Big Tymers

Cash Money/Universal Records is set to release the Big Tymers' third CD, "Big Money Heavyweight" on December 9, 2003. Comprised of Cash Money co-CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams and the label's inimitable in-house producer/rapper Mannie Fresh, the newest effort reunites the duo with their long-time label-mate Juvenile.

Big Money Heavyweight is a hybrid of hip-hop, funk and bounce beats, and contains top-notch collaborations: on "Back Up," the duo are joined by Juvenile; "Gangsta Girl" which was written, produced and arranged by the R&B Piped-Piper himself, R. Kelly. While on "I'll Take You There," and "My Life," listeners will be delighted by the funky underground vocals of the eclectic Joi. Petey Pablo, Ludacris, red-hot producer Jazze Pha, Lil Wayne, and other Cash Money artists also lend their vocals to Big Money Heavyweight.

"This Is How We Do," the first single from Big Money Heavyweight continues to be a mainstay at urban radio and on BET, while the newest single "Gangsta Girl" is rapidly growing at radio, and the video is the #11 most played video on BET.

Big Money Heavyweight follows the duo's platinum-selling album Hood Rich (2002), which was the first Cash Money CD to debut #1 on the Billboard charts. Hood Rich also contained the label's first Grammy nomination (a "Best Rap Song By Duo or Group" nod for the anthemic hit "Still Fly"). Last month, Baby, who released his gold-selling debut Birdman earlier this year, was named "Trendsetter of The Year" at the 2003 Source Awards.

Living up to this honor, the Big Tymers continue to set new trends. USA Today's 3-star album review praises Big Money Heavyweight for being "funkier" and "more soulful" and declares that the Big Tymers can "still swagger with the best of them."
