Cash Money Records duo Big Tymers - featuring label founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams, aka Baby, and influential producer, DJ and MC Mannie Fresh - parted ways more than a decade ago, leaving behind five studio albums and the foundations of a New Orleans rap empire, from the label's local beginnings to global phenomenon.
The duo announced a reunion on the heels of Cash Money's partnership with Apple Music and the release of the documentary The Cash Money Story: Before Anythang. While Lil Wayne's fraught relationship with Birdman continues (Wayne once again announced "f- Cash Money at this weekend's Lil Weezyana concert), the reunion marks Fresh's reintroduction to the Cash Money camp.
The Big Tymers perform Friday, Oct. 7 at the House of Blues (225 Decatur St.). Tickets are $47.50 and are available via presale Aug. 30 with general admission opening 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 2.
