Blueface Releases New Single

The hottest breakout multi-platinum hip-hop superstar of 2019 and Cash Money West recording artist Blueface releases new single “Close Up” featuring Jeremih today. Get it HERE.
 
The track illuminates another side of Blueface, showcasing his diverse talents as he delivers a West Coast love song.
 
On the heels of the stratospheric success of his debut EP, Dirt Bag, Blueface is putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated full-length album—coming very soon.
 
Blueface flipped rap upside down in 2019 with his own flow, flare, and fire. Dirt Bag yielded one banger after another with “Bleed It” [68 million Spotify streams], “Daddy” featuring Rich The Kid [49 million Spotify streams], “Bussdown” featuring Offset [14 million Spotify streams], and “Bussin” featuring Lil Pump [9.7 million Spotify streams], to name a few. As part of his recent inclusion on the XXL “Freshman Cover,” the outlet proclaimed him “one of the hottest new acts in the game” and claimed “the 22-year-old rapper has drawn comparisons to legends like E-40 and Juvenile due to the off-kilter flow that finds him rapping against the current of whatever beat he’s on.” Echoing this sentiment, Complex wrote, “his cadence—skittering and almost comical—doesn’t fit neatly into the current (or past) landscape of hip-hop. But that’s exactly what makes him so interesting.”

Birdman & Juvenile “Just Another Gangsta”

BIRDMAN & JUVENILE RELEASE NEW ALBUM Just Another Gangsta AVAILABLE TODAY

Available at All Digital Retailers Now

Nodding to the golden age of Cash Money Records, Birdman & Juvenile team up to release their collaborative album J.A.G. at all digital retailers today.

Short for “Just Another Gangster,” both the album title and lead single “J.A.G.” take you back to the bouncy bling era of the label by reuniting legendary Co-Founder and multi-platinum rapper Birdman with Southern luminary and fellow icon Juvenile. The larger-than-life music video already surpassed 4.3 million YouTube/VEVO views, and the song impacted radio in February where it continues rising.

On the track, these two New Orleans titans lock into a lyrical back-and-forth before delivering a chanting refrain over a slick bass line and steady beat. With a whole lot of swag and style. It’s as infectious and icy as anything they’ve ever done together, and it evokes the timeless nature of their chemistry initially honed by way of collaborations from dozens of classic releases.

“J.A.G.” is stacked with bold and big bangers. “Dreams” featuring Choppa showcases more slick Southern flows over acoustic guitar and piano. Choppa brings his own fire to the track as Juvenile turns up with another hummable hook. “Broke” unfolds with street wit and charm, while a bluesy guitar lead gives way to rhyme fireworks on the nostalgic “Back Then.” “From The Bottom” could serve as a mission statement for either Juvenile or Birdman as it documents the come-up to triumph in vivid detail. The album concludes on the hard-hitting and bounce-driven “One Two.”

The entire project sees Birdman and Juvenile rapping with focus and fire that’s always fresh. Additionally, it features production courtesy of Rich Gang in-house team.

Birdman and Juvenile recently engaged a full court press blitz that saw them appearing on multiple television and radio shows. They notably guested on The Wendy Williams Show to perform the title track and speak on the project. Additionally, Juvenile guested on The Breakfast Club, and his appearance racked up a staggering 100K views in under six hours as it approached the 400k mark now.

CASH MONEY RECORDS x TURKEY GIVEAWAY

Continuing a 22-year holiday tradition, Cash Money Records will host its annual turkey giveaway in New Orleans, LA on Tuesday, November 20th. Once again, label Co-Founders and brothers Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Birdman” Williams return to their hometown in order to give back, uplift, and spread hope, spirit, and cheer for the holidays. Full details can be found below.

For the Williams Brothers, this charity stands out as a cornerstone of the label’s core mission and values. Given their lifelong commitment to philanthropy, they co-founded 501(c)(3) organization The Johnny and Gladys Williams Foundation—named after their parents. Among many initiatives, the Foundation presents the turkey giveaway, providing families throughout the community with a bountiful Thanksgiving meal every year. As a result of their work, the company remains a paragon in the community.

With the William Brothers on-site, this will be the fifth year that Cash Money hosts the event at New Home Full Gospel Ministries (1605 Carondelet Street; New Orleans, LA 70130) from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Walmart generously donates the turkeys, and Rouses provides the sides and fixings. Birdman’s newest innovation Stunna Brand, Inc. comes aboard as a sponsor for the first time. Radio station Q93 kicks out the jams all day, and NOLA Games On Wheels engages families with entertainment and video games.

Back for the fifth time, the turkey giveaway includes full-service health screenings by Ochsner Health Systems. Services span testing for glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure, dental care, eye exams, quick look EKG’s, stroke assessment, and more. Attendees may receive counseling and information on heart healthy diet, kidney disease, pre-natal care, and diabetes as well as smoking cessation programs and healthy recipe books.

Also, for the fifth year, Dr. David Liang [Director, Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease] and his staff administer Aortic Disease and Marfan Syndrome heart screenings.

The Turkey Giveaway is something we’ve been doing since the beginning of Cash Money,” states Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams. “The moment we made it, we knew we had to lift up our hometown. It was always a part of the label’s vision and brand from day one. Over the years, it’s become something the community can rely on and trust. To me, that’s our greatest accomplishment. We’ve received so many blessings, we want to share those with the city we love and call home.”

Birdman continues, “You could take away the success, the money, and everything. It doesn’t matter. What matters most is the people who were with you since day one: your neighborhood, your friends, and your family. We’ve never forgotten how New Orleans put us first. The Turkey Giveaway is a way to say ‘Thank you’ to everybody we love. Out of everything, it’s what we want people to associate Cash Money with. This defines our legacy.”
