This may be news to some, but former rapper Yung Berg is making quite the name for himself as a producer these days. Having worked with the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Jason Derulo and Tamar Braxton, the Grammy-nominated beatsmith/songwriter is also adding Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Puff Daddy’s upcoming albums to his repertoire. In an interview with Rap-Up, Yung Berg talked about what can be expected from Nicki’s third studio album.
“The Pink Print is the female Blueprint. Like Jay Z put out The Blueprint, I think this Pink Print really personifies that,” he said. “And not only that, I’m really involved in it, and Nicki Minaj is like on of the best people. One of my best friends in the music industry right now period.”
Yung Berg also revealed that he will serve as A&R on puff Daddy’s Making Money Mitch LP, and has recorded a track for Rihanna’s eighth solo album. After a trip to Miami, he talked about the mogul’s attitude toward the project.
“We got a joint called ‘All Night’ for Rih. And I’m really excited about A&Ring this Money Making Mitch project with Puff. I just left Miami, I stayed down there for a week, and it was just amazing to see how excited about music he is.”
