Former Cash Money beatsmith Mannie Fresh, who produced the song "Bling Bling," has officially hung up his jewels. "I'm a grown man," he said in a recent interview. "It's like if you go to a club now everybody got on a chain and watch and look like a rapper. I'm not saying nothing's wrong with that but I'm at a different place in my life. I'm looking at longevity and saving my money. I don't want to be a VH1 special like that dude is flat broke walking around acting like he 18." Damn, things done changed. [XXL]

Diddy just wants to dance and inspire you. "I want to make people dance, entertain people. Also just inspire people," Dids said in a recent interview.
