Cash Money Records has reached a rather amazing milestone in the history of the record label: 500 million songs sold worldwide.
Cash Money Records, which was founded in 1991, had one of their best years in their 21-year history, which included sponsorship deals for Lil Wayne, awards for Nicki Minaj and a cover story for Billboard on founders Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams.
“There is no more dynamic and prolific a label than Cash Money Records and the YMCMB family — point-blank. We’re proud of every one of our artists and their contribution to our legacy,” Bryan “Birdman” Williams told AHH in a statement today (November 19).
“What’s most humbling is the global reaction to our story. Slim and I built this label from the ground up and seeing our brand connect with people across borders, culture and language makes us appreciate every one of our fans worldwide. We can’t wait to deliver another 500 million bangers,” Bryan Williams said.
In addition to releasing hit material by Jay Sean, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, who has more songs posted on the Billboard charts than Elvis, Cash Money Records has an impressive roster of artists.
Drake, Tyga, Shanelle, Busta Rhymes, Mystikal, Bow Wow, Cool & Dre, Kevin Rudloff, Fred Durst and Dj Khaled are among the artists currently signed to Cash Money Records.
“Success is something that Slim and I have always aimed for. It feels great to sell 500 million songs but fans should know, we aren’t going to stop now, and will continue our legacy,” Bryan Williams said.
