If you were waiting for a Blackstar reunion, you will have to wait a little bit longer. Rather than Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) putting his efforts towards that long-awaited project, he’s teaming up with New Orleans’ very own legend, Mannie Fresh, to release a collaborative project, OMFGOD.
During an interview with HHDX, Mannie opened up about the project, and pretty much summarized what we as fans can expect.
“We recorded way more than that. But rather than to [just] have somebody say like, ‘Oh, wow’ – I think a lot of times when you do that you throw away music. So, I just wanna give people like ten bangers and let’s be out. Some of those songs, I feel like we should just throw [them] out there. I’m that dude that think of songs to sample that no cats would ever think of. That’s one of ‘em. And, given the response … I always read from bloggers what they checkin’ out, and people are like, ‘Dude, that song right there [is the one].’ But if it don’t [make the album], believe me, we gonna put it out. ‘Cause I mean, it would be a waste [if we didn’t].”
