We’ve seen the two working in the studio, now Mannie Fresh has confirmed that his OMFGOD project with Mos Def is complete and is currently in the mixing stage. Keeping it to a feature-free 10-track project, Mannie shares some thoughts with HipHopDX.

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.

Mos is a Hip Hop head, so it kinda came easy. And, by him being a Mannie Fresh fan, and me being his fan, it came real easy. And I think that’s the way the process should be. We should have fun. It was no stress; we didn’t have no budgets from nobody, we didn’t have nobody hanging over us, no A&Rs. It was just something that we decided to do.

The New Orleans producer also revealed that they had a “couple of offers” from labels but they’ve decided to release it digitally on their own instead. Dope!
