Back in May, Birdman revealed that there will be a new Big Tymers album coming soon. However, he did mention that original member Mannie Fresh will not be involved with the project, but instead Lil’ Wayne and Drake will be new members of the Big Tymers. Well apparently Drake did not get the memo, as he was caught off guard when asked about the project.
MTV sat down with Drake after the OVO Fest, and asked him how was the new Big Tymers album coming along. His initial look was puzzling and confused, as if he had no clue what the reporter was talking about- that was definitely the case. “I didn’t get the phone call about that,” he said, “but I’m sure I’ll be involved.”
Apparently Birdman has not reached out to Drake to talk about the album, but he did become aware of it when Birdman announced it on MTV. “I think I heard about it or watched some of it, and then I got people being like, ‘You’ll never be a Big Tymer, your shit is terrible — just going off on me,” he continued.
Although all of this sounded like news to him, Drake added that he is willing to contribute to the project. “I’m down though, to work on anything. If Birdman calls me to work on something I’ma work on it.”
