In a recent interview with VladTV, Turk, an original member of the Hot Boys, discussed the recent rumors of a Big Tymers reunion featuring Drake and gave props to those in the music industry that still show support towards those who’ve paved the way for them in the business.

“To answer that question, man. Big Tymers can’t be duplicated and Drake knew that,” said Turk in response to Drake recreating the Big Tymers. “You know what I’m saying? Salute to Drake. Shout out to Drake. But you can’t never make another Hot Boys. You can’t never make another Big Tymers. You can’t never make a Cash Money Millionaires, which is all six of us. They can’t be duplicated. Just like you can’t make another Drake. You can’t make another Nicki Minaj. You can’t make another Wayne. You can’t make another one of those. We all had our own identity. We brought different chemistry to that time when we was together. He’ll probably call it the new Big Tymers, but it wouldn’t be the same. It just would be another group.”

If the recreation of the Big Tymers featuring the actor turned rapper isn’t ringing a bell for you, last august Drake sat down with MTV and addressed the rumors, as well as, the slander that came with it.

“I think I heard about it or watched some of it, and then I got people being like, ‘You’ll never be a Big Tymer, your shit is terrible,’ just going off on me. I’m not the one being like, ‘Oh, I’m a new Big Tymer,’” said Drake in the MTV interview.

There were no hard feelings or tension when Turk spoke of the Toronto rapper, who showed his respect to the group by releasing his own version of Juvenile’s unforgettable 1999 hit, “Back That Azz Up”.

“Man, he paid homage,” Turk said. “They was influenced by the Hot Boys. We influenced a lot of them. So, when I see them paying homage, man, its like respect.”
