Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) & Mannie Fresh Team Up For Joint Project "OMFGOD"

Yasiin Bey and Mannie Fresh bring Brooklyn and New Orleans together on a new project.

Yasiin Bey (f/k/a Mos Def) is joining forces with Mannie Fresh for a new project titled OMFGOD.

OMFGODbknola.com is the website dedicated to the project, and it highlights the connection between Brooklyn's Bey and New Orleans' Mannie Fresh.

So far, two clips of the emcee and producer working together in the studio have emerged.

The first clip includes footage of Bey and Mannie vibing out to some of the latter's production, with the former recording a verse:

In the second clip, an interview from 2007 is included in which Yasiin Bey exlained why he wanted to work with Mannie Fresh. "I've always been a big fan of Mannie Fresh because I think his sound represents a modern version of that New Orleans Brass thing. ...I think it's kind of genius."

    This is music. Music is a universal language that is suppose to unite. As for Yasiin Bey, he signifies masculine energy, with the prefect balance of feminine energy. Yin/Yang. We all possess both. I appreciate his artistry and ginuiness. Great collabo.

  • COLLABORATIONS ARE THE REMEDY FOR HIP HOP REJUVENATION

    Literally can't wait for this...

He lefts us and we built YMCMB by ourselves. Wayne will KILL these niggas A$AP! Weezy is KIGN of HIP HOP! YMCMB!

  • Don Kody

    Man all u dumb fucks with negative shit to say about Mos Def or Mannie Fresh need to just fuckin kill over... Mos Def is a poet, period. His flow is respected by all from Common to Jay-Z.. I bet your favorite rapper wouldn't know a metaphor or simile even if he had a fuckin thesaurus. And his movie game ain't gimmicked either How many of your favorite rapper/actors can actually act? Mos Def played various characters flawlessly. As far as Mannie Fresh go, he's the Dr. Dre of the south period. Who you think BIRTH THE SNARE ROLL IN HIP-HOP USED BY EVERY ONE FROM DRUMMA BOY, LEX LUGER, TO SOUNDCLICK'S GOLDENBOY JOHNNY JULIANO. In fact, There would be no YMCMB without the ONLY PRODUCER ON THE LABEL... WHO SINGLE-HANDEDLY PRODUCED 95% OF CASH MONEY RECORDS DISCOGRAPHY INCLUDING THE CARTER 1 (WAYNE'S SWAN SONG) I dare anyone to challenge my post. Respect their ledgend.. Str8 outta Youngstown,Ohio . tell em Don Kody said it.

    • Flamez

      Manny made them niggas like you said fam,you know how many albums he did almost all of the production from B.G. Choppa City up until Carter 1 look at the cash money discography and you'll understand. Only album he didn't soley produce was Baller Blockin and he had a bass player that was funky too.

  • YEBO

    AFTER DEPARTURE FROM CASH MONEY, MANNIE FRESH LITTLE BIT FELL OFF, BUT HE IS STILL ONE OF THE GREATEST HIP HOP PRODUCERS EVER... BUT ONLY THING I DON'T GET IS WHY IS HE WASTING TIME WITH THAT FLOP BOY, MOS DEF IS WACK AND MANNIE DESERVES BETTER MCS TO HOP ON HIS BEATS

    • Anonymous

      KILL YO SELF , GO BACK TO YOUR GAY PORN SIGHT AND STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW CAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT MUSIC FOR REAL. THEN ALL YOU TALK ABOUT IS WHO'S WACK. YOU HAVEN'T STATED ANYBODY WITH THE SAME LONGEVITY THAT'S BETTER BUT YET YOUR THE BIGGEST CRITIC. DO SOME HISTORY AND TAKE YOUR HOSTILE ASS SOMEWHERE AND MEDITATE . CAUSE YOUR ALLERGIC TO MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE...

    • YEBO

      CLASSICS? ALL CASH MONEY ALBUMS HE WAS ON, TRILLA, GUCCI MANE'S ALBUM, BUN B'S TRILL, UGK, TIP ALBUMS, YOUNG JEEZY'S DEBUT ALBUM, ALL CLASSICS, YOU DUMBASSES. I RESPECT ILLMATIC, BUT IT WAS A YEARS BEFORE MANNIE FRESH WAS RELEVANT AS A PRODUCER... AND BIGGIE'S SHIT IS WACK SO IT AIN'T EVEN IMPORTANT HE WASN'T ON THAT. I'M PRETTY SURE IF BIGGIE WAS ALIVE, HE WOULD WORK WITH MANNIE FRESH, LEX LUGER, DRUMMA BOY, THE RUNNERS AND NOT PEOPLE LIKE DJ "POP" PREMIER WHOSE BEATS SOUNDS ALL THE SAME AND LIKE THEY WERE MADE HUNDRED YEARS AGO. DJ PREMIER IS JOELL ORTIZ OF PRODUCING - ONE OF THE WORST OF ALL TIME (IF NOT THE WORST). I'M SORRY, BUT THESE GUYS LIKE PREMIER OR MOS DEF ARE KILLING THE REAL HIP HOP, WHY YOU GIVE THEM RESPECT.

  • Anonymous

    isn't mannie fresh known for southern bounce and not hip hop?

  • Ray T (ATL)

    Its alright, but they need to get Lex Luger to do the beats - now that would be a killer collaboration, Mannie Fresh is washed up, Lex Luger and T-Minus are the best producers in the rap game right now.

  • Anonymous

    g shit, this'll come out rite before his collab wit jay elec and spitta... lol yea nice vision but i doubt this will ever see market
