Recently, former Cash Money Records producer Mannie Fresh said he was making a side hustle out of deejaying.
"I deejay [DJMannieFresh.com]. I deejay my a** off, dude. Like, I'm all over the place these days. That's what I started from, and that's where I'm at right now. And, the cool thing about the deejay game is it tells you everything that's going on in music, what people liking. Before the Bonnaroo thing was sold as it was a reunion for me and [Lil] Wayne, really I was hired to deejay at Bonnaroo. It just so happens he was there as well as me." (Hip Hop DX)
