T.I. drops the new single for with Lil Wayne called "Wit Me". This one was admittedly off to a rocky start when Wayne begun the song with the line, "put my dick in your face" (yup, seriously), but his verse got better as it went on and T.I.'s verse was a pretty analytical one as well. I think longtime fans of both will enjoy this record and it's a borderline *Tibs Fav. for me. Come back tonight when the music video will premiere!
Here is a dope new weekend roundup of a variety of news and tidbits that happened amongst all the #YeezySeason mania that is going on, hah!
First off, up above, De La Soul performed live with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon. Above is the feel-good "A Rollerskating Jam Named Saturdays" and "Jenifa Taught Me" can be viewed here. De La's got a new album coming out (!) entitled You're Welcome, slated for this Fall.
An intriguing upcoming collab was announced — Mario & Nicki Minaj! Mario revealed the single on the way, produced by Polow Da Don, via a handwritten note from the heart (seen below). May 21st, you can expect to hear this.
The day before (i.e. tomorrow), T.I. will release his new single with Lil Wayne "Wit Me". You can catch the teaser trailer from last Friday here and peep the new single art below.
And below that, you'll notice the tracklist to Ludacris' upcoming mixtape, IDGAF. There's plenty of big-name features on the 10-track opus, set to be released May 24th. Whew! How bout that for some quick-hit news?!
Wait, one late addition: Action Bronson tweeted a collab project with Harry Fraud called Saab Stories will be impacting early June.

Yesterday, Mannie Fresh addressed the news that Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Drake are coming together for a new Big Tymers album. A lot of people were interested to hear what he had to say since he was not a part of the project. Welp, as you may have expected...
“It’s kinda like doing a Jackson 5 album with Boyz II Men. Two different eras, great artists, but Boyz II Men is not the Jackson 5. I don’t bash Cash Money, Birdman, or none of them. It’s really on, I’m just striving on just getting what I deserve, you know, what I put in. Honestly I think Drake is a great artist, I think Wayne is a great artist, but they not the Big Tymers.”
I’m too old to be making dis songs. I’m too wise to be making shots at anybody, but my thing is I’m a business man at the end of it. You can call it whatever you want to call it, but you can’t call it a Big Tymers album.”
I agree with Mannie... they're not the original group; they should call themselves something else. We'll see if the album even materializes as well... your thoughts?? (Below, Mannie reflects on his milestones as a Big Tymer).
On yesterday's RapFix, Lil Wayne & Birdman confirmed and revealed a few new details about their upcoming projects. Most notably, the confirmation of what came out the day before: a new Big Tymers album with Drake. Birdman says Mannie Fresh will not be involved, however.
Also, Wayne says he still plans to drop the love song album, Devol, and Jae Millz, Lil Chuckee and T-Rone conclude the show with some new bars. Watch above and below!
Lil Wayne spoke with MTV today, hinting at a possible reunion of the Big Tymers for a new album with none other than Drake. "There should be a lot in between there," Wayne told MTV News of what will come between now and his final LP. "It's no time soon." MTV hints at more details to come in tomorrow's edition of RapFix when Tunechi, Birdman, and Rich Gang come through.
