and respect. I hope he keeps releasing dope music.
