Wait… what? According to Drake, who was sitting down with MTV after the OVO Fest, he wasn’t even aware of the new Big Tymers project that Birdman recently stated would feature Lil Wayne and Drake replacing Mannie Fresh.
“I didn’t get the phone call about that,” Drake told MTV News, clearly caught off guard by the question, and even glancing over at his management for answers. “But I’m sure I’ll be involved.”
“Mannie Fresh is an incredible guy and of course Birdman is one of a kind,” he said. “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.”
“So I’m not the one being like, ‘Oh I’m a new Big Tymer,’” he added, laughing. “[But] I’m down though, to work on anything. If Birdman calls me to work on something I’ma work on it.”
I guess that works out though, as a couple weeks ago, the guy with the stars tattooed on his cranium revealed that he and Mannie Fresh don’t have any issues and plan on working together again.
