Mannie Fresh and Birdman won’t be pushing out a new project on until the cash money is right.

New Orleans rapper/producer Mannie Fresh said that he won’t be laying down any rhymes or beats for the Big Tymers reunion album until the business end is in place.

“Facts and figures,” he told MTV News during NBA All-Star weekend. “That’s where we at right now. Facts and figures. We just trying to lay down a plan for it, a blueprint and we’ll see what happens from there.”

Heads started turning when talks of a Big Tymers album without Fresh, a founding member of the group, surfaced. Birdman then said in an interview last year that he had been chopping it up with his former comrade and was going to include him on the album, which was said to also feature Drake and Lil’ Wayne.

The “Still Fly” rapper said that he and Birdman are in negotiations while Fresh is also chipping away at a joint album with Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) titled OMFGOD.
