Facts are facts: The Big Tymers are Mannie Fresh and Baby. Period. 

But Cash Money seems to disagree. Recently, Baby and Lil Wayne appeared on RapFix and announced that a Big Tymers album is on the way...except that the lineup is Baby, Wanye, and Drake. With no Mannie Fresh. 

Today, Mannie Fresh appeared on RapFix himself to address the issue. Although he said Lil Wayne and Drake are both great artists, he said they are "not the Big Tymers."

"It's kinda like doing a Jackson 5 album with Boyz II Men," said Mannie, via Skype. "Two different eras, great artists, but Boyz II Men is not the Jackson 5."

(Just so we're clear, the Big Tymers were definitely not the Jackson 5. But you get what Mannie is trying to say.)

Mannie also pointed out the outrage amongst fans and bloggers about the fact the album was being marketed under the Big Tymers name even though he woulnd't be included. 

Overall, Mannie seemed happy with where he's at in life and said he has no beef with anyone at Cash Money, he just feels they need to pay him what he's owned. 

They need to just pay the man so we can hear someone rap over Mannie Fresh beats again.
