Mannie Fresh Thinks Record Labels Will Be Gone In 20 Years [VIDEO]

mannie fresh thinks record labels will be gone in 20 years

Mannie Fresh is one of my biggest musical influences. Over the past year or two, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to network and build a personal relationship with this legendary artist; known for his witty raps, and a go-to production style that defined an era in hip hop. Do I have to remind you who coined the term ‘bling, bling?’

In addition to his wealth of musical knowledge, not to mention being one of the most charismatic people you will ever meet, Mannie is also one of the smartest and well-seasoned people that I’ve met in the music biz. Not only did he craft the entire Cash Money sound that launched the careers of artists like Juvenile and Lil Wayne (just to name a few), he was also hand-selected to be part of a recent project by Kanye West  – who truly believes that Mannie is “the best producer” – period.

In a nutshell, Mannie Fresh is literally “that dude.”

What Mannie has, that a lot of others don’t, is the ability to speak on the landscape of the music industry now, compared to back in the day. In a recent interview with VLAD TV, Fresh weighs in on what makes new artists like Mac Miller, Macklemore, and others so successful without the help of big machine record labels having their back.

While on the subject of record labels, he also shares why he believes they will be non-existent by the year 2033. Check the video, and comment below with your thoughts.
