During today’s episode of RapFix Live, Sway got Mannie Fresh on Skype to speak on Shit’s plan of bringing the Big Tymers name back with Lil Wayne and Drake instead of himself. The response? There is no Big Tymers without Mannie Fresh.
Drake is a great artist. Wayne is a great artist. But they aren’t Big Tymers. It’s like doing a Jackson 5 album with Boyz II Men.
Pretty much my thoughts exactly, minus the whole “Wayne is a great artist” thing.
During the latest episode of MTV’s RapFixLive, Lil Wayne and ‘Shit chop it up with Sway about a variety of topics. One of the more interesting quotes came from Lil Wayne’s pops as he stated that Big Tymers now consists of Wayne, Drake and himself. I guess that clears this up, but umm… how is there gonna be anything Big Tymers-related without the man who basically made the group what it was, Mannie Fresh? *shrugs… hit the jump to check the clip and hit the c-section below and let us know your thoughts on the whole thing.
Mannie and Maya have been working together lately, and the two plan on releasing a joint project together. This track severs as both the first offering from that joint project and Mayalino’s upcoming K.I.L.O.S. tape. Props to X.
In preparation of the release of Yasiin and Mannie Fresh’s upcoming LP, OMFGOD, we are blessed with the first leak, Black Jesus over some minimalist Mannie Fresh production. 2Fresh, 2Dope. Hit the jump for a video of Yasiin performing the song in Phoenix, Arizona.
We’ve seen the two working in the studio, now Mannie Fresh has confirmed that his OMFGOD project with Mos Def is complete and is currently in the mixing stage. Keeping it to a feature-free 10-track project, Mannie shares some thoughts with HipHopDX.
We recorded way more than that. But rather than to [just] have somebody say like, ‘Oh, wow’ – I think a lot of times when you do that you throw away music. So, I just wanna give people like ten bangers and let’s be out.
Mos is a Hip Hop head, so it kinda came easy. And, by him being a Mannie Fresh fan, and me being his fan, it came real easy. And I think that’s the way the process should be. We should have fun. It was no stress; we didn’t have no budgets from nobody, we didn’t have nobody hanging over us, no A&Rs. It was just something that we decided to do.
The New Orleans producer also revealed that they had a “couple of offers” from labels but they’ve decided to release it digitally on their own instead. Dope!
