Big Tymers to Reunite for Chicago Concert
It's been more than 10 years since the Big Tymers released the album Big Money Heavyweight, but the duo of Birdman and Mannie Fresh will now be getting back together.
On Nov. 4, the Big Tymers will reunite for a Fake Shore Drive concert. Hosted by Red Bull Sound Select, the show will take place at Chicago's Portage Theater and include Tee Grizzley as the opener. According to an Instagram post, concertgoers can also expect a "slew of very special guests.""
After dropping Big Money Heavyweight in 2003, producer Mannie Fresh left Cash Money Records for Def Jam, leaving the duo's future in question. But in 2013, talks of a new Big Tymers album featuring Birdman, Lil Wayne and Drake began to surface, though Drizzy eventually shot those rumors down.
"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 said. "I’m not the one being like, ‘Oh, I’m a new Big Tymer.'"
While there hasn't been news of a Mannie Fresh and Birdman album, the producer eventually did come around to the idea, telling MTV in 2014, "We just trying to lay down a plan for it, a blueprint and we'll see what happens from there. That's where we at right now. Facts and figures."
Tickets for the Big Tymers reunion concert are on sale now.
