Background and singles[edit]

In 2008, the song "Ghetto Girl" featuring Sean Kingston was released. On April 16, 2010, the first single "Text" featuring Jason Derulo was issued.

The second single from Mann's World, "Buzzin'", is based on producer J.R. Rotem's chopped 'n' screwed sample of the 1986 Nu Shooz pop/soul song "I Can't Wait"[1] and Ohio Players' 1973 single "Funky Worm". It was released on October 25, 2010 and the song climbed into the Top 20 on Rhythmic stations across the nation and Top 10 in Los Angeles, Miami, Phoenix, Denver and more.

The third single, "The Mack" featuring Snoop Dogg and Iyaz, was released on May 23, 2011. Mann said prior to the release of the album: "this album is going to be a mixture between Chronic, 2001 and Graduation, I want nothing less than perfection".
