The latest group Rich Gang put together by Birdman and Cash Money/ Young Money has brought out a few questions. So when Birdman stopped by MTV’s RapFix Live this week to discuss the new project, he addressed the questions that some of us have been requiring to know, especially why Chris Brown appears on the new compilation album but no Drake.
“Drake was recording out of the country, and I got songs because we’re doing a Big Tymers album. So, I said we’re gonna hold that,” Birdman explained. “We’re gonna do our Big Tymers thing. I think it will be more special. We’ll drop a Big Tymers record in September/October.”
Referring to the beef between Breezy and Drizzy which has been brewing for quite some time, Birdman says he knows “nothing about that.”
“The question you asking is what a lot of people are going to ask. [Chris Brown?] Nah, nah, nah, I ain’t got nothing to do with the Chris Brown and Drake thing,” he said. “I don’t know nothing about that. Drake’s blood. That’s my family, that’s my love and we rock with Chris, but I don’t know nothing about their differences.”
Moving on, Birdman clarified why former Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh isn’t involved in the forthcoming Big Tymers project, seeing that they worked together in the early 2000s.
“I’ve been talking to Fresh a lot. We talk every other day, we been talking about doing music; so matter of fact, we gonna get in,” Birdman revealed.
He continued: “Me and Fresh ain’t got no problem, we never had no problem. It’s been a minute and we plan on working again. Juve out here too. Ain’t nobody tripping, we’re gonna definitely work again. I was been tryin’ to do that, he didn’t wanna do it. I thought, personally, he didn’t want no part of it because it been dead. We been lettin’ it live in the grave, ain’t nobody picked it up. It was Wayne’s decision to say ‘Let’s rock with this Big Tymers,’ besides that it’s been in the grave, nobody touched it. He didn’t touch it…we didn’t touch it, because I wanted to do it years ago. But when I spoke to him, he felt different. He’s my brother, I got nothing but love for him, and we’re going to work together again soon.”
