“I think he’s going — real talk — ‘I could probably use Drake and Nicki, but I’ve done that so many times,’” said Mannie. “Let’s get out there and do things so I can show that I am bigger than life.”
Wayne’s list of career collaborations includes working with many industry heavyweights. His catalog features cuts with Jay Z, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Destiny’s Child, and OutKast. But Fresh still thinks Wayne is missing that huge crossover joint effort that would solidify his status as one of the elite artists on the planet.
“Wayne has given us some great albums, but he has never given us that album with like a Justin Timberlake on it – with features where like, OK, this is what we expect from an artist of your caliber,” Mannie stated. “If I did do a song and I got Justin Timberlake on it, I got Justin Timberlake fans as well. I think Wayne is starting to see it in that way. Hip Hop can only bring you so far.”
