    #YMCMB is where it's at, son!

    The YMCMB family has expanded, adding more quality to the roster.

    Cash Money Records co-CEOs and founders Ronald "Slim" Williams and Bryan "Birdman" Williams are proud to welcome Australian-based DJ and production duo, the Stafford Brothers, to the Cash Money Records and YMCMB family. One of the fastest growing phenomena in the global dance music scene, Stafford Brothers is the first ever electronic music act to sign with Cash Money Records.

    It's a fine addition to the already-impressive Cash Money roster, that's for sure.

    So let us introduce you to the Stafford Bros.

    Known for their passionate, high voltage live shows, the Stafford Brothers have emerged as one of the top touring dance acts, performing globally and touring with the likes of dance luminaries The Prodigy and headlining festivals such as Australia's Future Music Festival alongside Ke$ha and The Chemical Brothers. The prodigal duo has put out over 50 releases globally and garnered their own popular reality television program, The Stafford Brothers, on FOX8, Australia's largest cable network.

    "The Stafford Brothers blew me away with their energy, superb production skills and strong remixes," says Bryan "Birdman" Williams, who co-founded Cash Money Records alongside his brother, Ronald "Slim" Williams. "Their music may have a party vibe, but that didn't fool Slim and I. With their ownership of nightclubs, their own reality television show, international tours and dedication to their craft, we knew the Stafford Brothers were serious and would fit right in with the hardworking YMCMB family."

    "Every artist that we were keen to collaborate with seemed to be part of the YMCMBfamily," says Matt Stafford. "We had the chance to attend Lil Wayne's 30th birthday party and spend time with Birdman, Slim, Lil Wayne and the whole crew and we felt right at home amongst the family. We knew we could do great work under Slim & Birdman's direction, with the YMCMB artists." Adds Chris Stafford, "There was no question. Hailing from Australia, what could be better than signing to Cash Money Records, an iconic US label that has a global fan base?"

    Are you going to check out the Stafford Brothers? You should, stat! Or for pun's sake, "staff!"
