I Got That Workby Big Tymers
On the strength of slang-infested, platinum-selling albums by Juvenile and Lil Wayne, the Hot Boys clique (hailing from New Orleans' Magnolia Projects) have transformed their Cash Money label into a billion-dollar industry. And the release of the Big Tymers' I GOT THAT WORK is sure to fatten the Cash Money empire's bankroll. Comprised of the label's co-CEO Bryan "Baby" Williams and in-house producer Mannie Fresh, the Big Tymers elevate the playa lifestyle to new levels of materialism on such car-crazy and ice-obsessed tracks as "Sunday Night" and "#1 Stunna." The lead single asks everybody to "Get Your Roll On," but if you're not cruisin' in a chromed-out SUV with 20-inch wheels you best stay at home. Predictable lyrics aside, the secret to Cash Money's success lies in Fresh's electro-flavored Southern bounce, a mix of intricate drum programming with live bass and synthesizers. This infectious beat style, featured prominently on tracks such as "Snake" and "Pimp On," is derived as much from '70s R&B as it is from classic hip-hop. And, of course, the Big Tymers get a little help from their friends, as Juvenile, Lil Wayne, and the B. G. guest on more than half the tracks. Fun as it is, I GOT THAT WORK isn't strictly a party affair. On the uplifting "My Life," the crew takes a break from flossin' to speak out against drugs and violence. Now that's really "Bling, Bling." Ryan Crosby

The new Big Tymers' record 'I got that work' has to be one of the greatest rap albums to be released this year. There are many different beats as well as rhymes but they still kept their 'stuntastic' sense of rhyming. Truly a work of art.
THE BIG TYMERS IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST GROUPS OUT AND WHAT EVER THEY COME OUT WITH IS ALWAYS GOOD.
I would love to just stand beside the hotboyz and bigtimers, they are bomb and I love the way they flow.*
this cd rules bye it
Big tymers have done it again. They add awesome lyrics to catchy beats. This is why I think that big tymers are one of my fav rap bands.
