Cash Money Records Co-Founders “Birdman” & “Slim” Honored with Street Name in Hometown.

The City of New Orleans is set to honor Cash Money Records Co-Founders Bryan “Baby” Williams, also known as “Birdman,” and Ronald “Slim” Williams by naming a street after them.

The intersection of Saratoga St. and Erato St., where the Williams brothers grew up, will be christened “Honorary Williams Brothers Way” on July 3.

This street naming recognizes the Williams brothers’ significant contributions to the music industry and their lasting impact on the New Orleans community. The official ceremony will take place at the intersection from 1:30 to 2:30 PM.

Marc H. Morial, President & CEO of the National Urban League and former Mayor of New Orleans, expressed his pride in this recognition: “As former mayor of New Orleans, I’m extremely proud of the street being named in honor of ‘Baby’ and ‘Slim,’ CEOs of Cash Money Records. Their contributions to the music industry and their impact on our community have been immense, shaping the cultural landscape and providing opportunities for countless artists from the Crescent City.”


This honor precedes Birdman’s highly anticipated performance at the ESSENCE Festival on July 5 at Caesars Superdome. The show, titled “Birdman and Friends,” will feature a lineup of Cash Money Records’ greatest hits and guest appearances. During the performance, Marc Morial will present a proclamation recognizing the Williams brothers’ outstanding contributions to hip-hop culture and their philanthropic efforts.
