Birdman Marks 20th Anniversary Of Cash Money Records With New Mobile App – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire Cash Money Records is gearing up to celebrate 20-years in the biz. There's no doubt that the iconic label has consistently put hits on the board, making it one of the most successful labels of all time. Of course making label history was easy thanks to an extensive roster of some of the greatest artists of all time. A lot has happened since 1991, good and bad. Unfortunately, Cash Money has consistently been sued over money. To date at least a third of its artists have filed suit, or settled out of court over financial disputes.
In recent years the label's flagship artist Lil Wayne has filed suit claiming Birdman and Slim have robbed him of millions in royalties, album sells, and reneged on various contractual obligations. As previously reported this year Jas Prince (son of Rap-A-Lot founder James Prince) has also launched a lawsuit against the label, over Drake's record deal and missing royalties.
Meanwhile Birdman and Slim are trying to move beyond the legal drama, and looking forward to celebrating their legendary label's 20th anniversary. Allhiphop reports this September Cash Money will premiere its first interactive mobile app. Slim said in a recent press release, “The app engages fans on the modern playing field, while celebrating our history. It’s the perfect balance." He continued, “I can remember selling our first releases out of my car, and I can’t wait to see how the album artwork comes to life in the digital space! It’s the beginning of yet another era for Cash Money.”
The Cash Money mobile app will offer users a ton of interesting play options, to include using their own photos to redesign past album covers, tattoo and sticker packs. In addition fans will be able to stream more than 15 classic music videos, watch behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from various artists and filmmakers. So be on the lookout! The exclusive app will be available on all digital formats in the AppStore, September 1.
