Drake "Sure" He'll Be Involved With Big Tymers Album

Drake says he's not trying to become a new Big Tymer, addresses Big Tymers reunion album criticism.

Talk of a new Big Tymers album has remained relatively heavy following this year’s announcement of a reunion project from the famed New Orleans group and although a Big Tymers reunion album seems certain, those involved in the creation of the project still remain unclear.

In May, Birdman revealed news of a reunion album and to the criticism of a number of fans he stated that producer and former Big Tymers member Mannie Fresh would not be involved and the group would instead consist of Young Money artists Lil Wayne and Drake.

Drake recently shared his thoughts on the Big Tymers project with MTV News and despite not being fully aware of what his involvement with the album may be; he confirmed that he will be involved in some way.

“I didn’t get the phone call about that, but I mean, I’m sure I’ll be involved…I would have loved to bring the Big Tymers out tonight too. It would have been crazy. Maybe we’ll save that for next year. But yeah, Mannie Fresh is an incredible guy musically and of course Birdman is one of a kind,” Drake revealed.

During his interview, Drake laughed off criticism from those unhappy with the announcement of a new Big Tymers group and assured fans that he’s more concerned with working on a new project as opposed to becoming a replacement Big Tymer.

“I think I heard about it or watched some of it but—and then I got like people being like, ‘You’ll never be a Big Tymer. Your shit is terrible.’ Just like going off on me,” said the Young Money rapper. “I’m not the one being like, ‘Oh, I’m a new Big Tymer.’ I’m down to work on anything. Birdman calls me to work on something, I’mma work on it.”

A set release date for the Big Tymers reunion album has yet to be announced.

    "all of the great rappers had a unique sound... Ludacris" He had some amusing songs, but he was in no way a great rapper.

      idk about a great rapper perse but i definetly think luda mixes his words well for a down south cat. when i think of lyricists i dont count to many down south artists in that talk. ludacris is usually one of them though. just my opinion. may catch hate but whatever.

  • Drake runs rap

    1) Age has a lot to do with it if you are young and stay consistent your fan base grows you sell more you break records you grow larger and more established 2) How many hot new artists since 2005 have came and had a big impact as drake in hiphop? How many have went double platinum and had countless hit songs like drake? no body 3) Who else in the rap game has a the buzz drake has right now? Drake is everywhere on the radio on youtube his songs get the highest views most dounloads he is the 1 talked about by mainstream music fans 4)Drake has officially set the record for most number one singles (10 total) on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. And it appears that he has 2 Chainz to thank as their collaboration, "No Lie," just hit topped the chart. With this news, Drizzy passes previous record holder, Jay-Z, who had nine chart-topping cuts. Below is a breakdown of the top four artists in this realm. And just to note: the total number, like Drizzy's 10, for example, includes both his own tracks and those he appeared on as a guest. 1. Drake [2009] - 10 (3 Lead, 7 Collaborations) 2. Jay-Z [1995] - 9 (4 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 3. Lil Wayne [1999] - 8 (3 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 4. Kanye West [2003] - 6 (3 Lead, 3 Collaborations) There you go in 4 years he has had more chart topping hits than jay z and the rest of the vets so you are the 1 claiming false. 5)Drake sold 700k in the first week last album he dropped and he has gotten more popular eminem is a vet in the game but he has lost his buzz 6)Drake secures the Number 19 spot on the "Top 50 Worldwide Tours" list thanks to his Club Paradise Tour.Other artists featured on the Top 50 Worldwide Tours list include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, and The Black Keys.

    I told you drake wanted to stay at ymcmb. Birdman just knew that Drake was working on his album so decided not to call him up for rich gang.

  • Drake runs rap

    1)Drake has the most number 1 hits at the age of 26 2) No other artist from the new wave of rappers goes double platinum like drake does 3) Drake is breaking a lot of records and he hasn't even reached 30 yet 4) Drake is the face of rap everyone listens to rap for drake 5)Drake is the only 1 capable to go platinum first weak these days and drake will go down as the greatest of all time when its all said and done 6)Drakes tours are the highest selling out of all rappers drake runs rap its a fact stop denying.

    Drake is a pop artist, hip hop isnt in his genes what so ever. He's not conscious, not aggressive in anyway. His delivery isnt metaphorical & he sings off key with no range , cant hold a note or run his voice. Theres a saying, you can make anyone into a star, he would of NEVER survived in the 90's. All he do is pop shit in interviews then shut his mouth when someone challenges him, any male artist anyway. Stop catagorizing him as hip hop artist, smh crazy! hes mediocre and very average, thats it. good for radio, hes radio friendly with his bieber-pop!!

    • clapp

      drake is weak. every1 in here is just into soft pop sounds with some 3rd class singing. drake belongs to that, hes nothing special and that fits perfectly for the radio:)

      Some of my favorite hip-hop artists include: ATCQ, Ice Cube, Little Brother, Royce Da 5'9, Tha Alkaholiks, Kendrick Lamar, Wu-Tang, Jean Grae, Ill Bill, Elzhi, T.I. Kweli, Kool G. Rap, Rakim, Nas, Jay-Z, Pun, El-P, Ab-Soul, Action Bronson, J. Cole, Wale AND DRAKE!!! That's right, DRAKE! People who claim to only listen to "real hip-hop" and lecture others are just as annoying and idiotic as those who only listen to Waka, Gucci, Chief Keef and French Montana! SHUT THE FUCK UP!

  • Drake runs rap

    drake runs the rap game after drakes next album goes platinum in a week everyone will have to face the facts that drake is the king of this rap shit

    "birdman is one of a kind" - HE SURE AS HELL IS LOL

  • Anonymous

    Participating in this project is beneath Drake. Mannie ain't big time. He's fat and struggling.

  • Fans

    IT CAN'T BE A BIG TYMER ALBUM WITHOUT MANNIE FRESH. I DON'T GIVE A F*CK IF HE OWNS THE NAME. IT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE IF THE BIG TYMER( MANNIE FRESH & BIRDMAN) MAKE ANOTHER ALBUM.

  • FlyQ the Anchor

    Okay I apologize in advance. I got no other route for exposure right now so i'm trolling you fine people here at hiphopdx. Just take 4 minutes to listen to my remix of "Im A Coke Boy" SPOILER: its not about cocaine, lame right? For real though, give me a shot. PS. keep scrolling if you don't like lyrical music... keep scrolling if you like Future... https://soundcloud.com/theanchor/coulda-been flyqtheanchor@gmail.com for anybody interested in collabs.

    • FlyQ the Anchor

      I appreciate most of what you're saying but it seems like you're saying if I'm not a G I shouldn't rap. And just cause I'm white doesn't mean my parents bought what I own...

    • More Feedback

      Oh and I just read your comment and caught what you said about lyrics and whatever. Yeah it's not really that lyrical either. I think you meant it actually has a concept. Peace.

    • More Feedback

      You coulda been a rapper!! Ohhhh... Okay you know you served that one up for us FlyQ... I get it man, I see you bruh. I can even see the corny video to this too. It might be funny, on the other hand it might just be lame. I give you this, at least you're in your lane bruh. It's not a new lane or anything dope in my opinion, just a lane. definitely not my shit through man. Peace.

    • feedback

      I dunno man, keep trying. You're skillset is elementary at its best. Work on developing a sound, all of the great rappers had a unique sound and voice...Kool G Rap, Nas, 2Pac, Notorious, Eminem, TI, Ludacris, etc. Right now you're sounding like this mac miller, big sean group of corny motherfuckers that have a very boring, zzzz sound. Use your unique background if you're gonna rap. Nobody listens to hiphop to hear about the average joe does. People listen to hiphop cause the delivery of the message is coming from someone who has been through profound circumstantial experiences (think 50Cent, TI, Young Jeezy, etc) If you're parents bought your pc, mic, and software to record this and u haven't done a damn thing to make any earnings on your own, then you may want to rethink the rapping thing. Honesty is tough to swallow.

  • dentaldamboy

    Drake is involved with big tymers. Nothing about him suggest he's leaving ymcmb. Mannie Fresh tried to rape birdman.
