While Mannie Fresh might not be able to tell us when Lil Wayne’s Carter V will finally be released, he’s got plenty of insight into what the music on the album actually sounds like.

In a new interview with Montreality the former Cash Money Records stalwart dropped some details about Weezy’s long awaited Carter sequel and hinted that he mined a throwback sound that might remind fans of the first in the series.

“We’re still waiting to see what happens with that album,” Fresh said. “We kind of went back to that original Cash Money feel. What you grew up on, the Mannie Fresh sound that you knew Wayne and Mannie did the chemistry. It’s more of that first Carter [album]. That feel.”

When asked about his favorite aspect of the Cash Money Records story, the producer and deejay likened the label’s success to a rags-to-riches story.

“The story behind it,” he said. “It was some kids that took nothing and turned it into something. It’s the dream that everybody dream about and it actually came through. I think that’s the most beautiful thing. That’s iconic.”
