From New Orleans upstart to hip-hop juggernaut, Cash Money Records remains one of the most influential labels of all time, launching the careers of Juvenile, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and the Young Money movement.
From the late 90s to mid-2000s, Cash Money Records redefined Southern hip-hop, thanks to master beatmaker and one of the best hip-hop producers of all time, Mannie Fresh. Now, Cash Money has opened up its vaults to release the official collection of its most recognizable instrumental tracks entitled, Cash Money: The Instrumentals, out today via digital and streaming platforms.
The collection boasts the instrumentals of some of the most iconic and successful songs in hip-hop history, spanning Juvenile’s ‘Back That Azz Up’ to ‘Stuntin’ Like My Daddy’ by Birdman & Lil Wayne and many more. Additionally, it features career-defining cuts by B.G., Mannie Fresh, Cash Money Millionaires, Hot Boys, and more.
Following the digital release, Cash Money: The Instrumentals will be available on vinyl as a 2LP 180-gram vinyl and as a special limited-edition 2LP 180-gram coloured vinyl on 19 June.
Watch Mannie Fresh breakdown his smash hit ‘Back That Azz Up’ for Juvenile for Genius’s Deconstructed.
Since 1991, Brothers Bryan “Birdman” Williams aka “Baby” and Ronald “Slim” Williams have built Cash Money Records into a legendary force in the music industry. Through tireless devotion and an unparalleled work ethic, the duo founded the legendary label in the New Orleans housing projects and elevated it into a multi-million-dollar empire and cultural tastemaker.
Not only is the company revered as an iconic and enduring global street brand, it’s become the most successful independent record label in America boasting a bevy of chart-dominating, multi-platinum artists and Grammy Award winners and cumulative sales over 100 million albums worldwide, the roster includes Jacquees, Blueface, Deemic, Juvenile and more.
Earlier this year in February, Spotify launched a four-part docu-series entitled New Cash Order that details the label’s meteoric rise to success. Through a series of interviews and archival footage, Slim and Birdman reveal the stories behind their million-dollar deals and how artists Juvenile, Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj catapulted to the top of the charts.
Cash Money: The Instrumentals is set for release on 19 June and can be pre-ordered here.
