Past members

Big Tymers (commonly stylised as Big Tymer$) was an American hip hop duo from New Orleans, Louisiana. It consisted of Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman (then known as Baby) and Cash Money in-house producer Mannie Fresh.

Big Tymers released their debut album in 1997 titled How You Luv That, and a re-release version of the album in 1999 titled How You Luv That Vol. 2 gave them an abundant amount of publicity afterwards. Big Tymers released their first Platinum-selling album, I Got That Work, in 2000. They released their most commercially successful album, Hood Rich, in 2002, which spawned a major hit in the single "Still Fly", peaking at #11 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Big Tymers' final album was Big Money Heavyweight, released in 2003.

In 2005, Mannie Fresh resigned from Cash Money due to a financial dispute with executives Birdman and brother Roland "Slim" Williams, bringing an end to the group.

Lil Wayne announced in 2013 that he would be restarting the group alongside Birdman and Drake, but without any contribution from Mannie Fresh. Though an album was planned, no music by the new group ever came to fruition.
