Cash Money Records co-CEOs and founders Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams are proud to welcome legendary broadcast personality, DJ and community leader Greg Street to both the Cash Money Records and Cash Money Content families. This is a terrific move for everyone involved, that's for sure.
"Greg Street is a much valued and respected colleague of the YMCMB family," states Bryan "Birdman" Williams. "Slim and I collaborated with him so often, we decided the next step would be to extend a deal to him that would allow him to bring his unique voice and perspective to both our label and publishing company." The unique deal is two fold as Street, one of the most recognizable voices in radio and a current on air host at Atlanta's influential V-103/WVEE, will be signed to both Cash Money Records and Cash Money Content, the book publishing arm of the Cash Money empire.
For his work with Cash Money Records, Street will curate albums as well as singles, utilizing previously unreleased material as well as new material from the recording artists in the YMCMB family. Joining Cash Money Content, Street, a longtime proponent of literacy and the founder of the Greg Street Scholarship Fund Program, We Need 2 Read (), will collaborate on various book related content and author his own books.
Greg Street has a long-standing relationship with the YMCMB family, spanning nearly two decades. "I have never once doubted the power of Birdman and Slim, and the Cash Money empire as a whole. My goal is to add in making Cash Money Records the first billion dollar independent label by putting major plays together for the brand, in and outside of selling records. I'm honored to have worked with and supported the YMCMB family since the early 1990s and look forward to expanding the relationship."
Are you psyched about this venture and what it looks to produce? We are! We love the book tie-in, too. Gotta keep reading, kids.
