Lil' Flip Talks New Album, Signs Sqad Up

Houston's Lil'

Flip recently released his new single "What It Do" from his forthcoming

album, I Need Mine.

The new single is produced

by former Cash Money Records producer Mannie Fresh, who concocted a unique track

that Flip feels will be another sure-fire hit.

"I wanted a song with

energy, the way ‘Game Over’ has mad energy and the crowd goes crazy,"

said Flip. "Fresh laced it up like he does, we did the hook and I did my

thing. This track is like Magnolia meets H-Town. Some real hood to hood type


According to Sandy Lal aka

“The Synphony” (Flip's advisor, manager and producer), the pairing

of Manny Fresh and Lil’ Flip is a monumental event.

"The whole Texas/New

Orleans connection is strong, but nobody has actually ever done it on a large

scale,” Lal stated. “The king of Houston hooked up with the king

of N.O. and it's nothing short of great."

I Need Mine

will feature guests like Nate Dogg, Lyfe Jennings as well as production from

the likes of Scott Storch, Salaam Remi, Mannie Fresh and others.

Lil’ Flip has also

made waves with his recent signing of New Orleans rappers Sqad Up to his Clover

G Records, and the launch of his own beverage line called Lucky Nites.
