MVRemix: Who is doing the production on the album?

Mack: We have Dirty Red, he does a lot of our in house production.

Wire: We have Eyes & Ears out of Orlando, Florida. They have a couple of tracks on the album.

Mack: Also, a guy named Grubs, who is out of Cleveland. But we are still looking for a real hot producer to finish the album up with . We will probably do about three or four more songs. All we are missing is that platinum status and those platinum producers.

MVRemix: I like that song with Juelz Santana "Baby", is that going to be the first single?

Wire: Yes, sir.

MVRemix: You got any other guest appearances on the album?

Coach: We are also going to feature Bushwick Bill on a song, as mentioned, but there are a few others. We don't want to put that out just yet.

Wire: We also got Un Kasa and Tah Mahal, we can't forget about them. And Dirty Red, as well. But we have been negotiating with a couple of artists but we don't know if its going to happen, so we dont want to say anything yet.

MVRemix: What types of songs and concepts are you guys going to have on the album?

Wire: We are going to be addressing what is going on in the streets out here. But we are going to have different types of songs. We are going to have songs for the females, songs for the hustlers, which is what we specialize in. But we are going to give you the all around flow. We got a couple of club joints.

Mack: We got a couple of club joints, but it's mostly for the streets.

MVRemix: Being from Cleveland, was Bone Thugs a big influence for you guys?

Wire: Everybody felt Bone when they came out, but I wouldn't say they were a big influence.

Mack: They showed us that it could be done, coming from Cleveland, so that was inspirational right there. But as far as the music goes, we sound a lot different.

Wire: The inspiration came from the pioneers of this game. Geto Boys, Too Short, Spice 1, E-40, UGK, Eightball & MJG. But with Bone doing it from Cleveland it showed us it could be done. Because nobody really came out of Cleveland and did something major before them.

MVRemix: What else do you guys have going on in the future?

Mack: We are going to drop a mixtape this spring. We don't want to put that title out right now cause its hot, but y'all will hear about that in the next couple of months. We will be putting mixtapes out every quarter so we can get that buzz.

Wire: We are also going to have some DVD action on the website. Always stay in-tune with the website www.MiddleMenRecords.com. Coach: Yeah, the website is going to be the jump off for everything Middle Men. We got hats, shirts, music, movies, DVD's, everything.

Mack: Also, get that new Kay Slay mixtape, we are on there with our single "Baby" featuring Juelz Santana.

Wire: Also, DJ Whoo Kid.

MVRemix: Any last words or shout outs?

Mack: Shout out to the Geto Boys, Bushwick Willie D and Scarface. Shout out to the whole Diplomats, Juelz Santana, Killa, Jim Jones. Also, Kay Slay, Taj, and Purple City, Shiest Bub, Kasa, Agallah.

Wire: Shout out to Suge Knight, we chopped it with him. He is a cool nigga. And shout out to everybody in Cleveland.

Mack: Can't forget about DJ Big Mike, Mic Boogie, Joey Fingaz and all the DJ's.
