After many stories coming up that people who worked with Cash Money Records were not getting paid, former producer Mannie Fresh says not only was he not paid for some albums but his problems with Cash Money owners Baby and Slim were based on money. "I did albums for Cash Money, I didn't do singles, I did whole albums for Cash Money, and at the end of the day I'm saying I wasn't paid for albums so its like you're doing 10 songs and somebody pays you for 1. What would that be equivalent to? I just said hey this is an example of what it would be equivalent to and its no secret that everybody know why I left Cash Money. We're on speaking terms now but truth be told, yeah it was behind money, everybody know what it was…In truth, I will work with them again based on this, if they cut the check. Its not going to be based on just some words but we done talked about that, we done been there and by the grace of God, we ain't enemies, none of us hate each other but business is business and that was a hard lesson for me to learn. I was in love with doing music, I wasn't paying attention to my business so I'm not even going to say that was all Cash Money's fault that was my fault as well but I was a young dude that didn't know any better. So now that I know better, I'm not going to plug in my scene with out doing business and I got my beats and my paper work right."
