Guest Star: "I've Got Mutual Friends At Maybach. I've Never Hated On Meek Mill. I've Never Hated On Wale"

[After recently coming to the defense of Hit-Boy following some name-drops from rapper Stalley, producer Chase N. Cashe gives SOHH readers an update on his stance toward the Maybach Music Group artist.]
I really don't have much to say to dude because I don't have any beef with him. My only thing is that this is a young generation and it's our turn to take over. I just feel like the political sh*t and the selfishness and people feeling like the light is supposed to be on them [is there]. Nah, you have to work for that.
I understand what he was talking about and how he's working and dropping these tapes but I feel like he didn't have to mention a name. I also dropped mixtapes and I've toured nationwide and performed for tens of thousands of people but you don't see me commenting on Dom Kennedy when he dropped the Yellow Album like, "I dropped my own mixtape but nobody's worried about that sh*t. I'm dropping [new videos] and that sh*t deserves a hundred thousand views."
I may feel that way but had I put my work in and voiced my opinion? I feel there were a bunch of things that he was right on because we all have the right to stand up for ourselves, ride our own d*ck and feel like we're the man. But that sh*t is played out. N*ggas have to leave that sh*t alone. That sh*t died in the Lil Wayne and Jay-Z era. I think n*ggas can have egos but still be humble.
It's the type of thing that twisted me up. You're talking sh*t but then you're saying you're not talking sh*t about my n*gga [Hit-Boy] and his video because you're still a humble cat. That's what I don't do. I don't do the political thing because a lot of these n*ggas are not your friends.
But if you keep it one hundred, do what you're supposed to do, you're gonna get people to come to you. You don't need to mention "Jay-Z Interview," you don't need to mention "Mercy" video because not only am I standing up for Hit-Boy but I'm standing up for G.O.O.D. [Music] and Surf Club. Surf Club is attached to G.O.O.D. Music through Hit-Boy.
As long as they're supporting Hit-Boy, I'm going to show support. I've got mutual friends at Maybach. I've never hated on Meek Mill. I've never hated on Wale. I've worked with these n*ggas. So just don't comment, and if you do just don't mention the names. You can do it however you want to do but you know what it is.
If somebody calls out your mama, you're going to speak up. If somebody calls out your family, you're going to speak up. Hit-Boy feels how he feels and he knows how I feel about it. He just wants to make his music but I'm the grand protector. Don't talk about anybody that I'm affiliated with.
At age 17 the budding beatsmith had a chance online meeting with future production partner Hit-Boy of the already established Surf Club via popular social networking website MySpace. After exchanging pleasantries, Hit-Boy invited Chase N. Cashe out to Fontana, California, an uncalculated leap of faith for both sides that would go on to spawn chart topping music and most importantly a lasting brotherhood. Now with a Grammy-nominated platinum single under his belt (Lil' Wayne's 2009 collaborative effort with Eminem, "Drop The World), Chase N. Cashe is stepping from behind the production helm and into his new comfort zone -- in front of the world.
