Today In Hip-Hop: Big Tymers Release Debut Album

On this day, March 17th, in hip-hop history…


1998: New Orleans group the Big Tymers – consisting of rapper Birdman and producer Mannie Fresh – released their debut album How You Luv That. The album was the first official release from the duo on Cash Money Records, which Birdman co-founded with his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams. The LP featured members of Cash Money’s original line-up, including Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and B.G., and peaked at #25 on Bilboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

The Big Tymers would go on to release four more albums, including a remixed version of How You Luv That in September 1998. Eventually, Mannie Fresh parted ways with the label in 2005. Birdman went on to release four solo albums, with a fifth planned for 2013.
