New Orleans Honors Birdman And Slim With Street Naming As Cash Money Records Celebrates 30th Anniversary.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Birdman and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams have been honored with a street name in New Orleans as Cash Money Records celebrates its 30th anniversary. The intersection of Saratoga St. and Erato St. will now be known as Williams Brothers Way.

The co-founders of Cash Money still have connections to the neighborhood, as their mother runs a nearby bar, and the renaming ceremony took place close to their childhood home.

The event featured appearances from former signees Juvenile and B.G., along with other friends and fans.

Marc H. Morial, National Urban League President and former mayor of New Orleans, expressed pride in the street being named after ‘Baby’ and ‘Slim’, acknowledging their significant contributions to the music industry and the local community.

Cash Money will celebrate its 30th anniversary at the Essence Festival this weekend, where Birdman will perform with past and present artists from the label. A full reunion of the Hot Boys, Lil Wayne, and Mannie Fresh is expected, along with appearances by former artists like Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Recently, Birdman and Slim were honored at the YouTube Leaders & Legends Gala in Los Angeles, where they were celebrated by notable music industry figures such as YouTube’s head of music Lyor Cohen, BMI’s vice president of creative Catherine Brewton, producer Polow Da Don, and Republic Records’ chief executives Avery and Monte Lipman.

During his speech, Birdman reflected on his and Slim’s early days and their desire to use their label to prevent others from joining gangs. He shared his experiences growing up in New Orleans and his mission to save lives by getting young talents like B.G. and Lil Wayne into the studio instead of the streets.
