Lil Wayne Reveals Cash Money Is Considering A Big Tymers Album With Drake

UPDATE: After Birdman revealed that Mannie Fresh would not be included in the group's return, Mannie responds pointing out that Lil Wayne and Drake "are not the Big Tymers."

Between 1998 and 2003, the Big Tymers released five albums. The early breakthrough duo for Cash Money Records included producer/rapper Mannie Fresh and label co-founder/rapper Birdman (p/k/a Baby). The group disbanded in 2003, after Mannie Fresh left Cash Money, citing financial disputes, before signing a solo deal at Def Jam Records.

In the last two years, there has been discussion of Mannie Fresh producing for Cash Money acts—namely Mystikal—with whom he was working with before the longtime No Limit/Jive Records act signed with CMR.

Lil Wayne made a bold revelation though, telling MTV's Rap Fix that there is a "possibility" of a Big Tymers reunion, with a multi-platinum addition. "[There is] a possibility of a Big Tymers album—adding Drake. But that kid is busy; there's all kinds of possibilities." At present it is unclear if the album would include Mannie Fresh.

Wayne also dismissed plans of immediate upcoming plans for Tha Carter VI album.

UPDATE: Following last week's report, Birdman spoke to MTV's Rap Fix indicating that Mannie Fresh would not be included in the Big Tymers reunion. Following last Wednesday's airing, Mannie Fresh also contacted MTV. According to HotNewHipHop.com, the founding member of the Big Tymers was openly critical of a reunion without him. While reportedly praising the music of both his onetime protege Lil Wayne as well as Wayne's protege Drake, Mannie said, "[Lil Wayne and Drake are] not the Big Tymers."

Cash Money Records has yet to respond to Mannie Fresh's statement, or provided additional details on the potential next album from the revamped Big Tymers.

    Man, if rappers could put aside the bullshucks and get their tings together, the possibilities would be endless. So much drama with so many rap groups man. Money, money, money, my bitch is my money, money, money, money, money is my bitch. Rap is everywhere, commercials, tv shows, you got old people spoofing rap all over the damn place and we can't even get our tings together and get this money and keep it in house. Oh well!

  • polo hova

    Drake can never be in the Big Tymers. Wayne can't even be in it. They broke up. Come up with a new name. Don't trash the old one.

  • CRACK BABY

    DID YOU COPYRIGHT THE NAME, NIGGA?? OK THEN KEEP IT MOVING...

  • d-nucks

    Notice Drake hasnt' commented on this clown shit.....I just know he don't want to be apart of that shit. He gotta to slow down and stop what he is planning to make a fucking big tymers record? LMAO!!!!! he got rap along baby's remedial hot breath having ass

  • Whorida

    Mannie Fresh was the only talented person in the group. Fools need to just make a new group name instead of calling themselves Big Tymers.

  • Anonymous

    Baby was supposed to make an album with Rick Ross too, but that shit didn't happen

  • One

    I doubt that will happen. I notice that they said it's a possibility. Big tymers had their own signature when it came to music. Just having Drake, Wayne, and Baby all together sounds like some shit you would expect to be on the radio spin for a while. Hope this does not happen.

      He's a legend in the sense that he gave up and is wack as hell and everyone will remember that about him lol. Dude is milking these people asking for mediocrity. If ppl complained they wanted a real effort from him he might go back to his drought-suffix-prefix days.

    Big Tymers = Mannie Fresh & Birdman. Without either of them, it doesn't make sense to speak about the group, regardless if Drake would be a part of it. Even if it's clear that Birdman is the weakest link in every project / group he is or has been involved ever.

  • CRACK BABY

    AS LONG AS IT EXCLUDES BIRDMAN AND MANNIE FRESH RAPPING, THEN IT SHOULD BE GOOD...SO PRETTY MUCH A DRAKE ALBUM ENTIRELY PRODUCED BY MANNIE FRESH.

    whhooaa!! that would be BIG!!!

    so wait... if mannie fresh not gonna be in it, wouldn't it just be another cash money record featuring birdman.........................?

  • IMhO

    i would of been hyped for this like 5-6 years ago.. mannie hasnt made a beat worth repeating since like jeezy, baby always was wack. weezy couldnt carry his own album let album someone elses..drake would be the other person worth listening 2

  • foreal

    i will wait to till i hear that they are in the studio making the album to believe it. Drugged out lil wayne is not exactly a reliable source.

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant at YMCMB, I can confirm talks have indeed taken place. Mannie Fresh realize he's nothing without Cash Money. BTW, fathers and sons do indeed kiss all the time.

    • Anonymous

      Carter 3 only sold 3 million copies. There's no such thing as unaccounted sales; all sales count.

    • real real talk

      @REAL TALK, this dude dentaldamboy has always been corny. Why do people keep responding to these gay & super lame posts he puts up here anyway? If nobody replied to these wack posts, he would either disappear or post something that was real or at least funny. That's how you deal with a troll; you don't get mad when he posts nonsense because we all know this clown has no ties with YMCMB.

    • dentaldamboy

      There were 30 million unaccounted copies of Tha Carter 3. BTW, I saw kids kiss their daddies on the lips all the time.

    • TROLLIN ON THESE TROLLS

      WAYNE AND BABY ARE GAY. FATHERS AND SONS DON'T KISS EACH OTHER ON THE LIPS. THEY AREN'T EVEN BIOLOGICALLY RELATED EITHER. AND CASH MONEY DOESN'T OWN SHIT OFF THIS SITE. WAYNE DOESN'T HAVE THE BEST SELLING ALBUM ON CASH MONEY. THAT BELONGS TO JUVENILE "400 DEGREEZ" AT 4X PLATINUM, WHILE C3 IS AT 3X STILL. I THOUGHT YOU WERE AN ACCOUNTANT THERE. HOW COULD YOU MISS THAT?!

    • iamhiphop

      dentalbitch, evrything you say are lies. Cash Money does not own Cheri Media Group. Juvenile has the best selling album in Cash Money history with 400 Degrees selling 8 million copies, while C3 only sold 3 million copies. Wayne is gay and father/son kissing is not natural behavior; it's gay behavior. I never even mentioned Frank Ocean in my comment, but I respect him because he's honest about himself unlike YMCMB, who are gayer than Frank Ocean and put on an act to hide their sexuality.

    • dentaldamboy

      Youainthiphop, Cheri Media group is partially owned by Ash money. Wayne has the best selling album with Tha Carter 3 and suceeded because of him. Wayne is straight and father/son kissing is natural behavior. Besides, you praise Frank Ocean and he's gayer than YMCMB combined.

    • iamhiphop

      dentaldambitch, everything you say are nothing but bullshit lies. Without Mannie Fresh, Cash Money would never exist like it is. Cash Money does not own this website and neither does any other label. You're not an accountant, and you're doing a shitty job trying to convince everyone to believe your lies. YMCMB are gay and father/son kissing is gay.

    • Lboy

      this website is owned by Cheri Media group. Please stop trying to live out your failed fantasy of working for a hiphop label on the comment section of DX, your on the same level if not below trolls right now. Its never to late to go back to school bruhh bruhh.

    • dentaldamboy

      Cash Money owns 20% of this site, split with mayback, 2 chainz, and GOOD music. My job is to convey the message that YMCMB is not gay and that father son kisses aren't gay.

    • REAL TRUTH

      You're getting corny now. If you really are an "accountant' why would you be on a hiphop blog site? Kill yourself -REAL TRUTH

      LMAO @ Lboy- werd he brought up frank ocean outta nowhere to like theres not 100 rappers who suck u couldnt complare but he choose the only gay rapper to try n comeback with..smmfh

    • Lboy

      That comment didn't make any sense what does Frank Ocean have to do with this article or my comment at all? What about my comment made Frank Ocean come into your mind?, If your thinking about Frank Ocean on comments completely un related to him you might want to ask yourself some honest questions and do a little soul searching...

    • Chris Etrata

      Frank Ocean is more honest than YMCMB.

      Go back to your Frank Ocean CD then.

  • Chris Etrata

    In a weird way, Im actually hoping this happens. Drake will then see how much he is being screwed over just like Mannie Fresh before and then will leave Cash Money for greener and better pastures. The reunion also won't last.
