Cash Money has added a new artist to its roster.
Famed songwriter/producer, RedOne, has signed to Birdman and Slim’s label.
Reports are that RedOne signed the deal with Ronald "Slim" Williams and Bryan "Baby" Williams, so that his own label, 2101 Records, could be brought under the Cash Money umbrella. Cash Money itself is a part of the Universal Music Group. RedOne is responsible for the creation of a number of smash hit tracks, including Nicki Minaj’s Starships, Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, and Jennifer Lopez’s On The Floor.
“I have always been impressed with the way Slim and Baby do business,” said RedOne, explaining his decision to ink the deal. “Their determination to build their artists’ careers from the ground to superstardom shows their sheer commitment. I have strived to work with the best in the industry throughout my career and this opportunity to partner my 2101 label with Cash Money on these projects is one such example. Together, we’ll be able to continue to help build global stars and make hit music that we hope fans around the world will enjoy.”
“We consider Cash Money a family, and RedOne fits right in,” Slim explained. “He is a world-class producer, songwriter, musician, and now record executive who just adds to what we have built here, and look forward to expanding in the years ahead.”
