Ronald Williams, better known by the name of Ronald Slim, is a famous American record producer, rap artist, as well as a businessman. An older brother of popular rapper Bryan Williams, often referred to by a stage name of Birdman, Ronald Slim is perhaps best known as a co-founder of the record label called “Cash Money Records”, which he established in 1991, together with his brother Birdman, together serving as the CEOs of the company. “Cash Money Records” started out as a company with the aim to sign talented local artists and help them establish themselves in the industry.

However, in 1995 “Cash Money Records” signed Lil Wayne, Young Buck and B. G. to their label, which signified the beginning of the second wave of artists to represent the company. As a record label, “Cash Money Records” rose to fame in 1998, when some of its artists attracted the attention of the “Universal Records” label, which resulted in a $30 million contract that Slim and Birdman signed with the company. This contract brought many positive changes in the label, one of them being the release of Juvenile’s third studio album called “400 Degreez”, which managed to sell more than five million copies worldwide. Around the same time, such artists as Hot Boys, Lil Wayne and B.G. excelled in the music industry, and brought more fame to the label. Over the years, “Cash Money Records” has had such artists as Nicki Minaj, Drake, DJ Khaled, Limp Bizkit, Paris Hilton and Bow Wow signed to their label.
