Cash Money Records Reaches Milestone: 500 Million Songs Sold Worldwide

(AllHipHop News) 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 AllHipHop.com 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.

        You can’t even spell “Hating”. If your going to turn it into slang at least spell it proper. “Hatin” not “Hatein”.

  • Oknas

    im sure baby and wayne kissed more than that

  • therealest1

    Birdman & Lil Wayne shows it pays off to be a fake Blood. The only ones benefiting are Birdman & Lil Wayne since they’re kissing partners and butt buddies. Mannie Fresh sure wasn’t paid properly since he isn’t a kissing partner.

  • Yea its me

    Master P still has them beat. Selling that many songs is cool but No Limit sold 75 Million “Records”. $10 per album vs $.99 per song.
