“You can use this space to talk about how the Big Tymers are back…ha ha, just kidding…Big Tymers aren’t back!” Aggressively mediocre records like Project English and Hood Rich don’t help. (But is it true the latter debuted at #1?!) It’s kind of a shame though because I miss Mannie Fresh (the producer…as a rapper he sounds like he’d get his a$$ handed to him by JJ Fad) in the charts, especially with the wooden thump into auto-cannibalizm the Neptunes have taken. It’s weird to think Juvenile’s rise and fall as the “new thing” was only two or three years ago: that voice like wet corn bread sluiced through gold teeth and Fresh’s ridiculously archaic (yet undeniably of-the-moment) 808-symphonies.
