@TIP was seated with Tameka for a discussion with MTV on the day of the Family Hustle premiere. In the segment above, Cliff talks about the joint project with his protege Bobby Ray, which he describes as “Hybrid”.
“Initially I’m the Man and he’s the Martian—to the naked eye but once you scratch beneath the surface, you’ll find that he’s the Man sometimes and I’m the Martian. We’ve recorded maybe five or six songs already, but we’re both focusing on completing our solo projects first and if we need to pull from those songs for my project or his project, so be it, when we release our projects then we’ll able to collectively and solely focus on The Man and the Martian. He has a sound that is very diverse, and different from mine, and he calls me in for the same reason when he records his projects. So we have so many songs that it only made sense.”
