Hip Hop Brothers ‘Birdman’ and ‘Slim’ Williams to Become Oil Tycoons
February 14, 2010
(ChattahBox)—With all of the bling amassed by Cash Money Record founders, Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Birdman” Williams, the two hip hop moguls are now investing some cash money into the oil business. The Williams brothers founded an oil exploration company named Bronald Oil & Gas LLC, which is focused on “exploration and development properties in Osage County, Oklahoma, as well as in Texas, Louisiana and Florida in the United States and in Central America.” Although, the company does not yet have any staff or investors, the fans of the Cash Money owners, point out that Bryan “Birdman” Williams must be serious about the new oil venture, because he now sports a tattoo of an oil well on his shaved head.
The colorful Williams brothers founded Cash Money records in the early ‘90s from the New Orleans housing projects. And the record label has since sold more than 45 million albums, receiving dozens of multiplatinum and gold awards from artists such as, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, B.G., and Baby/Birdman, two of Bryan’s hip-hop alter egos.
The information and mission statement on the Web site of Bronald Oil & Gas LLC states that the company “hopes to partner with other developers to jointly exploit significant additional assets by leveraging Bronald’s infrastructure.”
In the biography provided on the oil company’s Web site, Birdman notes that he has big plans for the expansion of Cash Money Records:
“I want to make this a full-fledged entertainment and music company for all genres of music, from pop and rock to country and gospel,” says Slim. “I also want to make the film company just as big, if not bigger, than the record label. I want it all…music, publishing, film, videogames, DVD.
Bryan “Birdman” Williams, aka, “Baby” can now ad oil exploration to the list.
