New Orleans Agenda

Council President Helena Moreno took a day trip to Los Angeles to honor and recognize the success of Baby and Slim Williams and highlight their dedication to helping their hometown City of New Orleans at the YouTube Leaders and Legends Ball, which celebrates entrepreneurial achievements and groundbreaking founders in Black music and culture.

In her remarks, Councilmember Moreno ensured that the industry leaders from Los Angeles knew how much the Williams Brothers meant to New Orleans and that no matter how much success they achieved, never forgot where they came from.

Moreno emphasized all the work Baby and Slim have done to support the people of New Orleans, including donating hundreds of thousands to keep people who lost their jobs from eviction during the Pandemic, gifting thousands of meals during holidays, sponsoring local health screenings, assisting those formerly incarcerated with re-entering our community, and much more.

“It is so clear that these two men who built Cash Money Records understand that to those who much is given, much is required…and they give back with such love and compassion to the neighborhood they called home and the City of New Orleans that loves them like family,” said Council President Moreno. “Their story is a source of inspiration for generations to come, proving that with vision and tenacity, dreams can indeed come true. Congrats on 30 years of Cash Money Records!”

“Birdman and Slim embody New Orleans to their core. They defied the odds, raising up some of rap and hip hop’s most iconic figures to superstardom and shattering sales records while doing it,” said Lyor Cohen, Global Head of Music at YouTube, in a statement.

Recognition of the 30th Anniversary of Cash Money Records will continue with a major celebration and concert during this year’s Essence Festival.
