Add Some Cash Money Bling to Your Ring in the New Year!

Add Some Cash Money Bling to Your Ring in the New Year!

NEW YORK, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Add some Cash Money bling to your ring in the New Year! Universal Records and Cash Money Records are pleased to announce the mobile debut of Cash Money Records. Master Ringtones from Cash Money Records are now available for the first time. All the top tones from the #1 Southern Hip Hop label: Lil Wayne "Fireman," "Go DJ," "Tha Block is Hot," and "Get Off The Corner," BG "Bling Bling," Big Tymers "Still Fly" and "#1 Stunna," Juvenile "Back That Thang Up," and many more. Over 20 master recordings in all from the Cash Money Millionaires are now for sale at leading carriers, websites, and mobile brands.

The timing of the mobile debut of Cash Money Records couldn't be better with Cash Money Records' hottest rising superstar, Lil Wayne, having just scored a breakthrough debut in December on Billboard's Top 100 Albums chart, coming in at #2 with his new album, Tha Carter II. Lil Wayne's astonishing debut is Cash Money Records' biggest-selling debut in the hip-hop dynasty's history. Although the label boasts many top-selling artists and achieved many multi-platinum successes, this current accomplishment re-affirms Cash Money's continued prominence within the music world. And the only Cash Money ringtone to be available before January 2006 is "Fireman," the lead single off Tha Carter II. The "Fireman" ringtone in 4 weeks sold over 150,000 copies! All of Lil Wayne's hit songs and many of the new songs off Tha Carter II are available now as must-have ringtones!

All major telecom carriers and mobile content providers are running promotions introducing the Cash Money brand to the mobile marketplace including Amp'd Mobile, Boost Mobile, Cingular, Moderati, Nextel, 9squared, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Virgin Mobile.

Cash Money was launched in 1991, with the Williams Brothers creating the New Orleans based company that would eventually become a national phenomenon. In 1997 the label inked a breakthrough deal with Universal Records, making the Cash Money moniker synonymous with platinum selling artists and ground breaking entrepreneurship. The hip hop empire has sold more than 25 million records since their inception, claiming an explosive array of artists from Juvenile, to Lil Wayne, to Big Tymers, Hot Boys and Teena Marie, whose new album Sapphire is due out in the spring of 2006.

Lil Wayne, who was born and raised in the infamous poverty-stricken section of New Orleans' 17th Ward, has become an inspiring symbol of the crescent city's tenacity, beginning with his rise to stardom in 1995. Lil Wayne was only 12 when he made his debut on his former label mates' B.G's True Story CD. Success with the group Hot Boys followed, featuring rappers Juvenile, Turk and B.G., with their 1997 debut album, Get It How You Live, followed by 1998's platinum certified Guerilla Warfare and 2003's Let Em Burn.

His first solo album, 1999's Tha Block Is Hot achieved platinum status. He released Lights Out in 2000, 500 Degreez in 2002 and his touchstone album, 2004's gold certified, Tha Carter, which featured the hit single "Go DJ."
