    Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams founded Cash Money Records over twenty years ago. New Orleans rap collective the Hot Boys were one of Cash Money's earliest successes, which has since turned into perhaps the flashiest label of them all. In 2005, former Hot Boy Lil Wayne created his own CMR imprint, Young Money Entertainment. Young Money released their debut album We Are Young Money in 2009, which featured hits like "We Be Steady Mobbin" and "Bed Rock". Following the album's release, solo careers of Tyga, Nicki Minaj, and Drake took off.

Wayne does show up for one solo track on the back half of the album, however. Elsewhere, we get songs billed to Lil Twist, Gudda Gudda, Shanell, and newcomer, Euro.

"25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this," he said, adding with sincerity, "I didn't smile when I said that."

    Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable. Now, it looks as though they'll split apart or crumble together.
