1. VIDEO: Mannie Fresh at Red Bull Music Academy Interview

    Today being Fat Tuesday, a/k/a Mardi Gras Day, we thought it only appropriate to post this extensive interview with esteemed producer, DJ, New Orleans hip-hop living legend, and grown-ass man , Mr. Mannie Fresh. This particular Q&A, conducted by long-time RBMA team member, ego trip’s own Chairman Jefferson Mao, took place at a recent Red Bull Music Academy meeting of the minds in NOLA, and makes its WORLD PREMIERE here. Watch and observe as Mannie discusses the roots of bounce music, where he spent his early collegiate years (hint: not in college), his glorious run with Cash Money Records, and in an EXCLUSIVE SCOOP, whether or not he’s got Asian people in his family. All of which will inevitably have you concluding, Mannie = Fresh 4 life.
