When you hear the name “Cash Money Millionaires” you probably think of the picture above. I do anyways. These guys were popular as shit about 10-15 years ago. Birdman, Wayne, Mannie Fresh, The Hot Boyz… yeah they were the business.
Then, as is usually the case when artists run labels, it all fell apart and they all went their separate ways. The only two that stuck together were Lil’ Wayne and Birdman. Over the next few years each member sporadically put out solo albums, never quite the success of their Cash Money days.
Why am I bringing this up exactly? Simple.. Cash Money is still here, and stronger than ever. And DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK! Ok.. call it one, because that’s exactly what it is.
Wayne started his own sub-label called Young Money, and with that, him and Birdman are making more money now than they ever did in their “heyday.”
Just take a look at this roster of today’s artists: Birdman, Lil’ Wayne, Drake, Kevin Rudolf, Nicki Minaj.. and those are just their most popular. All of them have become huge names in the music industry and raking in a TON of money.
Don’t call it a comeback.
