Tyson: Bob Foy/Retna UK

The new video from rowdy New Orleans rappers Big Tymers packs some extra punch: to wit, a guest appearance by Mike Tyson. Turns out Iron Mike agreed to appear in the clip for ”10 Ways” as a favor to Brian ”Baby” Williams, the copresident of Big Tymers’ label, Cash Money Records. Williams says the fighter, whom he met in Las Vegas a couple of years back, is interested in working with the label, possibly developing a female vocalist or two.

”I told Mike we’ll do whatever, whenever, however,” says Williams. ”We got a good friendship. It ain’t nothin’ signed, it’s just verbal.” Williams also told Tyson that a few Cash Money artists, including Juvenile and the Hot Boyz, will write a song and perform it at the pugilist’s as yet unscheduled next fight. Tyson was unavailable for comment, but perhaps Cash Money should offer him an A&R job: He’ll probably bite.
