With production duo Cool & Dre recently signing a deal with Cash Money Records, SOHH hit up Sean Garrett to find out if he has officially inked paperwork to join the conglomerate.
Claiming a deal is still pending, Garrett said he would be excited to join forces with Miami duo at Cash Money.
"We got about four or five other deals on the table right now," Garrett told SOHH about his pending deal with Cash Money Records. "The negotiations is getting real heavy but you know, that's my home team, that's where I want to be so we're just gonna have to make it work. There's a few things that we're still going back and forth on but everything is looking really good and that's family regardless. I got so much love for them. Me and Tyga were just on '106 & Park' ... That'd be really really dope to be there with Cool & Dre. I've known them for a while, Cool & Dre. They're real cool people. I'm like a chameleon, Sean Garrett, I f*ck with everybody. I'm not a person that's hard to deal with. Even though I've been so successful, everybody knows how humble I am, I just do what I do."

Recently, Garrett shared his admiration for Cash Money Records' co-founder Baby's label.
"I really got a lot of respect for Wayne," Sean said in an interview. "Wayne embraced me with open arms before he went on a little vacation. He took me on tour with him. He was really open arms about rocking with him. He put me on the pilot seat going on right before him. I got a lot of respect for [Cash Money], because it represents where music is going as far as really believing in yourself and not just being in a box. Just creating your own style, your own movement and believing in your team. Cash Money is really family-orientated. I can bring a lot to Cash Money, in reference to what I do, developing their other artists, helping them to travel across the water. They've got artists they are trying to break internationally. It's sort of a win/win situation." (MTV)
Earlier this month, Dre said he believed the power move symbolized their growth as producers.
"In 2011 it's all about diversifying your talent and aggressively pursuing opportunities," Andre "Dre" Lyon said in a statement. "It's not about replacing legends and their accomplishments, it's about creating a new legacy to inspire future young business men and women. Catch you at the Heat games, Wade let's get it!" Cool & Dre experienced success with Cash Money in the past, having produced tracks for Lil Wayne, Birdman and Young Money. (All Hip Hop)
The duo publicly made their announcement via Twitter in early August.
"just locked in with Cash Money officially. We always been fam and that wont ever stop, now we're making power moves 2gether on the business."
"look out for projects produced by Cool &Dre thru CashMoney imprint alongside records produced for the CMYM label roster. Stunna lets get it!"
"shout to every1 at Cash Money for helping to make this partenership a reality! freeweezy! I Am Not A Human on the way!" (Cool & Dre's Twitter)
