This week’s Footage Fa Dayz features Cash Money Records’ CEO’s Ronald “Slim” Williams and his brother, Bryan “Baby” Williams.
The year was 1999 and this was one of the first major tours of the Detroit area for the Cash Money crew, who are featured backstage at the State Theater.
The host, Champtown, talked to the young rap CEO’s just before they took to the stage. Baby’s words make one realize just how long they have been releasing their brand of New Orleans Hip-Hop.
“We got eight years in the game already,” Baby said in 1999. “Independent we was the biggest to ever come out. We are already living legends.”
Baby also confirms in the interview that fellow New Orleans rapper/CEO Master P blocked a deal the brother’s almost signed with Priority.
“That was a situation that happened. Priority wanted to bring us over there. It wasn’ t that we was trying to sign with Priority, but when P found that out, he was like if they come we gonna kite. We wasn’t trippin I know the old n***a and we still aint trippin. I aint sweatin what the next n***a do, period.”
Baby is currently on the America’s Most Wanted Tour with Cash Money/Young Money artists Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Jae Millz and others.
