Mannie Fresh spoke with The Boombox about his decision to allow Drake to use his reworking of Juvenile’s ‘Back That Azz Up’ on Drake’s track ‘Practice’, featured on the rapper’s new ‘Take Care’ album. Despite Drake being on Cash Money and Mannie leaving the label under bad circumstances related to money, he didn’t hold it against Drake.
“Drake called and made sure to say, ‘Get in touch with Mannie, give him whatever he wants and make sure the business is straight.’ That’s all I’ve ever asked for,” Mannie explained. “I never had a problem with Cash Money. I just had a problem with the way they did business. I feel like Drake is a different artist. I know he is signed to Cash Money, but I would not put him in the middle of my business with them.”
Drake is set to release his second studio album ‘Take Care’ on November 15th via Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Universal Republic Records. The Canadian rapper talked with MTV about the motivation behind the album cover. “I used to stare at this world through a glass window and, like, two to three years later, I became king in that world,” Drake explained. “That’s who’s sitting on that album cover, that kid that’s just somehow gone from his mom’s basement in Toronto to becoming a king. That’s what the album cover is about and there is a lot of deep thought involved in that ’cause you can go crazy doing this.”

A lot of people pick their single by what’s the strongest song. I don’t really do that. I like to make sure that the content is very relevant to right now.”

My tour ends on January 24th, it really made me realize I’ve been clicked in. I need to buy a place, find my wife, and move to London.” Watch it via YouTube below.
